  Book Description Publication Date: December 6, 2011 Hand reading is the single most important no-limit hold’em skill. If you can figure out what hands your opponents are likely to have, you will make consistently good decisions. You’ll find bluffs other players miss. You’ll find value bets other players miss. And you’ll also be able to anticipate and avoid trouble before you’re knee-deep in it. Some people say hand reading is a “feel” skill. That you can only learn it through experience. They’re wrong. Not that experience isn’t vital. It is. But if you think that you’re just going to figure it all out by playing hours and hours of hold’em, you’re likely mistaken. The learning curve is very steep. That’s the bad news. The good news is that How To Read Hands At No-Limit Hold'em can leapfro...

 This book aims to marry "The Psychology of Poker" by Schoonmaker, with Caro's Book of Poker Tells. The overriding theme is that Caro's Tells have to be interpreted in terms of the personality of the person making the tell and the specific circumstance when the suspected tell is being made. The author presents six personality types, that corresponds to Schoonmaker's matrix of Tight/Loose and Passive/Aggressive play. The difference is that McKenna bases it on personality type, instead of Poker play. However, he shows that the latter is a reflection of the former, so both systems are analogous. (McKenna comes up with six types because he distinguishes between extreme Loose/Aggressive (which he terms "Party Hardy", instead of Maniac) and a less extreme form that he terms "High Roller". Likewise, the extreme form of Tight/Passive he associates with a Lon...
