Professional No Limit Hold ‘em Update

As many of you know, I’m working on a book with no-limit experts Matt Flynn and Sunny Mehta called Professional No Limit Hold ‘em. Several people have asked recently for an update on it, so here it is:

We put together a completed manuscript at the beginning of the month, but it needed another thorough editing pass. If things have seemed a little slow around here the past 10 days or so, that’s why. I’ve been spending virtually all of my writing time combing through the manuscript, and I think the extra effort has definitely been worth it. I have another few days worth of hard work to do on it.

So all the writing is finished, and we’re doing what I hope is the final major editing pass. Once the manuscript is finalized, it’s probably another two to three months or so until it is printed and available for purchase. I’ll post updates again as we reach important milestones. It’s a very interesting book that highlights strongly an aspect of no limit that I don’t see discussed often. I’m excited to see what people think of it.

I’m more excited than when I was waiting for Star Wars Episode I.

Will we get a sneak preview on NPA?

Sorry, no sneak preview here. You may get one on 2+2 though.

not even a “table of contents”?

Nothing was “wrong” with it, it just needed another go-over. It’s normal to edit and re-edit manuscripts several times before they are ready for publication.

We did send it to Mason, which was the first time he’d seen any of it… in contrast, I submitted the previous books in pieces to Mason as they were written, so this process has been a little different. Mason gave some excellent feedback that I’m incorporating into my edit.

Unfortunately, I can’t tease anything on this website. I’m sure there will be some teasing on 2+2 when the time comes.

Hey Ed
How does this book compare to No limit holdem theory and practice?

The two books barely compare. They each explore largely separate aspects of the game, and they’re written in different ways. PNLH explores one critical aspect of the game with a fair amount of focus, whereas NLHTAP is more like a survey.

Hey Ed,
I’m happy for you that an end is in sight. I know it’s ALOT of hard work.

I for one don’t need any teasers. The fact that y’all collaborated on a book and 2+2 is publishing it is already more teaser than I can handle. I’m not getting over anxious either. As a somewhat recent convert form Limit, I figure the more time I have for experience the more the book will help me.

On a pesonal note, I thought of you last night Ed. ( Because of your writing ). My no-limit game had a breakthrough . I stopped trying to win.

Anyway, looking forward to your all’s book. (=

Hi Ed,

Does the book deal with the approach and plan to a session when one joins a NL cash game? I find this a major problem for me. When I am palying a tournament, heads up or short stacked I know what I have to do as soon as I sit down… but I am often lost after an hour being dealt dead cards/mediocre holdings in a cash game. I often think that I should be mentally prepared for cash games as I am in other formats.

I am looking forward anyway to read your book.


[…] skipping some of the short stack-related questions lately because I’m biding some time until Professional No Limit Hold ‘em comes out. I really want the ideas in PNLH to be “out there” and well-known before I […]

Is there any way to pre-order a copy? Apologies if already dealt with, but I didn’t see it anywhere.
