Unique Ideas and Concepts
Strategy, Game Theory, and Psychology
from Two Renowned Gambling Experts
Poker is a game of many different concepts and ideas, and the relative importance of these ideas has changed over the years as different forms of poker gain and lose popularity. But the underlying theory of how to approach poker, and in particular no-limit hold ’em, still remains the same.
Since 2005, David Sklansky and Mason Malmuth have each been writing four essays a year, covering a variety of topics, for the monthly Two Plus Two Online Poker Strategy Magazine. Some of these Essays are easy reading, while some of them address the more challenging aspects of advanced poker theory, but all of them are designed to help the reader think correctly about poker and to improve their games.
