Poker books used to be highly popular in the poker world. Now however, as technology has developed, poker books are becoming a thing of the past and sales are down over the last few years. This is because the internet is becoming such a valuable source of information to an online poker player, they feel there is no need to read poker books when they can read hundreds of articles for free. Also creations such as poker training sites and coaching, players think money can be better spent then on a poker book.
Although most books are dated now, they still have great information in them which would be a impossible task to find elsewhere. Some books should still be read by all poker players, which we will list now.
1 – Phil Gordon’s Little Green Book
Written by a true poker legend, Phil Gordon, this book gives players a fantastic insight into poker math and other fundamental factors in the game of poker. His writing is top class, with added humour where possible. He tells readers in the book this is how he plays poker, and doesn’t care who disagrees with him.
The book also tells players exactly what they want to know, without the useless dribble involved. He goes through making big lay downs and why to make them, why he would make a bet in certain decisions and where you would be best to call.
Overall this book shouldn’t be over looked by players, as for a small price you are paying for the individual views of a player who has seen pretty much everything in the poker world and even if you disagree with what he says, there is no doubting this is a great read.
