Truth is, most books have at least some information that is useful to a player that is trying to improve their game. Here are a few that i could have done without: 1. Powerful Profits from Tournament Poker by Victor H. Royer This book is all text and is unreadable. There are no spaces between paragraphs and it reads like an essay that is based on opinion. I got it free and it's not even worth giving away. All the information is probably in other books. Actually, maybe it has some good information but it is completely unreadable so I never really read it. 2. The Real Deal If you're a Super novice, then try reading this, but overall it seemed to have such elementary knowledge that it isn't worth the time.
