    1. If you happen to be a person that1 does not cry when you see a bunch of equations and in fact do not mind writing a few equations to find the answers you really want 2 can overlook some ugly formatting errors3 plays poker and would like to know how to approach some situations in a game theoretically optimal fashionthen this will be an extremely enlightening book for you It was for me If you just want charts of which hands to play in hold em, this will be less useful.It s not like you need to kn [...]

    2. I expounded on this when talking about Bill Belichick and his supposed genius, but I ll repeat it briefly here Imagine there is a lottery for 200 Million and each ticket costs 1 The odds of winning are 1 in 10 million What should you do Mathematically, you should liquidated your life savings and buy buy buy Your expected value for each ticket is 20 when it only costs 1 Realistically, you won t because there s only a 1 in 10 million chance you ll win, and should you lose you still need to eat.Th [...]

    3. Great book that makes you think about poker from bigger perspective The single most important think about this book is that it is not obsolete, like all other books about poker strategy When we talk about game theoretic solutions to games, we are talking about a timeless solution, that isn t dependent on the trends in play, isn t dependent on our opponents, it is inherent in the structure of the game.The book will help you to shape your play in a way so that you can confidently detach yourself f [...]

    4. Practically speaking, poker is too complex of a game for humans to analyze completely using math it will eventually be done using computers While this book provides detailed mathematically analyses of many poker mini games the onus is on the reader to figure out how to apply that to his her strategy in real games Unfortunately, it is far from obvious as to how to go about doing this which probably explains why this issue is hardly addressed in the book.

    5. The math is solid, but the writing is fairly hard to decipher A classic for poker theory, but maybe not the best read for most players.

    6. This isn t really a strategy book, but rather sets a standard for those interested in the math behind poker.

    7. This is a fantastic poker book, it s a great math book, and it s a fabulous game theory book I wish this were a textbook for a graduate course because that s the way it reads I m going to be going over the work in this volume again and again in order to understand the concepts By far the best examination of poker I ve encountered.

    8. Interesting math Made me think More complex than you need at the table, but I like that they back up their results with logical proof A good read for a learning player.
