Catching Fish - Your New PokerSites.com Poker Book
CATCHING FISH: Your Practical Guide to Beating $1/$2 No Limit Texas Hold'em Games is an easy-to-follow road map from PokerSites.com for both the less experienced and the non-winning recreational poker player.
This pleasant and unpretentious read is meant to help you maneuver your way to more cash wins at brick-and-mortar low-limit cash games. While the same principles can be applied online as well, we make it clear that “low limit” online is a different animal than “low limit” played in a land-based casino.
This book is for you if:
- You play micro-stakes Texas Hold'em or $1/$2 live poker
- You are tired of contributing to other players' bankrolls
- You want a no-nonsense, simple to read and understand poker guide
- You want to make your poker playing more profitable
- You are a loyal PokerSites.com reader and want to support us (hey, it never hurts to ask)
Online And Live Texas Hold'em
“If you’re playing online poker, remember that a $1/$2 game at an online site is not the same as a $1/$2 live game,” notes contributing author Edward Scimia in his practical “Miscellaneous Tips” section at the end of the book. “In reality, a $1/$2 online no-limit table is likely tougher than a typical live $2/$5 table, let alone a $1/$2 game. The difference is that a $1/$2 game is the “introductory” game in a live casino, while that role in an online poker room might be at stakes as low as $0.02/0.04.
That makes the advice in this book most apt for micro-stakes online poker games, and even there, you should make a few adjustments. You’re likely to see many, many more tight players at these tables than in live games; this doesn’t mean that they’re good, by and large, but you’ll have to adjust your play accordingly.”

Simple And Easy To Understand
This is the kind of simple but real info that peppers Catching Fish throughout, and if you are either new to the game, or are tired of regularly donating to other players' bankrolls, you will find boatloads of similarly useful insights here.
Many neophyte poker players look hopefully to someone with more experience than their own, and ask them to “teach them how to play”; PokerSites.com and Scimia take on that mentor role, without pretense or overly fancy terminology here (except where it would behoove the player to know oft-used poker lingo). We offer clear and systematic chapters that cover things like Basic Poker Concepts; Pre- and Post-Flop Play, and Additional Advice; within each of these are numerous sub-heads that deal clearly with virtually any poker scenario you could imagine, from determining bet sizes to controlling the hand play, to how to read and out think your opponents.
“...at a $1/$2 table, the goal is not to play 'perfect' poker – it’s to play in a way that takes full advantage of the errors the majority of your opponents will be making...I hope this book gives you the confidence, skills and knowledge necessary to become a winning player in live no-limit games played for small stakes,” the book says; and we deliver on our promise to lay a solid foundation for relative newbies to the game, or those who simply want to improve their edge.
