Abridged Audiobook

Duration: 3 hours 30 minutes


Phil Gordon plays poker with the best players in the world. He has won -- and lost -- in tournaments and cash games around the globe, all the while studying the game and learning from every hand dealt. As the resident expert and co-host of "Celebrity Poker Showdown," Phil has quickly become one of the most sought-after teachers of No Limit Texas Hold'em.

After fifteen years of keeping notes on the things he's learned, the greats he's played with, and the celebrities he's taught, Phil Gordon has poured every single thing he knows about No Limit Texas Hold'em into this little green book. Taking a page from Harvey Penick's bestselling book of golf wisdom, Phil plays the role of both teacher and student, offering up insightful tips on how to think about poker and how to develop a singular style of play. He breaks down the game into enlightening instructional tidbits and illustrative anecdotes that inspire the kind of persistence and motivation necessary to improve your game.

Sure to rank with Doyle Brunson's "Super System," and David Sklansky's "The Theory of Poker, Phil Gordon's Little Green Book" deserves a spot on the shelf of every serious student of the game.

    This is not for beginners. I returned it without finishing it because the author provides no basics to get the reader started. At least he is honest is saying it is not for beginners.
