Default About SSHE

Hiya - first post here.

I have just bought sshe and is reading it right now.
Somewhere on this forum I heard someone talking about how it would fuck up new peoples play.

My question is why it would do that? It would be nice if I could escape from that trap.

Thanks for any replies( please treat me kindly, I am new here

People read it and misapply its information incorrectly.

They try to get their agression up, without considering when it is right to be agressive.

People have most trouble with protecting their hands, playing in big pots and playing overcards.
I hope it isn't your first book and you are already fit on pot odds and have a little practise with the game.

That was fast

No, this isn't my first book.
I have been playing for some time at lowlimit and are doing ok.
Through my school years I have a solid statistical understand which helps with pot odds.

Anyway - thanks for the answer

Try reading Winning Low Limit Holdem by Lee Jones first.

a book you should probably read before SSHE is Moneymaker by Chris Moneymaker. It deals with a lot of the psychological problems novice players have, mostly their mistakes and misconceptions. It also comes with front and back covers and a picture of Chris on the front.

I couldn't agree more. Chris Moneymaker's book is da bomb. I mean, look at the guys last name, says it all. He does delve deeply into the finer points of the game as far as betting habits of newer players, and proper raise amounts to show strength along with some key notes on how to recognize strength as well. AAAA+++++++ Would read it again!

I have not heard of that book. Is it geared towards poker in general or a particular game?

And that is such a great last name for a poker player.
