Poker Books

One of the main advantages of playing 6 max limit texas holdem is that there is so little written specifically in the strategy. This is because the game is still relatively new. Live poker rooms tend to only have 10 player tables. Online poker rooms introduced the 6 max tables relatively recently and they have proved extremely popular.
All the books below will prove money well spent to anyone playing texas holdem. None of the books are dedicated to shorthanded or 6 max, simply because no book exists. However most of the books below do have a chapter or more on shorthanded poker. Those that don't talk directly of shorthanded are considered the best alround limit texas holdem books and can only improve your game.
