Harrington on Hold'em Volume 2: The Endgame, Written by Dan Harrington and Bill Robertie
This is the second of Dan Harrington’s and Bill Robertie’s two books about No Limit Texas Hold’em tournaments. Volume II actually takes over where volume I left of, and in this part the later stages of poker tournaments are in focus. Harrington goes through the critical endgame of a No-Limit Hold'em tournament in a way that it’s never been done before. Many (in my mind) revolutionizing concepts are presented and Harrington is always able to back up his ideas. For example, he thoroughly describes how the relation between the size of your chips stack and the size of the antes/blinds should influence your game.
The book is extremely rich in detail, but it’s still an enjoyable read (I had no idea Mr. Harrington could be this funny), and very pedagogical. At the end of every section there is a part called “The Problems”. The reader gets to go through a number of scenarios which illustrate the concepts described in the different chapters. Many times, these kinds of things are rather pointless, but I actually found “The Problems” very useful.
In summary, this book is packed with extremely valuable Texas Hold’em advice. As I wrote about volume I, no striving Texas Hold’em player can do without this book.
