Default Re: Is it necessary to read TPFAP if you plan on getting HOH?

TPFAP inspired the far superior HoH works. If you have some unusual hard on for following the evolution of poker thought in order of its publication, you could read TPFAP first.

Instead, I'd recommend reading HoH vol 1 and 2. Then, when you want some supplemental material and a little bit of a rehash of some ideas (though presented slightly differently), you should TPFAP. TPFAP has some uniquely useful material, but not a whole lot.

One has to give TPFAP credit for inspiring the HoH works just as one has to give TOP credit for inspiring almost every decent written theory on poker in the last 25 years.
