The Psychology Of Poker: Best Book To Build Winning Strategy

Alan N. Schoonmaker, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Schoonmaker is a retired psychologist who now spends his time in Las Vegas playing low-stakes games. What makes him unique is that he is one of the greatest listeners I've ever met. That, I believe, tells a lot about this author and his beliefs.

When I see Dr. Schoonmaker in Las Vegas now, he's always chatting with other people, but more importantly, he's always listening when they're talking about poker. That lifetime of knowledge — from his days as a psychologist to his evenings at the poker table — was sifted and ultimately put into words in The Psychology of Poker and its follow-up, Your Worst Poker Enemy: Mastering the Mental Game, published in 2007.

The Making Of A Poker Player By Matt Matros: Best Book To Build Winning Strategy

This is an odd poker book, but one that has stood the test of time. Author Matt Matros began playing recreational poker games in the Washington, DC area shortly after graduating from college (when I first met him – that experience is told in the book).

A year later, he was at the final table of the Event of Champions, a million-dollar tournament. This book serves as a kind of forewarning. Long before he achieved any personal or professional success (some would argue "validation") as a player, Matros wrote about the game and highlighted many of the peripheral effects it had on him as an enthusiastic young upstart.

Matros went on to win three World Series of Poker gold bracelets in three years after the publication of this book, two of which were in the game he mainly writes about, limit hold'em. He just plays poker part-time, which is incredible. The majority of writers become famous after winning large events and then writing poker books. Matros, who was overconfident, did the exact opposite. That takes a lot of courage.
