At the Dream Cafe
Posted by Teresa at 09:27 PM *

Steve Brust has a weblog. His wordcount isn’t high, but on the other hand he only posts when he has something to say, so if you let it accumulate for a little while, when you do read it it’s all good. For instance:

Well, I now have most of the outline for my new poker book:

Chapter 1. How to slowplay until you’re beat and then check raise. Chapter 2. Drawing dead and getting there.
Chapter 3. How to bluff the nuts into the guy who has them.
Chapter 4. How to prevent bad beats by always going in with the worst hand.
Chapter 5. How to put your opponent on a hand you can beat so you can call.
Chapter 6. Chasing with overcards and other loss leaders.
Chapter 7: Bad call justifications:

A) I was in the blind, so I was already half in. B) They were suited
C) My good hands are getting beat, so I have to play this stuff.
D) In a game like this, you can’t win playing just the good cards.
Appendix: Lecturing your opponents on how you would have won if they’d played right.

Oddly enough, I couldn't find the "new poker book" stuff on the blog.
