So often in Texas hold'em poker, you just don't know where you stand. Do you have the best hand? The worst? Within the great gray area between the stone nuts and a pure bluff it's often hard to tell. But take heart, because in this innovative new poker single, Annie Duke and John Vorhaus dive deep into the murky decision space of the middle zone, show you what it is, how to avoid it, and what to do if, alas, you step in something sticky.
In The Middle Zone, you'll learn...
The middle zone is one of hold'em's most common decision spaces - and one of its most commonly misplayed. But it doesn't have to be that way. Just read and study The Middle Zone and you'll walk away with a simple, reliable strategy for navigating this tricky space effectively on hand after hand, and turning a cloudy poker situation into a clear - and clearly profitable - one instead.

Yes, I listen to it often...about once a week
poker strategy books
Annie Duke talks too fast and needs to slow down. Fortunately I can slow it down on the player, but it sounds funny. Also, whereas I know Duke is a pro and appreciate her knowledge (I do listen to this over and over as it is great information), I find her delivery tone to be a little snarky/uppity and it kind of rubs me the wrong way.
Annie Duke is the bomb!!!!! Entertaining as well as enlightening. Listen to all her books.
I have read a ton of poker books. Annie's book Decide to Play Great Poker may be the best. Looking forward to more singles like this.
"Very happy with this purchase"

"Middle Zone gets overlooked sometimes"
Yes, to anyone who seriously wants to improve their poker game. Like her or not, Annie Duke has an intelligent perspective on the game.
It focuses on one particular part of the game and gets into great detail, convincingly.
I have and I find her very listenable.
No, it has a lot of info, although not very lengthy.
"Perfect Poker Short"
I read and listen to a lot of poker books. This is a must have for people who want to become more profitable players.
