Way of the Poker Warrior
Last updated on 2015-01-28
About the Book
Comprised of three sections - training, combat, and conduct - and containing 29 hand examples, Way of the Poker Warrior was author Paul Christopher Hoppe's first published book. Rereleased here as a lean publication, it contains the same insight and analysis that made Hoppe (a.k.a. GiantBuddha) an authority in online Limit Holdem circles and a winner in all variants of poker.
The book has helped hundreds of players improve their poker results and enjoyment of the game, and now it can help you, too.
Way of the Poker Warrior is a brilliant reminder on how to recapture the enthusiasm for learning poker wisdom that we all had when we started playing the game.
