Strategy/Odds books on Hold 'em?

Anyone recommend some good books to improve my Texas Hold 'Em game? I'm a newbie, and played my first tournie last night. Didn't do too bad though. Made it more than 1/2 way...

Winning Low Limit Hold'em by Lee Jones is brilliant

Thank you, sir.

Actually, both.

Super System

Depends on what you want to work on, Hold'em in general, limit games, tournaments, etc.

Based on the recommendations of this forum my first book was Winning Low Limit Hold'em by Lee Jones and I'm VERY glad that it was. It's a small book that packs a lot of good information in it. I feel that the Lee Jones book really set me up with a great foundation to build upon. However, it is geared towards limit play.

For NL tournament play I picked up Dan Harrington's book (again based on recommendations) and again I was very happy with it. In fact I can't wait for the second book of the series to come out.

However, I was still having trouble with the very loose home games that I usually play in. For that people recommended Small Stakes Hold'em which is all about adjusting to loose games. I picked it up and was able to see results very quickly.

I've read other books that I found at the library, but I own the above three books and I continually re-read them and learn something new every time I do.

That being said, that's just my opinion and I haven't read nearly as much as other people on here have. So you might want to wait for some of the better forum players to recommend good books

Great info, thanks!

I picked up Lee Jones' book of Friday, and ordered
"Hold'em Poker" by David Sklansky from Amazon. I'll have to check out Dan Harrington's book too.
