"The book comes in two major sections. First you’ll read a series of hand examples. These examples are designed to show you the difference between how a typical no-limit hold’em player thinks and how a professional-level player thinks. Each of these hand examples represents a small improvement you can make in your play. The second section turns the lessons from the first section into missions you can do on your own. These missions are the equivalent of recipes in a book on nutrition or exercises in a workout book. Doing the missions—doing them as often and using as much your brain on them as possible—are what will make you a better poker player. Do the missions, and you’ll see results. Ignore the missions, and you likely won’t." from the Foreword by Ed Miller -Author of Playing the Player, How To Read Hands At No-Limit Hold’em, Small Stakes Hold’em

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best Poker Book I've ever read 23. Juli 2013
Von Ken - Veröffentlicht auf
I'm a poker player that you have never heard of. I'm no one special but I am a winning player.

I have over 100 poker books in my library and this is the first one I've ever been compelled to write a review on.

Since reading "Poker Plays You Can Use" by Doug Hull, I have plugged some leaks in my game and my win rate is starting to go up. It's also made poker more fun for me.

Mr. Hull has put together many scenarios in his book, scenarios you will see almost every time you're at the poker table, that are good spots to make bluffs and semi-bluffs. You see these situations over and over.

The illustrations are presented in a way that you can plainly see every aspect of the hands being discussed. Again, these are situations you see over and over. You will recognize most of these situations and probably find that you have folded hands that you could have won if you would have taken a different approach.

If you follow his advice on planning your hands, you will find that your decisions will be easier and you will have a much better understanding of why you are playing the hand the way you are against the different types of opponents.

When discussing classifying opponents, rather than saying do this against a certain type of player the book gives you tendencies to watch for in your opponents that form patterns you can easily exploit.

The book gives you 24 missions designed to take you out of your comfort zone and give you a logical, framework to improve your game slowly. Mission 2 is one of my favorites: I will never, under any circumstance, limp pre-flop. It does not matter if every player at the table has limped in before you and you are on the Button with JTs. Raise or fold. When I applied this mission, not only did I have a winning session, I had a lot of fun doing it.

He is very up front about the strategies he has outlined. "They are winning moves over time; they are not winning moves every time".

"Some of these strategies will stay in your game indefinitely".

You will also find combinatorics you can use at the table and they're great for bluff catching.

If you're an experienced player, I would highly recommend "Plays You Can Use".

If you're a beginning player, I would recommend putting the book in you library for future use.

The game of poker may evolve but you will use these strategies for decades.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic -- A Must For Every Poker Library 25. Juli 2013
Von MJG - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I anxiously started reading the various plays to see how to better exploit the donks on the strip, but about a third of the way into the book I was recognizing dumb plays that *I* make. This book might make me more money by plugging my leaks rather than adding bullets to my gun!

Read it over quickly and note the most interesting plays. Then study each play in detail and at length noting your own leaks. Then go back again looking at your leaks.

I haven't tried the "missions" yet but the hand-by-hand section is just pure gold. It presents practical examples that might actually happen in a real cash game. Gus Hansen's Every Hand Revealed was a hand-by-hand book that focused on high-level tournament play. And, while excellent for its purpose, wasn't as practical for low-level tournaments -- let alone cash games. This book fills that gap. Real-world practical situations and advice.

This book is an instant classic and will pay for itself over and over if you are a ring game player. No serious student can afford to ignore it. `Nuff said.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Will make you a COMPLETE LIVE PLAYER 11. Juni 2013
Von Just Peachy - Veröffentlicht auf
I bought this book, mainly because I know any book Ed Miller had something to do will help your game. I was very pleased to know that the author was trained by Ed Miller and brings to the game a great pedigree.

If you are LIVE CASH player, these are the books you want to be reading. These authors doesnt take you back to a hand in the WSOP and break down what the pros do. They have real life player traits from live games they play in Vegas and NJ, and their descriptions are pretty spot on for the players you meet everyday at your local cardroom.

