I have spent 70% of my gambling time in the NL Tx Holdem poker cash game (mainly in 1-3 or 2-5) in the past 3 months instead of playing 100% BJ and I made more money from playing poker than BJ. I know I have been lucky. I have finished reading "Harrington on Cash Games". Do you guys know any good books out there?

Super System 2 is the best cash-game poker book.

I would advise you branch out beyond just NLHE as the biggest edges are in other poker games.

I own Super System 1 and 2 and Mike Caro's Book Of Poker Tells.
I enjoyed and gained much from these books.
I recomend them.

Regarding the Doyle Brunson Super System books they were more technical work.

Regarding the Poker Tells book,I have always been good at reading people coming from the grocery/retail business.
I enjoy people watching and I especially enjoy it if I can win money from it.

I am so old I have Cairo's tell's on cassette tape. I think it was $4.99 when I bought it

there are a lot of books, i have read most of them, the last one is everything poker
from Bill Burton and Frank Scoblete.

I guess we are all looking for the perfect book, but there is none. You may get
some thing that helps from them all. Also if your play seems to need a little
help. different books can help at different times.

As mentioned above the Ed Miller books are a must.

I would add his book playing the player, and how to read hands....both are geared towards low stake live poker



Its also worth considering subscribing to crush live poker (at live at the bike)....its a video series on live poker done by Bart Hanson. He edits the live at the bike games with discussion on how the hands should have been played. You actually see the players play 2-5 5-5. I think it cost like $10 a month (I have not subscribed for over a year so it may have gone up)....but once you subscribe you can down load all the old ones it must be over a 100 now...and then cancel.

I completely disagree. I find that every random idiot who wants to play "some poker" sits down at 1-2. It takes a higher intelligence level to win at the other games and those are too complicated for the random idiot to play in.
