Since it’s been so long since I got around to posting on here I thought I’d finally get back into it by doing reviews of all the poker books I’ve read, and there are many. I figured a good place to start would be the first book I ever read. Winning Low-Limit Hold’em by Lee Jones. I had been playing poker for a while when my buddy Matt let me borrow this book. This was back in the early 90’s before the poker boom and at the time I didn’t even realize there were books on how to play poker. I had been playing on Yahoo games for play money for some time. This book really opened my eyes to the fact that there is a lot of analysis that can be done at the poker table. I photo copied the starting hands chart from the back and caried it with me to memorize. It really is a great book to start with, and as the name states it is for “Low Limit Hold’em”. The ideas in this book work great for low limit, where the blinds are 2-4 and below. However it is my personal opinion that if you just stuck to what you read in this book at higher limits you would get run over and have an overal negative expectation. So if you are just starting out in Limit Holdem and want to win at the penny tables give this book a read.
