The world's leading poker book publisher


Advanced Limit Hold’em Strategy is a revolutionary book. Top limit hold’em players have techniques that have never been fully explained… until now.

Barry Tanenbaum has played winning middle limit hold’em for over twenty years, and has been a full time professional for six. One of America’s top poker coaches, he fully understands these techniques and, in this book, he explains them.

Barry breaks advanced techniques into fundamental factors with clear instructions on how you can implement them to make much better decisions.

Advanced Limit Hold’em Strategy includes:

  • An examination of the techniques used by top players to create confusion and score extra profit.
  • An analysis of ‘card-independent’ strategies explains how to analyze all of the situational factors before you even consider your cards.
  • A comprehensive coverage of blind play.

In complex situations, many authors will simply tell you, it depends. As a professional player and coach, Barry tells you what it depends on, and what to do about it. This is not a book for beginners, but if you already play and want to understand advanced plays that win more money, this book will tell you how.

Barry is a noted Card Player columnist, having written over 60 columns and has been a featured speaker at three consecutive World Poker Player Conferences.

Barry is not only a top-notch player, he’s an articulate, clear, and often droll writer, so his book is instructional and fun to read….
…Advanced Limit Hold’em Strategy also covers topics that I haven’t seen in any other text, such as playing hands from the blinds, dealing with blind steals, blind vs. blind play, etc. Many of us find ourselves lost in those situations, where two people are fighting over a pot but neither has much of anything. This book gives concrete guidance on how to win more than your share of those contests.

Advanced Limit Hold’Em Strategy is a terrific book. More clearly than any other book I’ve read on limit hold’em, it provides insight into the mindset and approach of a serious professional. What does a 40-80 professional do that a 6-12 grinder playing solid ABC poker doesn’t? This book will show you.

I cannot imagine that a decent playing reader won’t recoup his or her investment in Advanced Limit Hold Em Strategies many times over.

This is a very good book filled with excellent analyses of how to play and win in middle limit hold’em games and beyond. I expect those who are trying to move up the limit hold’em ladder will gain a great deal from this book, I know I did. Consequently, I strongly recommend it for those who play in these games or are looking to do so. This is one of the better strategic poker books I’ve read in quite a while.

Tanenbaum’s advice is clearly communicated, carefully thought out, and incisive. I believe his analyses of these poker situations are very strong, and he often discusses aspects to hands that did not immediately occur to me. His strategic advice is liberally sprinkled with examples that are perfectly constructed to elaborate on the points he makes. In so many places he provides so much good advice, that I expect that multiple readings will prove necessary for most poker players to extract everything that Tanenbaum has to teach.
As a whole, Advanced Limit Hold’em Strategy more than lives up to its title.

I have not read it fully but my advice based on what I have read is……….
DO NOT BUY IT !!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! !!!
I strongly believe this book could SERIOUSLY IMPROVE the game of many a Limit Hold’em player.

As such I would like to keep the knowledge gained from it to myself.

With its many helpful lessons and careful, clear presentation of difficult concepts, Advanced Limit Hold ‘em Strategy deserves a place alongside other must-have books for the serious poker player.
