Roy Cooke and John Bond s CardPlayer Magazine column is the longest running poker feature in the world. This, their sixth book, is a continuation of their Real Poker II: The Play of Hands and a companion volume to their last book, How to Think Like a Poker Pro (both titles are also available from Amazon.com). It contains all their CardPlayer Magazine Play of Hand columns from 2000- 2006, edited and updated. Each essay takes you through a professional s thought process in the play of a hand, how to really analyze each decision to make or save the most at the poker table.
Roy Cooke is one of the only poker writers I find worth reading. Doyle Brunson
Roy Cooke s writing is the best limit hold em adivce anywhere. In fact, I learned more from reading Roy s articles in CardPlayer on limit hold em than any other source. He does a masterful job of walking you through a hand and teaches you the right way to think about a poker hand. Daniel Negreanu, 2003 Player of the Year
Roy Cooke has made a living and built a life as a successful poker pro for ten years longer than I ve been alive. And some of my earliest poker was playing in John Bond s private Florida game, where people came for his stories as well as his action. What John and Roy have to say about the game is worth reading! Michael Grinder Mizrachi, multiple WPT winner and CardPlayer Magazine 2006 Player of the Year
I Like Roy Cooke. I like his writing. I like his poker. He s a smart, honest guy in a world that has too many shady wannabes... Chris Jesus Ferguson, 2000 WSOP Champion
