Hi. Thanks for the kind words. Organization and language is always a challenge when writing a comprehensive book like ours. Should we write chapters with identical headings, one for more elementary players (it is not a beginners book, and does not, for example, discuss how to post blinds) and one for more advanced ones?

We decided instead to write one chapter and identify by various means the advanced material. The hand charts, for example, have two lines, one for basic players and one for more advanced ones. The chapters also identify advanced plays.

I know it is not prefect, but I beleive even 2+2'ers will gain something of value to add to their arsenal for short-handed play.

Barry,

Having played with you almost every time I've visited Las Vegas, I very much look forward to this book. I'm sure it will be worthwhile.

Jeff
