Synopsis

Learn Poker in 10 Minutes by Brian Byfield, Gray Jolliffe

Poker has never been more popular. It's played in all sorts of places - in serious international tournaments, at the casino, socially with friends and, of course, online. If you don't know how to play it, you're missing out, and here's where this book comes in! It gives you all the information you need to go off and play your first poker game. In clear, easy-to-follow text, backed up with helpful diagrams and amusing cartoons, and concentrating on the most popular poker variant, Texas Hold 'Em, the author shows you how to set up a game, how to bet (when to raise and when to fold), the values of the different hands, and the different versions of poker you can play. It also covers the essential psychological skills used by the best players. Armed with the information in this book, you'll become an expert poker player - in extra-quick time!

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.
