The Course by Ed Miller Is Out Today

The Course: Serious Hold 'em Strategy For Smart Players by Ed Miller


Today’s the day for my brand new book The Course: Serious Hold ‘Em Strategy For Smart Players. The early reviews are coming in, and I’m very happy that people are enjoying the book.

If you’ve read some of my other books, this book is different. It’s by far my most practical book to date, and it walks you step-by-step through all the skills you need to play professional-level no-limit hold ‘em. Read more about it here.



Announcing The Course: Serious Hold ‘Em Strategy For Smart Player by Ed Miller

The Course: Serious Hold 'em Strategy For Smart Players by Ed Miller

My new book is almost here. In fact, you can already pre-order it. It’s a practical and effective, step-by-step guide to winning consistently at no-limit hold ’em. It teaches the game as a series of skills. The first skill is the most important, but also the most fundamental. Each subsequent skill builds upon the last. Master the first few skills, and you can win at the 1-2 or 1-3 level. Master the next few, and you can win at 2-5. And master the final skills, and you can hang at 5-10 among the best players at your local card room.

What They’re Saying About Poker’s 1% by Ed Miller

I offered a special deal back in November to my readers to get a two week sneak peak at my brand new book, Poker’s 1%: The One Big Secret That Keeps Elite Players On Top. The sneak peek is underway, and I’m already starting to get feedback. Here’s what they’ve been saying.

The book is 100% without question, the most groundbreaking thing that I have ever read on the game.

-John Childs

I really like your book and would make it the first thing my students read (you know, if I had students).

– Seth Baldwin

I just finished the book. You can probably tell from how fast I read it that I loved it. Gotta go clean my gray matter off the walls now.

– Carlos W.

You can tell from these quotes that this book isn’t some rehash of stuff you’ve read already. The reality is that elite poker players (the 1%) approach the game in a completely different way than everyone else (the 99%). In Poker’s 1%, I hope to bridge that gap. I want to give you a simple, clear window into the world of the top players.

You aren’t going to read a book and play like them overnight. No way. Elite players have put in thousands of hours of work to get when they are. What the book does is it shows you in plain language how what they do is so different from what everyone else does at (and away from) the poker table. It also shows you exactly the type of work you need to do if you want to join the elite.

Poker’s 1% gives you a clear road map to massive improvement. It lays out the path for you. It’s up to you to decide how far you ultimately go.

The release date for the PDF e-book version of Poker’s 1% is March 11, 2014. Other e-book formats and paperback will be available a few weeks after that. You can preorder the book right now.

Want to know more? Here are links to everything I’ve written about the book so far.

Poker’s 1% Release Date Announcement

My brand new book, Poker’s 1%: The One Big Secret That Keeps Elite Players On Top, is officially complete. The release date for the PDF e-book will be Tuesday, March 11, 2014. Paperbacks will be available 4-6 weeks after that. I will also try to get a Kindle version available around the time of the paperback.

I’m very happy with the book, and I think it’s got a decent shot to blow your mind. Stay tuned. Between now and release, I will post the Table of Contents and an excerpt or two.

Poker’s 1% Status Update

I’ve got a new book coming out very soon. It’s called Poker’s 1%: The One Big Secret That Keeps Elite Players On Top. It’s a great book that generalizes some of the concepts presented in Playing The Player.

Poker's 1% by Ed Miller

I announced the book in November and ran a limited-time preorder sale. If you snagged a copy during that sale, I said that I expected to send you the PDF version of the book in February. It’s now February, so I figured it was time for an update.

We’re still on target for a late February finish. All that’s left to do is the layout, which should take maybe 3 weeks (give or take). Once the book is fully laid out, I will package and email it ASAP. If, for some reason, the layout takes a bit longer than 3 weeks, it’s because I’ve hired someone with experience to lay the thing out right this time rather than try to do it myself. So expect an upgraded reading experience over my last two books.

I also promised a two week sneak peek to my preorderers. So I’m going to finish the book and email it out. Then I’m going to wait two weeks after that before I release it for general sale. The full release date, therefore, is looking to be early-mid March.

At release, I will have only a PDF e-book ready. The Kindle version is more complicated this time around, due to the layout upgrades. So it will likely be 4-6 weeks from late February before a Kindle version is ready. A similar timeline goes for the paperback version. If you preordered the book or you buy the e-book at release, and if you’d like the Kindle format when it’s ready, just email me when I announce that the Kindle version is done, and I’ll send it to you.

Preorderers also bought a paperback copy, and I will ship those paperbacks out as soon as I receive them. My best guess for that is April.

That’s about it. Oh, and I’m launching a new website here at I’m not taking down the old website yet, just slowly phasing things over for now. I’ll be posting articles here periodically, and I plan to start producing more video and audio content in 2014. So stay tuned. If you run a poker-themed blog or other website, please drop me a link over to this new site on your blog so people can begin to find the new site.

I’ll be posting more updates from now through the paperback and Kindle releases in April. I’ll post some excerpts and other info to let you guys know a little more about what the book is about.
