Harrington on Hold ’em , Vol. 1: Strategic Play by Dan Harrington

When Dan Harrington came out with his three volumes of poker books exploring the infinitely detailed world of Texas Holdem, many felt that there was at last an answer to the books that, previously, held sway as the ultimate authority on the subject, Doyle Brunson’s Super System. Well, Dan is at it again, but this time focusing on tournament play with the first volume of a new series: Harrington on Hold ’em Expert Strategy for No Limit Tournaments, Vol. 1: Strategic Play.

A lengthy title, but one that very accurately describes this paperback book that weighs in at 381 pages and retails for around $30. Put out once again by Two Plus Two Publishing, this book kicks off the set published in 2004, covering topics such as continuation bets, standard probing bets, the Gap Concept, and more. Coauthored by Bill Robertie, Expert Strategy for No Limit Tournaments is a comprehensive treatment of No limit Holdem in a book form, addressing the relative merits of various styles of betting and play, and even letting readers in on a secret, “Action” Dan Harrington is not as conservative as one would think.

For the poker player looking to study the field of No Limit Holdem Tournament play, this is the right starting point. The book is laid out in a way that makes sense as an instructional tome, and anyone who benefits from this book will certainly want to pick up the second in the series as well.
