Hey. This is Paul Christopher Hoppe with some shameless self-promotion. 6 years ago, Imagine Media published my first book, Way of the Poker Warrior. Now that the rights have reverted back to me, I’m happy to make it available again through Poker Is A Skill.

While the book is far from perfect – there are a few too many forewards and author bios in the front matter – most of the poker advice is as applicable today as it was in 2010. Much of the book focuses on my approach to the game, as well as my in-depth analysis of about 25 Limit Holdem hands.

Back in the day, I recorded a little excerpt of the preface, titled “Empty Your Cup.” There’s no poker technical rigor here. Instead, it teaches one of the most important lessons about learning anything.
