    1. The third volume in the series is full of exercises, testing you on all the principles Harrington taught in the first two volumes. The emphasis is still on tournament games, not cash games, and I have seen some reviewers comment that it's slightly dated as poker is a game that changes - not the rules, but the environment, and the tactics people use in betting. I've seen this a bit in my own bar poker league, though it's hard to know if that's really indicative, since free poker is way different [...]

    2. I picked this book up again because I realized that my post-flop play had gotten sloppy. This time I took the book seriously. With pen in hand, I went through the exercises and scored as I went along. It’s hard to fool yourself when the answer, right or wrong, is staring back at you. In short, the book forced me to look at the second level of book: what does my opponents betting say about his hand.

    3. A great exercise for thinking players, but likely to make me think way too much for the stakes at which I can afford to play. It tests and reinforces the ideas of the first two volumes nicely, and Harrington is patient and articulate in describing his logic at every juncture.The only real criticism I have is the definitiveness he gives to some of the plays.

It's not a short book, but I sat down and worked through the whole thing in one day. It was that interesting to me. At the end, he includes a chart that helps you discover systematic weaknesses in your thinking based on your specific incorrect answers to questions throughout the book. A valuable resource, definitely recommende [...]

    5. good tidbits on different tactics and scenarios of playing; advanced moves and advice on different stages of a tournament bring out good questions to ponder, although some of his theories might be too presumptive; at this level of poker, different styles of play become more prevalent, and the right moves much more subjective; still, a good read, just to get oneself aware that these questions even exist

    6. I love the idea of having a self- test poker book that does not always declare the "right play" but explains in detail the benefits and problems of various possible plays. Part of the best poker instructional series I have ever read.

    7. Scored around 340/591. Have yet to put what I learned to practice but it gives a lot of feedback on improving your play style.

    8. Arguably my favorite of the 3 Harringtons--mainly because the advice is all down-to-earth and practical, not general, and based upon the given situations.

    9. This book is hand analysis. I didn't find it is as useful as the first two. You will definitely pick up useful information each time you read it.
