The Theory of Poker by David Sklansky discusses theories
and concepts applicable to nearly every variation of the game,
including five-card draw (high), seven-card stud, hold ’em, lowball
draw, and razz (seven-card lowball stud). This book introduces you to
the Fundamental Theorem of Poker, its implications, and how it should
affect your play. Other chapters discuss the value of deception,
bluffing, raising, the slow-play, the value of position, psychology,
heads-up play, game theory, implied odds, the free card, and
semibluffing.

Many of today’s top poker players will tell you that this is the book
that really made a difference in their play. That is, these are the
ideas that separate the experts from the typical players. Those who
read and study this book will literally leave behind those who don’t,
and most serious players wear the covers off their copies. This is the
best book ever written on poker.

Must Have In Your Poker Library This was (I think) the first poker book that I read. In short, it’s one of the best poker books that I own. There’s plenty in here for all types of players, but it really helps get beginners on the right track when you’re starting out in the micros. Everything is clearly explained with easy to understand examples – the beauty is that even though this was written well over a decade ago the theory is still very much applicable to modern day poker. This should be one of the first poker books that…
