Publisher's Summary

What does it take to be a great poker player?
It's no secret that masters of poker think differently than ordinary people. In this truly groundbreaking audiobook, Haseeb Qureshi, retired world-class high stakes poker pro and instructor, takes you on a journey of rediscovering the game of poker from the inside out. He explores the depths of strategy, psychology, and philosophy within poker, and teaches you his uniquely scientific perspective on approaching the game.
Whether you've seen all the guides and want to take your game to the next level, or whether you're an amateur wanting to learn what it's all about, this game-changing audiobook is a must-listen. In the words of WPT World Champion David Williams, "An absolute requirement for anyone serious about poker."

Not what you will expect

This was a fantastic book, but for different reasons than other poker books. Haseeb does not waste time discussing every aspect of poker theory. Instead he focused on how to program yourself to develop into a high level player; which includes everything from lifestyle design to the many overlooked nuances of gambling for a living. This book has changed my life and made me realize that playing poker is actually not my passion and that by continuing on my path I'm only hurting myself and others. It does not fit my lifestyle design. But this will not be the case for everyone of course. If you have any intention of playing poker seriously I recommend this book to you and I suggest that you be very honest with yourself as you absorb the content. If poker is for you than this book can become your bible. If not, you will save yourself a lot of time, money and pain for having read this. Best of luck to everyone.

Incredible Bridge from Cognitive Biases to Poker

Where does How to Be a Poker Player rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

"How to Be a Poker Player" ranks number two, not just among all the audiobooks I've listened to so far, but among every book I've ever read or listened to. The only audiobook/book I enjoyed more than Haseeb's is the 2002 Nobel Prize winner, Daniel Kahneman's Thinking: Fast and Slow. Not bad for only getting beat by a Nobel Prize winner.

What about Haseeb Qureshi’s performance did you like?

I feel that most of the time when an audiobook is read by its author, the emphases tend to be a little too dramatic, and the author comes off a little too forceful. However, just like his 3betting range on the river, Haseeb's reading performance is perfectly balanced. His calm voice is patient, informative, and caring. His writing style is neither patronizing nor narcissistic, and this comes through in his voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Most if not all of Haseeb's conclusions and inferences in this book impacted not just my poker game but my life as well. His insights are vast, and his explanations are easily grasped.

Any additional comments?

I would highly recommend this audiobook/kindle book to any poker player. Players of all experience levels could benefit from Haseeb's one of a kind book on "How to Be a Poker Player".

Warning, this is not for the average poker player

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book was written for professionals or high caliber players. I just could not follow it and stopped listening.

What could Haseeb Qureshi have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Realise that most listeners are not professional players

What character would you cut from How to Be a Poker Player?

Seriously....this question does not apply

Haseeb provides much insight into the many facets of playing poker long term. Much of the non-directly poker derived insight and wisdom can be applied to any game or art form. Great book!
