Description

Johnny Chan, Mark Karowe.

Johnny Chan, Mark Karowe. He is regularly featured on such television networks as NBC, ESPN, and Fox Sports Net. He played himself in the movie "Rounders" opposite Matt Damon

Notably absent from Play Poker Like Johnny Chan is any in-depth discussion of card-counting or related mathematical . I've been playing poker for a while and I think that this is an excellent book. One thing I liked in particular is that it was very enjoyable to read and I learned a lot at the same time.

Notably absent from Play Poker Like Johnny Chan is any in-depth discussion of card-counting or related mathematical methodology; it is primarily an introductory guide to give the reader a hands-on understanding of game mechanics as well as the importance of the professional mindset. A lot of books that teach aren't all that fun to read, but this one is an exception. Another thing I was impressed with was the quality of the book.

Play poker like Johnny Chan – Book One: Casino Poker" is 240 pages of knowledge from this nine time WSOP bracelet winner. Co-Authored by Mark Karowe, this book provides insight from the great Chan on the most commonly played types of poker. Certainly qualified to speak on any type of card game, possibly the most impressive thing about Chan is he has WSOP bracelets in five different WSOP events (No Limit HE, Limit HE, Pot Limit Omaha, deuce to seven draw, and Seven Card Stud – Hey Johnny, where's the Razz bracelet??).

Johnny Chan (Chinese: 陳金海; born in Guangzhou, China in 1957) is a Chinese-American professional poker player. He has won 10 World Series of Poker bracelets, including the 1987 and 1988 World Series of Poker main events consecutively. Chan moved with his family in 1962 from Guangzhou to Hong Kong, then in 1968 to Phoenix, Arizona, and later in 1973 to Houston, Texas, where his family owned restaurants

Best Answer: One of the "best" poker books I've read is Daniel Negreanu's because it doesn't tell you what to do, it gives you a general outlook of certain situations where you can incorporate your own game.

The strategy advice is pithy and prioritized, but brief. A lot of padding in the form of thick, glossy pages and photos of Chan in action. Large illustrations make it easy to follow the hand examples. This book is most appropriate for people who want to have fun and reduce losses. Serious players might read it if it was amongst the magazines in the doctor's office.

When I first started playing poker, I had difficulty whenever someone called my pre-flop raise. An interesting piece of advice from Chan himself was to do a continuation bet; in short, to always bet on the flop if you raised preflop, with the exception being when you flop quads or a straight flush. I had not been doing this, so I employed it and I can safely say that it was a highly effective strategy.

Now, I'm not claiming that this advice is exclusive to Chan, or that he made it up or that it's some big secret, but to a new player just learning and having difficulty, employing this advice and at times against my better judgment revealed that it's very effective, and because I got this advice from Chan, I got this book (years later) because in my eyes, Chan was 1 for 1 on good advice given to me.

At first I was a bit disappointed in that many of the tips and advice I had already learned for myself. However, Chan goes on to give strategies, once again, that I had overlooked. Advice on "second best" hands where you trap yourself is rock solid, as is the advice on mid-range suited connectors. I deliberately and intentionally applied the advice on suited connectors which had been previously contrary to my play style and ended up winning 2 tournaments and numerous additional hands by following his advice. The book paid for itself in one session. I can absolutely guarantee that I would not have won these hands in question without Chan's advice.

Having said that, the book tries to be all things to all games and suffers from not having the depth that Chan is more than capable of exploring. All sections are a minority and are largely unrelated. I have no use for advice on Omaha or 7stud so there goes 44 pages I don't need. I don't play 8 or better stud so there's another 18 pages. People that Johnny has played with and giving shout-outs to doesn't help my game... that's another 28 pages. What to expect at a casino (I already know) that's 9 pages. You get the picture.

In spite of this, the advice on NLHE is short, but sweet. There are a couple of good tips, and they alone have potential to substantially increase your revenue. In the end it hardly matters if 20 pages of solid game improving advice is shorter than 900 pages of solid advice; if your play is improved and it makes you money, then it's worth it.

But rather than to add filler outside of specific playing advice, Chan makes good points about playing when you're winning vs. when you're losing. I'm not talking about tilting, but rather Chan's consideration of factors to your play that you're not aware of, and how to exploit these unknowns even if you don't understand them. I appreciate how Chan is sensitive to the notion of factors that one may not be aware of but can recognize as having impact on play by their results, and how to counter or capitalize on this depending upon how you're affected.

This is a 5 star book, but I give it four stars simply from my own perspective in that I learned everything the book could teach me in my experience, all in one sitting. I know Chan knows a lot more, and could have included a lot more, but for an intermediate player (especially HORSE players), this book has a lot to offer even if too diverse to be elaborate on a single subject.

This is the best beginner/intermediate book that I have seen. It covers all the popular poker games of the day plus general tips on all the games and how to play at a Casino. John also discusses some of the great players he has played against. I must mention the paper is excellent (no cheap stuff here) and the illustrations (photos?) of the cards make it very easy to use. Highly recommended

This a beautifully produced, pricey paperback covering the poker games that Chan plays. Of course, he doesn't just play, he wins big. By my count, he's won ten WSOP events.

The book is something of a scrapbook of poker photos, with strategies on many poker games: basically stud, omaha, both high and high low, as well as limit and no-limit Texas hold'em. He describes his thinking as a hold'em hand progresses -- very useful.

By the way, there is little math in book, so if you're looking for the clearest expression of pot odds, implied odds, look elswhere. (For a book that leads you safely through the odds jungle, see Weighing the Odds in Hold'em Poker by King Yao.)

Remember the list price is $30. The qualiy paper and color photos cost more. In fact, even the hands are shown in color photographs.

This is a worthwhile book with insights from a successful player, covering too many kinds of poker to be the ultimate in-depth guide to any one of them. Yet it scores in readability way above the serious classics by Sklansky, Malmuth and others.

It's not the best first book on poker as it's too advanced for a beginner, but it may well be the best second one.
