brother, all i play is limit holdem, about 4-5 hours a day 6 days a week. i stand by my comment that it was one of the weakest "books" i've read concerning limit holdem. there was nothing new or revolutionary in her section, not even close. it added nothing to my game. i could see if the only thing you've read on limit is hellmuth then it might open your eyes a tiny tiny bit. it was too short, lacking any detail whatsoever. what she could have offered that might have been worth the price of the book in itself, is how she climbed the ranks, what strategies she added(dropped), some insights into the different venues and opponents she has played. all you end up getting is an ABC approach of how to play a tight/aggressive game of limit holdem, no more, no less.* out of *****
I have to agree. Although I like and respect Jennifer as a poker player. I think she's a very solid player all around. But her chapter in SS2 was pretty standard at best. For that matter, the entire book was somewhat of a letdown for me. I was soooo looking forward to learning some of Daniel's secrets only to find out it was all on Triple Draw (WTF????). Really, the only chapter I got anything out of was the one on Omaha.

speaking of books, does Daniel have any plans to write a book of his own? It would probably b a huge seller.

I met Jenn last spring and had a chance to watch her play the big game this fall. She is the nicest person you are bound to meet with the heart of a lion.

Agreed. I met her as well in the Spring, and wrote a post here about it I believe. Super friendly, even after a tough loss. I was duely impressed.

I have to say, of all the positive things said about Jennifer, the best I've heard is when Phil Ivey said, "I don't like it when I hear people say that she's one of the best women players in the world, because she's one of the best players in the world. Period."

The comment by Phil said it all for me (not a great woman poker play, but one of the best poker players). She is this beautiful woman with the heart and the killer instinct of a lion. She will win a big tourney soon!

Jennifer is teh hawt!For the interweb impaired, she is cute as a bug.One of my pleasures of playing at Bellagio was seeing her walking by.I enjoy watching her play, live and on t.v., she is the kind of player I aspire to be.
I'd rather be lucky than good - Yeah, all the idiots say that.

I agree with this 100%. I read the section and she talks like this is the best strategy when you're playing the highest stakes limit games in the world, when these are the DAMN NEAR EXACT strategies that ed miller talks about in his small stakes book. She didn't say anything in that book that anyone who knows anything about lhe didn't know.

ps: the best section was todd brunson's.
Agree 1 billion percent. Best article ever written on that game. Addresses the textures of teh game that are so much more important than just the straight "math".Never ceases to amaze me how many people completely forsake "the platinum rule" at 7 or 8 man tables.

You've got to be joking. You are, right? If you've seen as much poker as you let on, you'd know that women players can play just aggressively as any man. Some choose not to, but then again, so do some men. I saw Harman on The Game Show Network's "High Stakes Poker" quite regularly and I have seen her play some very tight/aggressive poker. At the start of one segment (the beginning of a new "episode") Jennifer took down the first two pots with super-aggressive play, one being on a monster all-in bluff.Secondly, if you saw the Tournament of Champions the year Annie Duke won, you know the statement you made was incredibly ignorant. Annie Duke took down a field of the greatest players out there. At the final table, she played so aggressively she had even Phil Hellmuth no knowing what the hell was going on.Kathy Liebert (although I think she's annoying as hell and a little conceited), plays very aggressive at times, even to the point of being too aggressive and going broke. She massively overplayed a small flush (something like 7-high), but never-the-less was not afraid to push a lot of chips into the pot. Aside from that, she can run a mean bluff.A lot of women players can play just as well as a lot of men. The simple fact is, there's less women out there because poker has just recently (last 10-20 years) become a game in which women are accepted and in many cases, feared.But to reply to the thread topic, Jennifer Harman is a very talented hold 'em player. She's one person I wouldn't want to sit at a poker table with, simply because she'd take my money. I'm sure I'd learn something from her. Solid player, very beautiful, and respected by the entire poker community. She seems like a very good person, too. 8.5/10
