A lot of poker books promise instant success, screaming “Crush the online games” or “How I won a million dollars playing poker”. They suggest that poker is actually rather easy and that anyone with five minutes to spare can quickly gain expertise in the game. But you know that these claims simply aren’t true.

To achieve mastery of poker is not easy – it requires a great deal of deep thinking. Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold ‘em is a unique and remarkable book, providing a clear framework with which to analyse the game. The author Will Tipton, a PhD candidate at Cornell University, demonstrates how decision trees can be used to model complex poker decisions. Starting with simple preflop-only situations, he moves on to consider deeper concepts such as balance, the analysis of ranges, and the theory behind optimal bet sizing.

Why study Heads Up No Limit? Because a deep understanding of this format is crucial for the modern poker player. It’s a very exciting game in its own right, but it’s also critical for the final stages of tournament or sit’n’go play. If you find yourself playing for first prize, you will be playing heads up for a great deal of money. Perfecting your play will give you the edge to maximise your expectation whether you are competing for the big money or grinding out your profit in heads up cash games or SNGs.

Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold ‘em will give you that edge by:

* helping you identify and maximally exploit opponents’ tendencies
* giving you a clear explanation of the practical application of theoretical ideas
* developing your intuition about game theory so that you can apply its lessons directly at the tables

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Nicht wieder ein Buch was das offensichtliche wiederholt sondern neue Dinge vorstellt und einem die Grundlagen beibringt Teile des Spiels zu lösen.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Ich bin enttäuscht von dem Buch. 11. August 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Bevor man dieses Buch kauft, soll man einen ausführlichen Blick rein werfen.

Obwohl ich ein guter Heads Up Spieler bin, hält sich für mich der Nutzen dieses Buches sehr in Grenzen. Es ist viel zu komplex aufgebaut.

Es gibt ein neues Buch vom Phil Gorden. Das Interview mit dem Daniel Cates am Ende des Buches ist allein den Preis wert (wenn man ein HU Spieler ist).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Advanced Analysis for Heads Up Hold'em 29. November 2012
Von Terry Linhardt - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a pretty amazing book. To provide some perspective, if poker analysis was offered as a college degree, this would no doubt be the text book of choice for the class on heads up play.

This book is highly theoretical, and provides a framework for making real-play decisions. That being said, don't expect sections on "how to play against loose-aggressive players." It just isn't that type of book.

I think a lot of the Moshman book on heads up play. ("Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em") However, Moshman is more of a primer compared to this book. Moshman is full of "practical" advice, but the Tipton book is highly theoretical. Both books are good, but very different in style and approach. My guess is that the "average" poker player will require 2 or 3 reads of the Tipton book just to understand it....and additional reads in order to extract full value.

If you want a somewhat breezy intro to heads up play, read Moshman. But if you have read Moshman and now seek a mathematical, theory-based approach to heads up play, then get the Tipton book. I readily recommend the book, but only to those individuals who stand ready to devote the "study time" required to understand this text.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant groundbreaking book. Could change the game. 10. Januar 2014
Von Jason Wortham - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have probably over 30 poker books sitting on my shelf, which I've read. This book stands out from all of the others being incredibly original and deep.

You need to read this book slowly and deeply, to get the most out of it. He continuously casually drops big ideas, which you could miss if you're not careful.
Also, calling the book "Heads Up" is somewhat bad marketing. I'm a heads-up player, but certainly non-heads-up players should take big interest in this book. Too often at a full table you get into heads-up situations, and this range-vs-range thinking is very applicable to any such heads-up situation.

He gives convincing arguments about the math of "check-to-the-raiser", and when it is or isn't appropriate (depends on the flop). This goes along with arguments about when to C-Bet (again, depends purely on the flop). He gives convincing arguments for block-betting, and convinced me that I don't do it often enough and it's a clear leak in my game. As well he gives arguments about thinking about the required frequency for trapping. It's too easy in soft passive games to not maintain the right trapping frequency, since pushing value is so clear in softer games. But in tough games, some hands should trap rather than push value (since your tough opponent should be properly aggressive to your check).

I will read this book again. The 8 examples that evolve from shallow (estimating ranges) to deep analysis (finding best range play) as the book progresses, end up with truly surprising results at the end of the book.

I've only seen 2 other books in this genre, showing Game-Theory-Optimal analysis: Bill Chen's "Mathematics of Poker", followed by Colin Moshman's headsup book. Both are great books, but this book has definately surpassed them and taken the thinking to another level.

Brilliant Job, Will Tipton... You've inspired me to some deep analysis programming...

5.0 von 5 Sternen enjoyed a lot - took a while to slog thru though but worth it; :). 20. November 2012
Von Jevon Jaconi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Very intriguing book about how to play heads up poker using a variety of mathematical approaches. Chapter 4 and beyond had many neat applications that I hadn't seen in print before. Looking forward to volume 2 (particularly the recursion portion).

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Terrific Book On Heads Up Hold 'Em 2. August 2014
Von Joshua - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
My review of Volume 1 & 2 are the same - I have copied and pasted the review from Volume 2 here, as I accidentally reviewed that one first.

Excellent book. I've played as a serious amateur now since 2005, and I never did well at the online HU tables. I've spent some time studying this book (I've read it twice through and anticipate at least two more readings) and my play has gotten much better. Unreservedly recommend this book. Unless you might play me at some point, in which case please do not read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Forefront of Poker Strategy and Theory 22. März 2014
Von Geoff Cahayom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
What makes this book special is how different and advanced it is compared to much of the work out there.

Will Tipton does a great job of explaining poker using a game theoretic framework. I think his use of game trees (and gambit) to explain decision making will be at the forefront of poker strategy. He also has a different concept of calculating EV that is integral to understanding poker through his approach.

It's a book worth reading and rereading. Put in the time and effort and it will certainly payoff.
Volume 2 will be released next month and it will be interesting to read the next installment.
