Reader's Thoughts


Lot of good information about abstract concepts like M and Q inflection points and making moves. The pages flew by with good tips and problems.

Glen Demers

This book, along with Vol. 1, are the best books for introducing you to Texas Hold 'em tournament play.

Tim Brennan

A must read for any serious poker player.


The next time I lose a no-limit hold'em tournament, it will not be Dan Harrington's fault.

Tony Bake

Best book set on Holdem Tournaments that I have read. Would recommend to anyone wanting to better understand the game.

Christoph Weber



The examples and problems in this book are very instructive and represent actual play. Harrington explains not only the various possibilities at each point, but the many considerations that go into each decision. Particularly useful are the many examples of how your play needs to change drastically in late stages of a tournament, heads-up play, or when stacks get short. A valuable resource, definitely recommended.


I loved all of Harrington's books. They read like textbooks and they have problems for solving. I learned more from this series than from any other poker book. I reread them from time to time for a refresher. . . I should probably do that again.

I somehow got a pre-order copy of this before the SA poker guys did, quickly went through it and thought it was great...then a poker superstar (probably Adar) got to it and tore it to pieces.I liked the book, but I'm a complete amateur...and if an expert gives it the ol' super-slam, I don't know how comfortable I am with recommending it.


Awesome book, take your poker game to another level.


I read something like this on a poker blog [http://hammerplayer.blogspot.com/] recently and I agree: If you haven't read this book I am a better multi-table tournament player than you are. It's that simple.

Raphael Clayette

Very interesting. Loved the inflexion points.


Easily compares against the likes of Moby Dick, The Heart of Darkness, Catch-22, and One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest as one of the best and most important bits of literature written in the last 200 years.


As the glowing reviews here suggest, this series is a standout among the glut of indistinguishable poker guides. Much better than Helmuth's book and more current than Super System, it's the place to go after you've mastered the basics. Harrington's concepts are so enlightening and unique, they should almost be proprietary. If you're just a person looking to improve your home game, this is probably too much work to bother. But if you're serious about increasing your win rate (and take home cash) in semi-pro tournaments, this is the end all be all of poker guides.


Very informative, especially the problems/examples, and the chapters on final table and heads up strategy. Builds very nicely on the first volume. I highly recommend both volumes. I am starting on the volume 3 which is a workbook of problems and so far it looks like a great way to test what you learned from the first 2 books.
