Default New book on ring games

Antonio Esfandiari has written a book called "In the Money", and it is out now. Most poker books feature tournament strategy and other tournament aspects, but this is a book focused soley on cash game play.

According to a review I read, the co-author on the book really helped to tone down some of Antonio's style. I don't know if you've read anything he's written before, but he has a tendency to come off as an elitist jerk. He does know his stuff though, so there should be some good info in the book. I haven't read it yet, but here's a quote from the review I read -

Quote:
What makes the book a bit difficult is actually what makes cash game poker the difficult world that it is. Because ring games are often an ever changing conflagration, trying to devise a strategy for them is difficult as well. "In The Money" doesn't lay out a distinct strategy for this very same reason. It does, however, give a very good demonstration of the tactics and thoughts that can be implemented at the tables, which will give many a leg up on becoming a success in such a volatile surrounding.

co-author is Jennifer Harman i think

although it's quite funny cuz jennifer harman was pretty bad in the High-Stakes Poker on TV

anyways,

it seems that in Amazon.co.uk, they only have the one with Jennifer on the cover with the author written as Jennifer Harman. no mention of Esfandiari in the cover.
though in amazon.com, it's only the Esfandiari one
