Poker Book Review Archives

Dan Harrington's list of poker accomplishments is quite long. He won the WSOP Main Event in 1995, made the final table in 1987 and finished in the top 4 in 2003 and 2004 (the two largest tournament fields ever assembled at the time).

Harrington has developed a reputation for rock-solid, patient play and published his concepts for this type of play in his book, "Harrington On Hold'em". Harrington teams up with backgammon champion Bill Robertie to present volume one of two in his series on No-Limit tournament play.

"Harrington On Hold'em" has so much content it is a reread for most players. Introductory concepts are somewhat covered, but readers are expected to have some no-limit knowledge. More advanced concepts are covered such as common playing styles, tournament types, getting a feel for a table, odds and hand analysis.

Harrington uses many real-life hand examples to go through his more thought-provoking strategies. Harrington's writing style resembles his play, solid. His ideas can be easily grasped with his expressive thoughts and his broken down examples. Harrington follows this title up with vol. 2 focusing on strategy changes to make late in tournaments and special situations.

Harrington has proved himself at the poker table and now he has proved himself as a poker writer with these must have titles for any tournament player.
