Matthew Hilger is a professional poker player from Atlanta, Georgia. In 1989, he received bachelor’s degree in finances, in 1991, he got the master's degree. Mathew started his professional online poker career in 2001. During the first year of play he earned $100.000 playing Limit Hold’em at stakes from $1/$2 to $30/$60. In 2002, Hilger won New Zealand Poker Championship and. He also has three ITMs at WSOP Main Event (2004, 2005, 2007). Currently Matthew is done with his poker carrier and works at the Isle of Man at PokerStars.

To the moment he wrote his first book “Internet Texas Hold'em: Winning Strategies from an Internet Pro”, Matthew Hilger had played about 7,000 hours in Limit Hold’em. The book will be useful to the players at micro stakes and to those who play at middle and high stakes. The development is an integral part of success in poker, and this book will help you to push on to the next level.

Mathew tried to describe the importance of such stuff as pot odds, bluffing, check-raising, slow playing, inducing the call, raise or fold from the opponent. After reading this book, you will learn to get free cards and get to know different strategies of playing starting hands at each street. There are some chapters of the book that need to be changed if you’re planning on applying the new knowledge in live poker games. There are examples of about 200 hands in the book that were played at online tables.

Matthew Hilger believes that to be successful in Limit Holdem one should try more than just a tight game. Hand selecting must be made with all caution but if you believe you have a good enough hand, you should play it aggressively. That is the essence behind the strategy described in the “Internet Texas Hold'em: Winning Strategies from an Internet Pro” poker book.

In general, we may say that Matthew Hilger’s “Internet Texas Hold'em: Winning Strategies from an Internet Pro” will help to build a good theoretical base for the beginners in poker, but it lost its relevance to the advanced players as there is no action in Limit Hold’em now.
