His book “The Official Rules of Poker” is the first comprehensive poker rulebook ever written on the game. I believe that the differences between good and bad Omaha hands and situations is more difficult to evaluate than in any other commonly played form of poker, and Ciaffone imparts a great deal of wisdom about how to handle these situations in his quizzes.
There is much more that a good player can do to triumph over weaker opponents. Blake Pengelly rated it liked it Sep 07, The book begins with some background, explaining the rules of the game, its origin, and other generally useful information.
