Last month, I announced that a new book by Mathew Janda is on the way. Since that announcement, much progress has been made with Matt delivering several more sections to us. So, we’re still on schedule for the middle of the summer. This month, I’ll announce another book which we’ll have ready to go in perhaps as little as six weeks.
For those who don’t know, the first issue of our Two Plus Two Online Poker Strategy Magazine was published in January of 2005, and our current editor, Bryan Clark, has been on board since the September issue of 2006. Furthermore, since that time, David Sklansky and I have written lots of articles for it. So at David’s request, Bryan got all the articles together and our plan is to publish a book of many of these essays. We haven’t yet agreed on a title, but we have agreed that it’ll probably only appear as an eBook, and the price will be very low.
The reason we’ll have it out quickly is that 95 percent of it is already written. So to that end, here’s our current Table of Contents (which should change a little). As for the page numbers, since we’re planning on only an eBook, page numbers can be variable. But it should be equivalent to about a 230 page book under our normal formatting.
