I have read posts about Tommy Angelo in the past, but never really thought twice about him. Most of the posts were about his book and the unconventional aspects of his thinking. I never made it much past that when reading blog posts about him. I always such assumed his book would be something along the line of don't tilt, play your "A" game, know when to stop playing, be aware of your surroundings, don't play while drinking, play within your bankroll, don't do other things while playing, etc, etc. Basically, I thought his book was just going to reiterate the things that most of us know to do (or don't do) but don't always do (or don't do). I didn't have an open mind and just felt like it was another poker player trying to take an angle to sell his book. It sounded like it was going to be similar to Barry Greenstein's book - Ace on a River.

My thinking changed about 2 weeks ago when I listened to Bart Hanson interviewing him on the Deuce Plays podcast (Part 1). Some of the things that he was saying seemed to really apply to my game and leaks associated with my game. I couldn't get enough of what he had to say and immediately downloaded and listened to Part 2 of the interview followed by the 2+2 podcast interview with him a few months ago. All excellent stuff!!

I ordered his book off Amazon and it should be here today or Monday. I'm guessing I will get more out of his book than I have out of any other poker book.

Definitely more posts to follow on the topic.................

  1. His book is unlike other poker books. I like his angle on a lot of stuff. You will enjoy it.

  2. Interested to hear your thoughts. I had a similar impression as you did before starting his book, but I am proud to say I quickly became one of the converted.

  3. Another Angelo fan here. He also appeared on the Two Plus Two Pokercast back in Aug. 2008 (Episode 36) -- another good interview there.

    By the way, I noticed today that the Mediocre Poker Radio Show turns up in iTunes when you search for it, if you hadn't seen that.

    Thanks - I think that I actually picked that up from your blog.
