From the Author
I wrote this version of Internet Texas Hold’em back in 2002 and 2003 right at the beginning of the poker boom. It became an immediate success and to this day is the most successful online poker book of all-time. My follow-up to this book was Texas Hold’em Odds and Probabilities, which goes into further details of some of the concepts first introduced in Internet Texas Hold’em. This was followed up by The Poker Mindset, which aims to help players manage tilt while playing.
In 2009, I released Internet Texas Hold’em New Expanded Edition which was updated to reflect changes in the game that have occurred over the last several years:
- Updated starting hand charts
- Two new chapters for short-handed games
- One new chapter discussing multi-way pots in loose games
- 50 new hand examples
Good luck and I hope you enjoy the book. Matthew
