While the authors, Wallace and Stemple, are prominent instructors, this book would get a five star rating from us regardless because it is by far the best book on no-limit cash games. The key to Wallace’s approach is his ability to break the game down into it’s component parts and Stemple helps him explain these concepts in ways that are easy to understand. Once the reader understands correct strategy, they are free to use their own creativity to exploit their opponent’s mistakes.
We particularly liked the hand examples in the strategy chapters and the chapters on hand reading and bankroll management. These are overlooked concepts in most poker books, and they are incredibly valuable. The simple starting hands guide at the beginning of the book is great, but the advice about when to throw a starting hands chart out the window is even better.
No Limits is one of only two books that are really worth reading on no-limit cash strategy. The subject is so complex that it is very tough to write about, and most authors, even some very good players, fall flat when they try to explain the complex concepts involved in playing deep stacked no-limit holdem. The other book we recommend is Professional No-Limit Holdem: Volume 1 by Mehta, Flynn, and Miller, which makes an excellent companion for No Limits. We recommend reading both, with No Limits first or studying the two together, because they cover very different approaches to the game.
We usually post Amazon links for books, and we appreciate you using them, but in this case you might as well just buy it from the authors directly through their website – NoLimitsBook.com.
