<p><strong>Now a major motion picture, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, and Michael Cera—the true story of "Hollywood’s poker princess" who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all.</strong></p><p>Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world—an insider’s story of excess and danger, glamour and greed.</p><p>In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a twentysomething petite brunette from Loveland Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game Hollywood had ever seen—she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, few were invited to play.</p><p>Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly’s game became the game for those in the know—celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exclusive restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the world’s most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her.</p><p><em>Molly’s Game</em> is a behind the scenes look at Molly’s game, the life she created, the life she lost, and what she learned in the process.</p>

The Theory of Poker by David Sklansky discusses theories<br />and concepts applicable to nearly every variation of the game,<br />including five-card draw (high), seven-card stud, hold 'em, lowball<br />draw, and razz (seven-card lowball stud). This book introduces you to<br />the Fundamental Theorem of Poker, its implications, and how it should<br />affect your play. Other chapters discuss the value of deception,<br />bluffing, raising, the slow-play, the value of position, psychology,<br />heads-up play, game theory, implied odds, the free card, and<br />semibluffing.<br /><br /><P>Many of today's top poker players will tell you that this is the book<br />that really made a difference in their play. That is, these are the<br />ideas that separate the experts from the typical players. Those who<br />read and study this book will literally leave behind those who don't,<br />and most serious players wear the covers off their copies. This is the<br />best book ever written on poker.

There is a lot of money to be made at small stakes no-limit hold’em because… surprise, surprise… most of the players aren’t very good.<br /><br />However, few players understand exactly how to exploit these games. Competent players who generally play larger stakes will, of course, beat them. But they won’t beat them for nearly as much as they ought to. Why? Because they don’t understand how to adjust correctly.<br /><br />Playing a solid, competent, decently aggressive style is a strategy that will be profitable. That said, you should not be content with just beating these games - you should be absolutely crushing them. The trick to doing this is to disregard a lot of “correct” poker and get way out of line at the right times. The methods required are far from obvious or intuitive but in Mastering Small Stakes No-Limit Hold’em Jonathan Little explains them in great detail.<br /><br />Jonathan constructs a basic strategy to crush small stakes games and also identifies the adjustments that need to be made when facing more competent opposition.<br /><br />You need this book if…<br /><br />* You frequently play small stakes no-limit hold’em<br />* You usually play larger stakes but (especially live) often have to make do with smaller stakes games<br />* You play tournaments (such as WSOP events) that feature numerous recreational players

A lot of poker books promise instant success, screaming “Crush the online games” or “How I won a million dollars playing poker”. They suggest that poker is actually rather easy and that anyone with five minutes to spare can quickly gain expertise in the game. But you know that these claims simply aren’t true.<br /><br />To achieve mastery of poker is not easy – it requires a great deal of deep thinking. Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold ‘em is a unique and remarkable book, providing a clear framework with which to analyse the game. The author Will Tipton, a PhD candidate at Cornell University, demonstrates how decision trees can be used to model complex poker decisions. Starting with simple preflop-only situations, he moves on to consider deeper concepts such as balance, the analysis of ranges, and the theory behind optimal bet sizing.<br /><br />Why study Heads Up No Limit? Because a deep understanding of this format is crucial for the modern poker player. It’s a very exciting game in its own right, but it’s also critical for the final stages of tournament or sit’n’go play. If you find yourself playing for first prize, you will be playing heads up for a great deal of money. Perfecting your play will give you the edge to maximise your expectation whether you are competing for the big money or grinding out your profit in heads up cash games or SNGs. <br /><br />Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold ‘em will give you that edge by: <br /><br />* helping you identify and maximally exploit opponents’ tendencies<br />* giving you a clear explanation of the practical application of theoretical ideas<br />* developing your intuition about game theory so that you can apply its lessons directly at the tables
