I would also read Largay's book.

Not a book but Slotboom's DVD is also good for making the jump from Limit to no limit.

That is if you insist on a book, truth of the matter is, that there are no really good books. (PNL is a decent book, but it only deals with pot to stack considerations and not much else)

But there is a limit to NL forum here

And then there is the uNL forum

PNL v1 is not by itself a full cash book, any more than Harrington v1 is. And when people refer to "Harrington" they're generally referring to vols 1 and 2 together (not necessarily including vol 3). I'm giving the PNL authors benefit of the doubt but for a first half of a book it's got some really good stuff in it.

Largay is more complete in the sense that we're not waiting for v2 to add more info, but it certainly is not a "complete course" for NL as the subtitle suggests, and as I mentioned in my review of the book.

Bottom line - there really isn't a book out yet that is both good and complete. However I think that between Sklansky/Miller, Largay, and PNL 1&2 you should have a good basis.

Well, if he's just looking for starters, there's a really good intro article on Ed Miller's site that he can look at for free. If my local buddies just did the basic stuff in that article, I might not make any more money off them.

I have PNL and Largay's book. I have read most of PNL and yes there is quite a bit of information that seems to revolve around pot-stack sizes so far. Good stuff all the same. I haven't opened Largay's book yet, but what do you think it has to offer that PNL doesn't? Also, would you happen to have the link for the info mentioned on Ed Miller's site? Thanks!
