Study program
I posted the below on the Texas Hold'em general board, but I figured I'd repost it here to see if you guys had any more specific recommendations. I'm actually regularly playing in a 25/50 NL game with very little knowledge and it's working about as well as you'd expect. Any help would be appreciated.

>>>> I have been playing for a bit, way over my head (I have more money then knowledge or ability), and have not really "studied" yet but for playing. I have bought a ton of poker books, and read few to none... Sad I know. Well, I'm intending to get serious, and curious what books you guys would recommend for a serious study program. Importantly I'm really interested in the order to read these books as again I've bought most of them, but I use my confusion as to where to start as an excuse to thumb through them all repeatedly but read none... After you all help me I'll be out of excuses [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Thanks!

Re: Study program
All the theory in the world won't help anyone if they don't have the experience. You won't be able to quantify situations correctly and will often misapply what you've learned. Reading's great, and it'll probably keep you on track, but you're just going to have to go out and play a ton of poker in order to improve.

If you want a recomendation I'd say to become an active poster on the forums. They're a far more valuable resource than any 2+2 publication.
