Texas Hold’em is the most popular poker game across North America and Europe. Hold’em’s popularity surged in the early 2000s due to its exposure on television and on the internet. The no-limit betting form is used on the now widely televised World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour. Because each player only starts with two cards and the remaining cards are shared, Hold’em is highly opportune for strategic and mathematical analysis. Swayne’s Advanced Degree in Hold’em contains the results of years of study and application of the psychological and mathematical aspects of Texas Hold’em. Much of what is presented has never been published before. It is more of a university textbook than the traditional poker book. This is a book for the serious poker player or for one who wants to become world class.
