First off, we at 2+2 want to thank all the people at South Point Poker who helped to make our yearly party a big success. We also want to thank Jay Rosenkranz for bringing the movie Bet Raise Fold which was shown just before the party began. Again, it was a terrific time and we hope to be back at South Point next year.
I also want to mention again that our latest book, Applications of No‑Limit Hold ’em; A Guide to Understanding Theoretical Sound Poker by Matthew Janda is now available and has been selling well. This is a major work in the field and we at 2+2 feel it will have a significant impact on how no-limit hold ’em is played, especially at the higher limits where the competition tends to be much tougher.
We’re also being asked about the status of our next book, Harrington on Modern Tournament Poker by Dan Harrington and Bill Robertie. Based on my last communication with the authors, we’re expecting to receive the manuscript sometime this month, which means either a late November of early December publication date. Whether we remain on this schedule or if there is any change, I’ll keep everyone informed.
We also want to mention that the word is out that other Internet poker sites, in addition to Ultimate Poker, will soon be starting in Nevada. While we don’t have any inside information, we do suspect that these rumors are accurate and look forward to the new sites. Of course, the big news will be when other states start to link up with the Nevada sites. Before this can happen, the sites first have to make an appearance here. So, we welcome this first step.
That’s all I have for this month, but be sure if anything important happens in the world of poker it will be discussed on our forums. We do expect many important events to be happening in the not too distant future.
