Those who read and study this book will literally leave behind those who don't, and most serious players wear the covers off their copies. In many ways, this is probably the best book ever written on poker. By David Sklansky.

The ideas discussed include play on the first two cards, semibluffing, the free card, inducing bluffs, being beat on the river, staying with a draw, playing when a pair flops, playing trash hands, fourth-street play, playing in loose games, playing in short-handed games, and much more.
