Winning at Internet Poker for Dummies
Mark Harlan and Chris Derossi
Reviewed by Stallion on Sep. 10, 2005.
As you might expect, Winning at Internet Poker for Dummies is not
written for the high-level poker player. However, even this title is a
bit misleading. There is very little information that can help the
reader win at internet poker. Instead, the book mainly provides basic
instruction on how to set up and fund an online account.
The poker advice here is sparse, to say the least. Much of the
"advice" is limited to encouraging newbies to be very conservative as
they select the limits to begin playing at. Although Harlan and
Derossi do suggest beginning with play-money tables, they do a good
job of cautioning that playing these tables can lead to the
development of bad habits. The end of the book contains some basic
strategy for single-table tournaments. To be fair, the authors make it
clear in the introduction that this is not a full-scale poker strategy
book. Still, one wonders why this book needed to be printed in the
The book is organized fairly well, with an extensive
table of contents. The authors encourage the reader to jump around
from chapter to chapter, and this is easily done. Of course, the
Winning at Internet Poker title is deceptive, given the information
contained in the book. You could easily picture a girlfriend or mother
buying this as a gift for a poker player, thinking that it would help
improve his game. Of course, this is not the case, since this book
contains almost nothing of value to anyone who knows how to use
internet poker software.
