It usually takes five to ten days for the books to begin to appear in the major chain stores. We have orders and are in the process of filling them now.

Best wishes,
Mason

I'm still reading this new edition free copy arrived today FTW), but I just love this Sklansky quote on page 242 (regarding a Gap Concept matter):

"This is pure math and not open to debate."

Good stuff right there.

My early impression is that it's written in sort of a mixed fashion. While some of it is similar to NLHE:TAP as a collection of general concepts, then you've got a new NLHE quiz and hand charts thrown in there.

Fair warning to players with the 1st version: this book is what it is - an expanded version of the original TPFAP. Don't buy this expecting a whole new book, you'll be disappointed. Even with the NLHE material and updates, longtime 2+2 readers will see a lot of familiar material. The S-C numbers from NLHETAP have re-appeared, for example.

Still, there are a lot of good tuneups throughout the book and the improvements will be great for 1st time readers and cash-only players trying to expand. Any modern poker tournament book should cover NHLE with more depth than the other games, since that's really what most tourneys are.

Since you mention the SC numbers, I wonder if "The System" got improved?

Did the cover

Edit: Which was tried in several colors, btw, but Mason didn't have anything in orange so we made it orange. For the record Mrs. Gonso and I preferred blue.

Yes, there's actually a small sub-chapter called "Improving the System." It seems solid on the surface, at least for the purpose of providing a noob with an easy to learn and quick tourney strategy. In particular, Sklansky notes a couple of "obvious" problems with the original System and makes the needed tweaks. This area won't be of interest to anyone with any real playing experience anyway so most 2+2'rs won't care.