I really wish I would of found books like this when I first started playing. What is really cool about POKER PLAYS YOU CAN USE. He sends you to the card room with missions and each mission builds upon the last. For players like me who are never sure when to pull the trigger, These books break down hands so well that, you should not only know when to pull the trigger, but you will also know how the other player will react.

You cant put this into word how good they are. But I will say once you start reading it, you might start thinking, about how to play OPTIMAL POKER. These books will have you ready for 1/2 and 2/5 LIVE and quite possibly 5/10

I find Doug Hull's approach very understandable and RECOMMEND THIS BOOK WITHOUT HESITATION, (just think, one hand at your card room that you applied this advice to, and THE BOOK WILL HAVE PAID FOR ITSELF)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book! 11. Juli 2013
Von John W. Conklin - Veröffentlicht auf
This remarkable book is the perfect sequel to Ed Miller's two excellent books on hand reading and on "Playing the Player." It involves great improvements in the readers game, particularly increasing aggression in the post-flop game, and emphasizing the necessity and methods of proper bet sizing.

The book is divided into two sections. The first section is organized as a series of actual hands, explained street by street. These hand are presented in a manner to make key points about how hands can be best played. The second half of the book is a series of "Missions," which are assignments for the player to do different things during games, in ways he may not be doing in his current game.

I found this book to be one of the most beneficial to my game of the many poker books I have read. When added to the Ed Miller series, this makes a pretty complete package of help for the intermediate player. I give it my highest recommendation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why it's the best poker book 12. September 2014
Von Z. Shaw - Veröffentlicht auf
Harrington's books are required reading, but they are not exactly fun to read, and the concepts are very abstract, even when examples are given.

On the other end of the spectrum Hansen's Every Hand Revealed is one of the most fun poker books to read -- pure hand analysis, plenty of strategy, but without the clinical precision of Harrington.

Negranu, Hellmuth, Brunson, Greenstein... there are some decent books written by the pros that give you a sense of how they think and play, but they are getting outdated fast.

Then there's the new breed of internet poker players who have written some great books -- Let There Be Range! ushered in a new type of book that was short on editorial quality but deep in very specific strategy. Optimal game theory really comes into its own. These books are great but sometimes feel too near-sighted and focused on very specific contexts, and the combinatorics that became the basis for modern play can be hard to follow if not presented clearly in context.

Hull's book is one of the best, if not the best poker book because it is a hybrid of all the best parts of all the other poker books that has come before it. Mathematically optimal strategies with to-the-decimal-point precision like Harrington? Check. Super-fun and easy-to-read hand analysis of real live hands like Hansen? Check. Glimpse into the thinking of a pro poker player with lots of experience? Check. Strategies based on optimal game theory with clearly presented combinatorics breakdowns, check.

And it doesn't end there. The hands in the book were mostly played at $1/$2 and $2/$5 so your average player can relate, whether they're a home game hero, an online reg or a live game leatherass. Total amateurs might want to start with another book (Hellmuth's Play Poker Like the Pros is a great into for the noob), but any intermediate to advanced poker player is going to make money from this book.

Hull's writing has the perfect tone: he feels more like a friend or peer than a teacher or coach, but that doesn't mean it's casual. There is nothing superfluous in Hull's hand analysis, every word seems carefully calculated to communicate the concepts with optimal clarity.

This book has another feature I love about many poker books: You can pick it up and read it starting at any point. Most chapters are 3 or 4 pages long and there are a TON of concepts presented in here.

At the end of the day, all that is nice, but does the book generate results? Holy crap, does it ever. I have never read a book that given my game an edge while plugging my leaks like this one.

This is a book of "spots". It shows you spots that will come up again and again in play (for example, if a nit donk-bets the flop you can float and barrel to get him off his overpair). Almost as much emphasis is put on getting value as is making smart laydowns.

If you love poker, you have to own this book. It will go down as the "Super/System" or "Harrington on Hold 'Em" of its day.
