I've just recently began studying hold'em poker in depth, and have yet to play in an organized card room. This title is a must for anyone making the jump from home games to the casino, or just looking to gain an edge in those 'no foldem, holdem' games that seem impossible to beat. It covers every detail of the game, and how different people think in low limits as opposed to the higher limits. If you're getting beat at the 3-6 game, you need this book!

An outstanding book that I've reread several times. It helps me in game plan formulation and helps me to keep my eye on the prize and not fool around when I'm up.

A wonderful guide to the wild games that exist at the low limits. Outlines a winning tight-aggressive strategy, and even shows how to adjust for different game and player types.

If you want to know what cards to play and how to play them in low-limit Hold'em this is the best book I have found. If you follow the advice in this book you should be a winner. You won't get rich but you won't get rich in low-limit anyway. The idea is to play and enjoy yourself because you will win more than you will lose.

This is a must read for anyone who has tried to beat and failed at low limit hold-em tables. It gives detailed rules for what hands to play when and how. If you religiously follow the advice in this book, you WILL beat most games up to 5-10. The problem is when you go to move up in limits, you must unlearn almost all of it. Against the weakest players at the middle limits the plays here will work, but not against all of them. For that reason, other books should be read once you have proven yourself a consistent winner at the low limits. Most notably, read Sklansky/Malmuth and Brunson. In particular, read and reread the sections on evaluating your opposition. This book was crucial in my developing my game. Its simplicity should not be seen as a weakness, as the lower limits are simpler to beat, and the discipline it takes is necessary as you move up to the more colorful games.

This was the very first poker book I picked up when I decided I wanted to improve my game, and it was probably the best decision I could have made. While not without its drawbacks, the book is very clearly written and provides an outstanding introduction to many poker concepts. The book does have its critics though, who argue that the recommended playing style is too passive; and while I agree with this characterization, I think it¿s important to keep in mind the author¿s target audience. The seasoned poker player probably won¿t find much of value here, but as an only recreational player, I found that it improved my game immensely. After a few months of mastering the techniques, though, you¿ll be ready to move on to more advanced books such as Sklansky and Malmuth¿s. Nonetheless, the material here helped turn me into a winning player at the lower limit Atlantic City games, and against the terrible players that can be found playing online these days ¿ following up on another post here about sign-up bonus codes, I found that keeps their bonus codes updated; you should definitely use one if you¿re going to start playing online. When you want to move up in limits, you¿ll probably want to pick up Hold¿em Poker for Advanced Players or Small Stakes Hold¿em, which advocate more aggressive play, but for any and all low to moderate stakes games, this book gives great advice.

This is the first book I've read on Holdem Poker. After reading the first half of the book I felt I was doing quite well. However after reading the second half of the book, my play has suffered considerably. I'm now reading 'Hold'em Poker - For Advanced Players' by Sklansky and Malmuth (A recommended reading by Lee Jones in this book) One of the major discrepencies between these two authors is where Early Position starts and Late Position ends. This could be a serious contributing factor to my recent 'bad luck'. But this book does give a good starting point and you learn some solid basics. But there is not much detail given as to how to vary the play pre-flop based on looseness/tightness and passiveness/aggressiveness of your opponents, where as this is talked about extensively from the beginning in Sklansky's book. However, I'm most curious why Jone's says Early Position starts left of the button and Sklansky starts it left of the big blind. If someone can give me a reasonable explaination why both could be right in their own context, I would be willing to raise the rating I'm giving. I'm giving 3 stars, because I believe Jones may be giving wrong advice on positional starting play based on what I've learned from Sklansky.

Having played social Hold-em for a year and casino Hold-em for less than two weeks, I have had daily winnings of $307, $180 and $176 at $3-6 tables due to books like Winning Low-Limit Hold'em.

I have read and re-read this book many times. Lee Jones does a great job in explaining exactly how to play Holdem Poker & how to win. He does a great job in explaining everything that goes into the game: game basics, player types, play before and after the flop, pot odds, true odds, and more. Whenever I find myself playing a little erratic or losing frquently I go back to this book and it gets me back on track!

This book will pay itself off the first time you go. I bought it 4 days ago and I'm up $405 since at the $2-$4 tables.

If you are a beginner (like I was), and are interested in playing Hold'em, this book is for you! I read and re-read this book several times before playing my first poker game. Then I held my own in a 4-hour session of $3-6 Hold'em against very experienced players. I never could have done it without this book. I can't recommend it enough.

It's an easy read & well laid out. It was very helpful after the first read-through & probably even more so after 100 hours of public play & reading through it again. Low-limit poker has significant differenences than higher-levels & this book explains them.
