Book Review: Reading Poker Tells by Zachary Ellwood
by Andrew Brokos | Published: Jan 22, '13
Several weeks after his appearance on The Thinking Poker Podcast, I finally got around to publishing my review of Zachary Ellwood’s Reading Poker Tells. In short, it’s one of the most helpful poker books I’ve read.
Ellwood covers his subject clearly and thoroughly, and his book is well-organized and easy for a player of any ability level to follow. The material isn’t earth-shattering, so if you already consider yourself adept at reading your opponents, you might not have a lot to gain. For relatively inexperienced live players like myself, though, there’s no better resource for learning to decipher your opponents’ behavior.
