'Rolf always offers a fresh perspective on the game that's refreshing. His columns help readers think outside the box which is extremely important for any player looking to get to the next level.'Daniel Negreanu, one of the world's leading authors. 4-times bracelet winner, 2-times WPT Champion, and over $10 million in live tournament earnings 'There is not a single author who has caused as much irritation and aggravation as Slotboom has, yet who at the same time has such a refreshing and independent line of thinking. The author is not afraid to bite the hand that feeds him, and while he is very critical when it comes to the advice of others, he is also not afraid to ridicule or criticize his own plays at times.'Mel Judah, one of the world's most consistent tournament players with numerous cashes and final tables at major events. Former bracelet winner at the WSOP'A collection of the good, accurate and sometimes controversial columns that Rolf has written over the years, completely revised to take into account the growth of online play and the no-limit hold'em boom. I highly recommend it.'Thierry van den Berg (better known under his online handle BOKPOWER), one of the rising stars in tournament poker - with almost $800,000 live tournament winnings in just two years of play
