I'm not sure poker literature publishers think so much in terms of home country. It's like scientific publishing. You publish for the world. And, yes, we need more LHE books ... LOTS more. /Smurf

Most of the world seems to play NL more than Limit, ( unfortunately [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img])...and a small publishing company needs to convert its books into sales/cash quickly, i would have thought that would be more likely to do that with books on NL (at least in europe).

Secondly, distribution costs in a home market should be lower than exporting directly to overseas ones.

Furthermore, i think there are good books on Limit HE already in the market, while there is probably a bigger gap in the NLHE market.

I am not complaining because my main game is limit and i am really enjoying the 2 new books...

You may be right, but D&B may be figuring that good limit books sell better than bad NL books and with Byron Jacobs deeply involved in the company - a limidonk like us - he can check the quality of the writing; a case of 'we publish what we know something about.' Who knows? It's nice anyway.

Cheers,

Smurf

Yeah .... I'm fine [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]


Btw .. I'm a nolimidonk, even if I dabble in limit once in a while (formerly heavily into donk'n'goes), make no mistake about it


But good books are rare ... and dandb have published a few I like.

I am looking forward to reading Byron Jacobs' new book: "How good is your limit hold'em 2". Unfortunately, it is not available on amazon.com or amazon.co.uk. The release dates given by amazon and the d&b website have already passed.

Does anyone kwow when this book will be released?

Glad you liked the first one. Number 2 (concentrating on short-handed, very short-handed and HU play) is about 2/3 written but will not be out before about July/Aug next year. We have had endless problems with distribution in the US and this has slowed down our schedule. By the way we are not focussing purely on limit - we have books on NL cash, sit'n'gos and short-handed PLO in production. All these will be out next year.

Hi Byron, this is good news.

As for the "How Good is Your?" series, will you be adding a NLH version? It would kind of round things up as there are obviously limit and pot limit versions.
