I’m proud today to officially announce Small Stakes No Limit Hold’em by Ed Miller, Sunny Mehta, and Matt Flynn. It’s the affordable poker ebook.
Yesterday I posted an update on the book, and since then – as can be expected in the fast-paced world of poker ebooks – a few things have changed.
We hit an unfortunate snag with the timing tells section. You see I always play poker by dialing in with my 14.4kb modem to an ISP located in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I learned long ago that online poker is rigged for anyone who lives in Slovenia. At first I was preparing a move to that land of Alpine serenity and unnerving hyper-aggression, but then this dialing-in tactic came to me in a moment of pure inspiration. Sure it costs a little extra in international calling fees, and I can only play one table at a time. But it’s so worth it to finally be able to hit a freaking set once in a while. (I’ll sell the dial-up number for $5k. Email me.)
Anyway, I developed the timing tells software using the dialup connection. Yesterday I sent the software to Sunny for the first time to test on his broadband connection, and wouldn’t you know the HUD was saying that everyone had aces all the time. So there are a few more bugs than I thought, and I’m afraid we’re not going to have this material ready in time for the book release. The software package is also unfortunately indefinitely on hold.
And the postflop chart. Funny story. Matt read my post yesterday and gave me a call. It turns out that for the last four months he’s been in intense training for a cagefighting match and he never got around to writing the chart. So I’m sorry, but we’re not going to have that for you either.
Enough about what isn’t in the book. Let’s talk about what is. Here is the high-level Table of Contents.
