and master poker player Dan Harrington should be truly
flattered as he is one of the most imitated poker
players around. His loose, super aggressive playing
strategy has allowed him to make it consistently into
the World Series of Poker Championship Event.
many players want to know how they can play like this
there is no sure way to become as good
a poker player as Dan Harrington, there are ways that
less experienced poker players can develop
similar poker skills.
first way is to watch the videos of Dan Harrington's
past performance in the World Series of Poker Championship
Event. Several of these poker events are now available
on VHS and poker
DVD at a reasonable rate at Pokershopping.com.
Players can watch these past performances and take
notes on how he reacts to certain hands, how he reacts
to player types and how he reacts to less than perfect
and even perfect situations. After watching and learning
from these tapes, the player can then try to use Dan's
strategies in their own poker games.
way that less experienced player can learn to play
like Dan Harrington is to read the articles and books
that he has written. To find these printed learning
tools a player can visit their local library, local
bookstore, or visit an online bookstore. Most of these
locations have a gaming section where poker references
can be found. If the player is short on cash they
can also conduct an online keyword search for reprinted
articles, book excerpts and play by play transcripts
of Dan's games and wisdom.
great resource of information on Dan Harrington is
to search online for a player profile that highlights
the strengths and weaknesses of Dan Harrington's poker
style. For example, one online poker player profile
described Dan Harrington's best game as No Limit Texas
Hold'em, and that his weakness is that he does not
like to invest a lot of money on any hand regardless
of the strength of the hand. With this information
a player can design their No Limit Texas Hold'em strategy
to include loose plays that utilize several passive
bets instead of a few tight and aggressive moves.
of the information that is discovered through watching
Dan Harrington in action, by reading one of his books
or articles, or by reading a player profile online
can be used to develop a personalized poker strategy.
This strategy should incorporate some of the strategies
suggested or used by Dan Harrington with the personal
poker playing strengths and preferences of the player
in question. It should be noted that not all poker
strategies are appropriate for every type of poker
game, and the advice given by a professional is usually
only helpful for the game and limit structure that
they normally play. However, some of the advice given
can be useful if it is slightly modified by the player.

games make this site one of the best.
