    A great mix of theory, toy problems, and applications; stands out among poker books for its effectiveness in quizzing the reading to make information and concepts stick. Rewards both high-engagement (solving every problem) and low-engagement reading. As someone who didn't necessarily think deeply about balancing ranges in spots past preflop, I took a lot from the book & have already felt my thought process changing.

    Excellent read, explaining the concepts of game theory in poker. Brokos uses simplified examples to clarify the strategies and then debates the knowledge gained into typical poker situations. Polarised vs condensed range was news to me, poker simply serms like a different game due to GTO, and Brokos explains why.

    Best poker book for advanced players. It could have used more example hands at the end.
