This looks like a great book from Steve Forte, especially for anyone that doesn't want to spend $200 on his Casino Game Protection book for the poker related information. I'd love to read a few reviews if anyone decides to purchase this book, as I am curious how it relates to his other material.

I'm ordering a copy tomorrow...will let you know how it compares to the Casino Game Protection Book. I hope it is not like other sequels where there is a lot of repetition with little new substance....

I'll let you know....I want it for my library anyway.

Like the old saying says "a little knowledge is dangerous"....some people feel that because they read a book, that they feel more secure and protected.

These people who feel protected and think that "they know" are actually more exposed, than those who are ignorant because they can be over-confident.

It is very rare for books to talk about the psychology of hustling which carries even known moves (seconds, bottoms, stacks, false shuffles, marked cards, etc.) to the next level of deception.

Steve is one of my teachers and for the record he's true to the game as well.

I proofed 2 early drafts of the book for Steve.

Suffice to say, it's great. Loaded with information and he tips a few things that have not been in print before, as well as providing better coverage for a few items that have been discussed previously, just not very thoroughly.

If you're thinking about jagging a copy, don't wait: 40% of stock has sold in the first 5 days...

Wow. It looks like I should probably hurry and make a decision. The question now is if I should purchase Poker Protection, Casino Game Protection, or both? Hmm...

Daniel,

Are you by any chance in the ANG at Greeley?

Just curious,

Jason

PS: Both books are excellent, and will be collector's items in the very near future.
