I'm a recent convert to Texas Hold'em, and it's captured my imagination. For a game with about 7 rules, the complexity is STAGGERING. If you're a player, where do you play? Online, socially, against the computer, tournament etc etc So far, I've mostly been social, knockout style no limit game, all with a fixed starting stack and no rebuy in. It really puts your skills to the test... so far I've been inconsistent middle of the road fodder for the sharks. What do you recommend reading? I've got two Doyle Brunson books - I think his first and second - part way through the first, but am on the hunt for some more. They're full on though - a few words can actually cover quite a few deep topics, and everything is said in context of your position, what you know about the players, their previous betting image, your betting image, pot odds, implied odds, expected value etc etc And the lingo... so much lingo. e.g. Double belly buster straight draw... Anyway, let's talk poker, strategies, experiences, memorable hands you've played or seen, etc etc. Might do us good to think about something other than the hurdles motorcycling is facing.
