Kaizen of Poker, by Sheree Bykofsky, ECW Press

The Kaizen of Poker: How to Continuously Improve Your Hold’em Game

Bykofsky, Sheree

  • Whatever your poker level — beginning, intermediate, or expert — you can always improve!

    In The Kaizen of Poker, Sheree Bykofsky will help you take your game to the next level — and to the level after that. By learning how to identify and focus on the skills and strategies you need to improve most, you will find yourself raking in more pots and leaving the game a winner far more often. Do you play too many hands? Bluff too little or ineffectively? Not know how to read the other players’ strategies and cards? Take the “Morning After Challenge” and start outplaying the opponents you want to emulate. Expanding on Secrets the Pros Won’t Tell You About Winning Hold’Em Poker by Lou Krieger and Sheree Bykofsky, here she takes the Japanese concept of “Kaizen” — continuous improvement — and applies it to the card game we all love best.
