With millions of people playing poker these days, a poker-related Father’s Day gift is a sure winner.
Dad could use a green, plastic, dealer’s visor, like the ones you see the dealers wearing on the World Poker Tour. And if he doesn’t play poker, the visor does double duty for bright Summer sunshine. Visors are available at a variety of places for as little as $2.99, including online retailers such as Amazon.com.
Or you could take a cue from Ed Miller, Noted Poker Authority. He’s recently completed his third book, No Limit Hold 'em: Theory and Practice, co-authored with David Sklansky. Both men are well known in the poker community and regularly contribute to online poker discussion forums, such as Two Plus Two (http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/).
“No Limit Hold 'em is excellent, and there's no book currently on the market that comes close to covering the material detailed in this book,” says Ed Miller who claims the book takes a theoretical approach to no limit hold ‘em poker and teaches its readers to think about the game in new and profitable ways.
“I’m the natural result of an Economics professor father and an English professor mother: I write books about poker.” When asked what he’ll get his father for Father’s Day Ed replies, “Oh yeah, Father’s Day is coming up. Guess I should get him something.”
If your father isn’t much of a reader, but still wants to learn how to play poker well, Expert Hold $Em offers a set of instructional hold’em DVDs. The DVDs, entitled, Reading Hands, Adjusting Your Play, Advanced Pre-Flop Concepts, and Protecting Your Hand retail for $24.95 each and are available at online at http://www.expertholdem.com/.
