Chip Tricks- Look Like a Poker Pro

This was probably the most intriguing of all the poker books we saw because picturing players doing tricks with their chips is a mental tool to utilize while playing. Getting into the mind of your fellow players is only going to give you an edge and being able to show off your skills with the chips at a poker table can make someone worry about you.

You'll find this to be not only informative, but also a lot of fun especially when it comes time to play against your opponents. Things like the shuffle, twirl, or the knuckle roll will be child's play by the time you showcase all of this books tricks. People will be looking at your style and may become quite intimidated by your combination tricks. Anything to give you an edge is well worth looking into a little more.

52 Tips for Texas Holdem Poker by Barry Shulman

Remembering when this game was first covered by ESPN, everyone thought about how boring it was to watch. Then three years later, the craze was unstoppable and today it's become the most popular card game by everyone in the country. This is why poker books like 52 tips for Texas Holdem is so popular. Everyone wants to get in on the action and there is no better way to start then getting some inside information from the beginning.

Even the 2004 World Series of Poker Player of the Year Daniel Negreanu gave credit to the book for helping anyone on any playing level or skill. One thing to always remember about this game is how important having the advantage over your opponents mentally can be. Even if you only pick of five or six new strategies, it could be the difference between your next win or an early exit from another tournament. So keep things like this in mind when looking at poker books.

Overall Opinion

We only gave you a couple poker books above that are extremely popular compared to many of them out there. We visited Poker Stars Direct and found both of these books there along with eight or nine others that were out of stock. However, they had about thirty more which were available and they were quite reasonable prices.

Another one catching our eye was the Book of Bluffs by Matt Lessinger. This would definitely be something we could see several people who play internet poker using to their advantage for both styles of play. In the end, no matter which one of these poker books you choose, they all give you something to take away that can be used at the tables to strengthen your game.
