Default How good is your limit hold\'em 2; when will it be released?

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.

i dont think it is out yet...i havent seen it anywhere. last thing i heard was that it was delayed. Also i havent heard a new release date for the sampson limit book by D&B either.

I was wondering if it was a cashflow thing as they have probably spent a lot of time and resources releasing the short handed book, and the Tanenbaum advanced book. For a relatively new company i would have thought 4 books being released at roughly the same time would be a stretch financially.

I think they often check this forum so hopefully they will be able to give us an idea of the new expected release dates.

Thank you for your reply.

I see that on the d&b site they now mention the same date:

US Jun 2008 / Europe Jul 2008
for "How Good is Your Limit Hold’em, 2"

US Mar 2008 / Europe Apr 2008
for "Secrets of Professional Limit Hold’em: Learn how the pros think" from Sampson

He picked out a lot of obscure situations that required good critical "poker thinking" skills to analyze the correct course of action.

I'm surprised that so much of their catalogue is focused on limit holdem, but not disappointed.

Given they are based in the uk, i would have thought that they would have had more stuff on NL tournaments and cashplay,and a little bit more on PLO. I dont think there are many places that run regular live limit holdem games here, wheras there are lots of NL games being played. I would imagine that the uk based NL online players outnumber the uk based limit ones too.

Perhaps its easier / quicker to write limit holdem books.

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

PS: Lots more!
