How did you get a free copy?

Did the cover

You "did" the cover? You had sex with the cover? Dirty prairie dog.

Sorry, could not resist. Seriously, I will have to go to Amazon and see if they show it.

Okay, I have been to Amazon and I did not really like the cover. Seemed excessively wordy.

If you're talking about the Table of Contents on the front cover, that had nothing to do with me. When I turned it in it didn't have a TOC or the pile of chips on it. It was pretty much an orange version of the one I posted.

What does LDO mean?

Yes, I am talking about the TOC being on the front cover. Since you did not do that, your part of the cover I liked.

Thanks. The TOC doesn't do anything for it aesthetically, but if it helps serve the function of selling books then hey, whatever. It's not like we're talking about the Mona Lisa here.

And LDO means, "Like Duh, Obviously"

Sorry for getting away from the book and into cover design, but I think a badly designed cover (which most with TOCs on the cover are, imo) can really detract from sales.

Hopefully, people will be able to look beyond the cover to discover the gold inside.

Only Mason knows. I have no idea what sells these things, I just know they can't be really dark.

Getting back to the book itself now that I finished it, I'd say it's about what it's supposed to be: an updated, expanded, and improved version of the original. 1st time readers will benefit most, people who have the old version and liked it would probably find this worthwhile. If you thought the first version sucked and have read NLHETAP plus everything on NLHE tourneys, you probably won't care for this.

As I don't have the original, I am really looking forward to it. Too bad that I am a American player or I would use the 5 book deal to get this, Harrington's present books, and Professional No Limit Volumes 1 and 2.

I have also had sex with these covers.

If you play tournaments, Harringtons are very good, TPFAP, Snyder's Poker Tournament Formula, and Moshman's SNG book will help also.

PNL1 is pretty good, but that's for cash.

Good job on the cover for PNL1 and so cannot wait to see the cover for PNL2.
