Love poker but looking for a change from endless No-Limit Hold'em?
Take up mixed games!
Mixed games are becoming more and more popular. The World Series of Poker features events such as Omaha 8-or-Better, Deuce to Seven Triple Draw, Razz, Stud High and Stud 8-or-Better - all of which are covered in detail in this book. There are also formats such as Dealer's Choice, H.O.R.S.E., and 8-game, which require expertise in many of these games.
Dylan Linde is a professional poker player and mixed games expert. In Mastering Mixed Games he gives a thorough introduction to each variant, explaining the rules and basic strategy before moving on to discuss advanced concepts. With this audiobook you will specifically learn:
- solid pre-flop ranges and hand strategies

Ce que les membres d'Audible en pensent
Content is great but not optimal for audiobook
I think the author is super knowledgeable about the topic and the content is great and well organized. Unfortunately this book is not well suited to the audio book format. Listing off numerous hand ranges and equities is impossible to follow without being able to look at the charts the author must be reading aloud. It's impossible to follow the action on the turn in a multiway Omaha pot when the author read the hole cards 3 minutes earlier and you have no easy way to refer back. This is no criticism of the content or the author's delivery, it's just that the content was not designed for this medium. It would be amazing if the author provided the charts and example hands as a supplement to audiobook purchasers so we could follow along while listening. I would have given 5 stars with this addition.
