Doyle Brunson's Super System: A Course in Power Poker, 3rd Edition
In 600 pages, twice-world champion and Hall of Famer Doyle Brunson and five leading experts in their various specialties tell you when to raise, call, bet, and fold at hold 'em (limit and no-limit), 7-stud (high and low), draw poker, and lowball.

This treatise on professional-level poker is the result of over 10,000 hours of labor by the world's greatest players and theorists and has never been equaled in scope or value. This is the must-have book for serious poker players. Illustrated in black and white throughout.
Still the best how-to book on poker ever written
By Dennis Littrell
- November 17, 2003
When this was first published in the seventies it caused a sensation. Immediately recognized as the most ambitious poker book ever written, it nonetheless was received with irritation by some professionals because it was believed that Doyle "Texas Dolly" Brunson and his collaborators gave away too much, thereby allowing the amateurs to catch up, thereby cutting into the professional player's take.There is more than a little truth to this accusation. Poker is an ever-evolving superset of games with the individual games changing over time as the players learn how one game and then another should be played. Write a revealing book and the old games disappear more quickly and the "rocks" have to learn the new game in order to continue to make a living. Today's most important games are hold'em and seven card stud. Both are covered in this book, hold'em quite extensively.What sets Brunson's Super/System apart from other poker books is first the prestige and... read more
Still a Super/System
By Mr. David Welsh
- July 27, 2003
Brunson & Co. wrote this book in the mid 1970s and if your interest in poker as a game with a very rich and colourful history is anything like mine its well worth buying. The chapters where Brunson talks about his past are great background to understanding one of the all-time great champions.As for the lessons in this post-graduate school of poker, some really are of historical value only. I suppose Caro's lecture on Draw might be of use in home games but Skalansky's on hi-lo has been out-flanked by time - the qualifier did for it. Baldwin's chapter on limit hold'em is also of no value - not only has the game changed (they used to play it with a single blind and antes from every player - to make things easier and quicker in casinos they changed to the big & little blind structure) but there are five or so more books that today to a better job.Two chapters retain value. Firstly, and often overlooked, is Chip Reese's chapter on Seven Card Stud. Its not particularly... read more
A Good, but Dangerous Book
- November 20, 2003
This is one of my favorite poker books of all time, however, not necessarily for its strategic value. Granted, each and every section of this book has some very valuable insights from odds, to game theory, to various ways to approach different hands. With that said, what I find particularly noteworthy are the little details and anecdotes from Brunson Himself. From Broomcorns unkle to Old Blocky and the Beer Hand, it's the details and Doyles obvious passion for the game that really make this book a standout.However, as I would advise the book only to advanced players with significant experience and the desire to vary their play. The authors system really only works for a super agressive player who is not only extremely talented, but very disciplined. Not many people can emulate this style, and most who try WILL LOSE MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF MONEY!!! With that said, at this price (I bought the hardcover version long ago for $50+), you really can't lose. It's a great addition to... read more
