Fox wrote this book when draw poker was in its heyday in California's cardrooms and it fast became the book to read if you wanted to compete in those games. Even though draw is not as popular as it once was, this book still stands out as one of the best books on the subject. Fox concentrates on the aspects of the game that are essential for pro players: position, frequency, distribution of playable hands (draws with bug), bluffing frequencies, eliciting calls, behavioral deductions, when to call. The book includes many math tables and dozens of psychological ploys. 343 pages, paperbound. 1977.
