Killer Poker Online
by John Vorhaus
Vorhaus has contributed much to poker via the written word, much of it dealing with the mental part of the game. In this book he continues that slant, bringing a perspective to the online poker game not yet researched by others. His initial advice is to scrap your live-game strategy, which he follows with advice on how to develop a killer Internet game. He includes information on the common pitfalls an dbankroll cripplers, online tells, your margins of error and the intensity of the accelerated pace. In two chapters (The Dark Side and Pitfalls) he discusses cheating, collusion--how to detect it and what to do about it--and the problems with random number generators. However, even though he deals with these subjects, most of the book deals with learning how to play and beat online poker.
