Playing poker since the age of 10, King Yao quite his job as a derivatives trader to play poker and other gambling games professionally. He uses the skills he acquired in trading equity options, equity index options, currency options, commodity options, and mortgage derivatives to playing Limit Hold'em. He has distilled his experience and expertise in Weighing The Odds In Hold'em Poker showing players how to identify and attack different player personalities; the basics of "Expected Value" in poker; explains the outs, non-outs, unknown cards, and how to count outs in poker; how to figure out pot odds quickly and accurately at the table; and how different positions have different values. Readers will also learn when and against whom to raise for free cards; when to bluff and how to induce our opponents to bluff; the importance and value of semi-bluffing at the right time; and just when to use these deceptive strategies. There are chapters dedicated to starting hands, the Flop, the Turn, and the River. Serious students of the game will appreciate what King Yao has to share about how shorthanded Hold'em differs from a full game; how to avoid mistakes and adjust correctly; and how poker on the Internet differs from face-to-face "brick-and-mortar" poker. An ideal and highly recommended course of instruction for the novice, Weighing The Odds In Hold'em Poker has much of value for even the more experienced Hold'em player.
