Internet poker has taken over the poker world. While 20 years ago there was no such thing as Internet poker, today there are more Internet poker professionals than live poker pros. Due to the large pool of players and non-existent overhead, the temptation of the Internet game is too great for most pros to resist. It’s a popular choice for amateurs too. Those with busy schedules can enjoy poker action from their living room and not worry about how to get to a live casino.
John Vorhaus has been promoting his “Killer Poker” strategy for years, and finally brings it to the online game with his work, “Killer Poker Online: Crushing the Internet Game” For those looking for an edge in their Internet battles, this is a great addition to the library. Vorhaus wisely opens his book by asking the reader what he is hoping to get out of Internet poker. Are you looking for fun? To challenge yourself? To make money?
While playing great poker may help you achieve all these goals, knowing where you are coming from will allow you to identify the particular challenges and obstacles you will face along the way. The first section of the book deals with the “true facts” of poker, mainly that most players lose not because they are unlucky or being cheated, but because they are impatient, undisciplined, or just plain bored.
He stresses that to be in the winning minority you are going to have to put in the work and that this book will help you do that. It does help, with a systematic breakdown of everything you need to know about online poker. From money management to data management to mood management to mind management, the middle of this book is complete with comprehensive sections on how to handle yourself in the online poker world.
Once Vorhaus has given you an idea of what you need to do to be successful, he enhances the information by including some typical online pitfalls you may encounter as well as some tips for taking advantage of the pitfalls your opponents may be prone to fall into. Whether you are a fan of Vorhaus from his other Killer Poker books or seminars or are simply looking to improve your Internet game, you should check out Killer Poker Online. As they say, with the proper application of the book’s principles, it should pay for itself in no time.
