The Poker Diary of Jonas Barrish
One of the most essential regimens of serious players of poker is record keeping. We bet that not all poker players monitor their performances by record keeping but we also bet that these poker players agree when we say that record keeping is part and parcel of being a serious player of poker. When we say record keeping, it means that poker players should keep track of the results of their performances. It means that poker players should keep track of key decisions. And one of the most important parts of record keeping is keeping track of the performances of their opponents. Record keeping is what Jonas Barrish has attempted to partake to his readers in his poker book "The Original Poker Diary."
"The Original Poker Diary" contains three hundred sixty one pages, published by Leathers Publishing in 2004. This poker diary is being sold in bookstores for US$14.95. We believe that a lot of poker players will like this poker book, especially due to the fact that Jonas Barrish's style of writing can be described as straightforward.
The first six pages of "The Original Poker Diary" focuses on how to use such poker book, whereas the last twenty pages of "The Original Poker Diary" featuress a glossary of poker terms. The main pages of "The Original Poker Diary" teach readers how to record events as they transpire in the poker world.
Jonas Barrish has made it a point to record not only cash games but also to record poker tournaments. There are several pages that are mainly devoted to poker tournaments in which there are pages dedicated to approximately seventy live game sessions and there are pages dedicated to approximately thirty poker tournaments encompassing a single volume.
With regard to the cash game records, Jonas Barrish has been successful in tackling topics like results, location, duration, date and starting time, and check boxes for limit and game. There are pages in "The Original Poker Diary" wherein Jonas Barrish allows poker players to take down notes as far as wins and losses and key hands are concerned. Jonas Barrish also provide fields for tournament records wherein poker players can indicate tournament structure information, buy-in information, game information, and information on location. Jonas Barrish has also provided a blank space for other key information that poker players need or want to indicate in their diary.
At first, we thought that it was not important to purchase "The Original Poker Diary" because poker players could purchase any kind of notebook where they could record poker performances. However, we have realized that Jonas Barrish has his own way of guiding poker players as to how to keep track of poker performances the right way. Therefore, we believe that "The Original Poker Diary" is a must for poker players who are serious about improving their skills.
