Holden is an experienced poker player who does not pretend to be as expert as the world's top pros; but he can write better than them - and he knows most well enough to milk them for personalized advice, tips and subtle strategies. HOLDEN ON HOLD'EM thoroughly analyses the difference between home and casino play, between cash and tournament play, between internet poker and the real thing against real human beings. Amid definitive charts and tables of odds, probabilities and other statistics, sample hands, advice on etiquette and other niceties, there will be sections on bluff, tells and the nuances of 'position' and 'outs', as well as a brief history of the game and anecdotes about its great players. This book can claim to be the first really readable manual in the history of poker! An entertaining, anecdote-packed and invaluable companion to the narrative poker classics BIG DEAL and BIGGER DEAL.

When Anthony Holden was the only British player in the 1988 world poker championships in Las Vegas - with which his classic poker book, BIG DEAL, begins - there were 167 entrants. Last year there were 2,500; this July, when he plays in it again, they are expecting 8,000. Such is the recent expansion of poker, thanks to TV and the internet, that poker has recently become very big business.The biggest online poker site, PartyPoker.com, is making 500 a minute - and about to float on the stock market, after barely five years in business, at a value of some 5.5 billion. What qualities do you need to play poker well? How do you know when to bet, raise or fold? When to bluff? What's the difference between casino poker and online poker? Where to buy chips? Which online site to choose - and how much to risk?Anthony Holden, the game's finest writer, will answer all these questions and more, adding a brief history of the game and anecdotes about its great players, how it recently got so popular, and a glossary of useful poker terms - as well as advice on the percentage chances of winning a hand, the subtleties of 'position', the difference between pot-limit and no-limit poker, and so on. Aimed at those wishing to play Texas Hold'em, the poker game played on TV and in the world championships, Holden's manual will be the definitive starter's guide.

In 1988, best-selling biographer Anthony Holden spent one year living the life of a professional poker player. His mesmerizing account of that year went on to become a classic of the genre, an inspiration to innumerable poker players and poker memoirists who followed. Big Deal is his story of days and nights in Las Vegas, Malta, and Morocco, mingling with the greats, sharpening his game, perfecting his repartee, and learning a great deal about himself in the process. Poker, Holden would insist, is a paradigm of life at its most intense, a gladiatorial contest that brings out the best as well as the worst in people. The heroes and eccentrics of the poker world stalk the pages of this remarkable book, along with all the hairraising, nail-biting excitement of the game itself.
