Reseña del editor
Elite poker players aren't like the rest of us. Sure, they play in huge games where tens of thousands of dollars can move in the blink of an eye. But that's not the only difference.
Elite players play and think about the game in a completely different way from everyone else. If you want to raise your game to their level, it's not just a matter of getting a little better at what you already do. The honest truth is that the way 99% of poker players approach the game is fundamentally flawed. You will never be able to crack the top 1% until you know what they know.
There's one big secret to the game that nearly every elite player knows, yet almost no one else understands. It's an open secret-no one is hiding it. Elite players talk about it sometimes in videos and articles. Nevertheless, top players have known this secret for years, yet still almost no one else does.
Poker's 1% seeks to change that. It bridges that gap between the elite players and everyone else. It promises that as long as you are willing to put in the work, you too have a shot to reach the top.
Poker's 1% teaches a way of thinking about how you play, a way to unify every hand you've ever played and ever will play into one single, overarching strategy. The goal is that you will have one big "aha" moment, the moment where you finally "get" this game.
After that, it's just fine tuning. The more you fine tune your strategy, the more you win, and the higher you can go.
Poker's 1% gives you a unique window into the secrets of the world's best players. It shows you what you've been doing wrong and how to fix it. And, most importantly, it guides you in a straightforward way along the path from average player to elite.

This book is for you. Honestly, I think it might even be the best book to be a second book on poker.
All the other effective strategies are actually designed to either A) conform with, or B) exploit deviations from, the central idea. That, and/or they assume that nobody else is thinking along these lines.
The central idea is frequency based play; How often you should be taking each action on each street.
Example abound: "You don't bluff a fish" because his calling frequency is too high(actually, if you ARE bluffing him his game resembles perfect strategy and he sorta destroys you) "Fold your one pair hand to a turn raise" is ONLY correct when/if your villain has little to no bluffing range. Etc etc etc. Every thing I know about poker falls into one of those categories.
I suspect some players start reading this and think, like I did, "My win rate will plummet!" I think they decide early on that this is NOT for them and even if they finish it they read it with this bias and, being human, confirm it.
This, or fundamental failure to understand, is the only explanation for a non-elite player to criticize the book IMO.
If you read on WITH AN OPEN MIND you will find the real use of this book toward the end. In a nutshell it is this:
You make money when your opponent makes a mistake and you capitalize on it(i.e. exploit them) and EVERY MISTAKE YOUR OPPONENTS ARE MAKING IS A FREQUENCY BASED MISTAKE.
(Perhaps that's too sweeping but perhaps not)
If you understand the correct frequencies, and it's NOT easy, you will see ALL the ways to take their lunch money. You'll be a beast at your stakes.
Also, as he points out, you'll beat tougher and tougher games. And, it is certainly true that you could NEVER be elite without it.
As Ed points out relentlessly, you have to do the work. It's very specifically laid out for you. If you don't do the work, this book will probably get you in trouble. This accounts for a lot of the less-than-stellar reviews, I'd bet.
Anyway, it's my estimation that I you've read a bunch of poker books and you feel like each one gives a few (and decreasing) nuggets of information then hold on. This is not that. This was all new info to me (almost) and I've read a bunch of poker books.
I've been putting of buying this book for a while. I regret that. I already know it will probably have the best and longest lasting effect on my game.
That's my opinion. Hope it helps.
I feel Ed struggled to get to 200 pages, the flow of the book certainly could be improved upon but there is just not a lot there to discuss. The book is written from Ed's brainstorming but he never developed it further. I suppose it is a difficult task, but that is the job of the author. David Sklansky mentions the concept in his books (not letting a better bet any 2 cards for a profit) that Ed wrote 200 pages on, but only in a sentence or two. The task of translating this concept into 200 pages was too daunting.
There will be smug reviewers who will claim I do not understand the book well enough to write the review as they did other 1 star reviews. I bought into their rebuttals and still purchased this book. This is my 2nd book from Ed, the first was NL Holdem with him and David. That book is a great foundation on NL poker. I am starved to learn more about the game but I am too hesitant to purchase another book from Ed after reading Poker 's 1%. I could care less about the price of Ed's books, and am very interested in Playing the Player, but just unsure what I am getting for my time investment.
