One recommended way to improve your skills at online poker is by reading books written by experts on the subject. While there are very few books specifically pertaining to online casinos, the general casino and poker books should suffice. Below is a list where I have compiled the very best casino and poker books.
1. Harrington on Hold’em, Volume 1: Expert Strategy for No Limit Tournaments: Strategic Play
This book is considered to be one of the definitive books on strategic play in online casinos. The author holds the world champion title at the 1995 World Series of Poker and is considered to be one of the best poker players in the world.
In the book, he explains how to optimize betting patterns, how to play and win the most money possible, how to analyze hands, and more. The strategies listed in the book have withstood the test of time and have proven their ability to turn the tide of a poker game. This is a recommended read for any poker player looking to try out playing professionally.
In addition to volume 1 of his series, there are two other books that go into more detail regarding poker skills and betting strategies. After you have completed the first book, the other two are also good reads.
2. Every Hand Revealed
The critically-acclaimed online poker strategy book, “Every Hand Revealed” is written by Gus Hansen. Poker enthusiasts will know him not only to be the only player who won three world poker tour tournaments but as one of the best professional poker players in the world. He is known for his aggressive style and the analytic way in which he plays a tournament.
In this book, he goes over fundamental poker basics and even delves into advanced poker theory. Not only does he go over his own mathematical analysis before he proceeds with a play but he also explains how you can improve your own poker analysis skills. This is definitely a good read.
3. The Theory of Poker: A Professional Poker Player Teaches You How To Think Like One
In this book, David Sklansky discusses theories and concepts regarding many different variations of poker. Unlike other books, he doesn’t just stop at poker analysis, he also discusses the psychology of the game, how to properly bluff, game theory and more.
While this book has been criticized for not being exactly “beginner-friendly”, once you get over that initial learning curve, this will turn you from an amateur player to a professional in no time at all. This is one of the best poker books available on the market today.
