Annie Duke Book “Decide to Play Great Poker”

Champion poker pro Annie Duke reported on her Twitter page Monday that her new book “Decide to Play Great Poker: A Strategy Guide to No-Limit Texas Hold Em” was now ahead of Doyle Brunson’s uber popular “Super System”. 

Ms. Duke was fast to pay homage to her poker icon.

Pretty proud to be ahead of my idol @TexDolly's Super System. First poker book I ever read and still the most important book I ever read.

Duke took part in a book signing this holiday weekend in Las Vegas. 

A description of the book went as follows:

Ask any great poker player how he'd play a hand and he'll always say, 'It depends.' Though that can be an infuriating response, the truth is, it really does depend. The key to becoming a great poker player is in knowing on what it depends. Decide to Play Great Poker teaches you to think strategically so you can identify the dependent factors behind every decision in every hand. Poker is a game of numerous variables: table position, flop texture, bet sizing, pocket holdings, players in a hand, personalities of the players, and so much more. Decide to Play Great Poker will teach you how to identify and analyze these variables, interchange them within basic game-situation templates, and leave you feeling knowledgeable, comfortable, and confident in any poker situation. Instead of just enumerating rules that work only some of the time, this book will teach you how to become a great poker thinker and strategist, so you can expertly navigate any new poker challenge that comes up. Most players think the goal of poker is to make money, but that's not correct. The goal of poker is to make good decisions. Money is simply the way you measure how well you're fulfilling that objective. Are you ready to start making world-class decisions at the poker table, as well as reap the substantial rewards that those decisions yield? All you have to do is decide: Decide to Play Great Poker now.
