Book and Software Recommendations

Most poker players learn how to play Hold'em from hours of experience at the table. While this continues to be one of the greatest teachers in the poker world, we have also been fortunate to have some of the greatest players document what they have learned in their books and software.

Listed below are some of the books that we have found to be the most beneficial. For your convenience, the links will take you to the book's page at BarnesandNoble.com where you can purchase the book. We have also provided the ability to perform a search at eBay where you can generally get the same books for less money (be sure to know the MSRP before bidding).

Also be sure to check out our software recommendations. These programs will help give you true experience in a controled environment

STACKED
with Daniel Negreanu


Although there have been a number of video games featuring texas hold'em, this is truly the best one yet. It has outstanding artificial intelligence (AI) that makes the other players in the game unpredictable and also allows you to network the game if you prefer live counterparts. One nice feature is the career mode where you can play multiple tournaments and build your player into a dominating force in the poker world
