"Much better than the first one probably because the first one was too basic for me. I liked this one where I didn't care much for the first one. I realize he was trying to build a foundation in the first one but it did say it was "The Ultimate Guide to No-Limit Holdem" which it was not. Just tell it like it is and don't oversell and I won't be disappointed and give poor reviews. Back to the point- there is some useful information and some valuable tips and tells here so if you don't yet have this one it is worth getting.
He does a nice job of telling you how much to bet pre flop to get certain results ( three times the blind as average, more to shut opponents out, a little less as you gain more experience and can extract extra profit by outplaying your opponents after the flop). It provides a good baseline to build a winning no limit game and worth repeated viewing to strengthen your game. He has an appealing teaching style and seems sincere in talking about poker. Recommended."
Secrets and More Secrets Revealed

"I personally have benefited from this tremendously. I have only been playing since January 2004 and when Secrets of Holdem came out I thought ok this is for the beginner and was a little slow for me. Then when More Secrets of Holdem came out I picked up a few more things to help improve my game.
I see alot of negative posts about these DVD's and find it hard to believe. Maybe if you have been playing for years it is basic to you and I can understand that.
I look at things as if I can get one thing out of it that helps me improve it is worth it.
Aside from Howard's DVD's I attended his first Poker Camp in September 04 and learned alot from Phil Gordon, Ferguson, Annie Duke, Gus Hansen, and of course Howard. I entered a tourney in AC 3 days later and placed 7th out of 287. So I can say if you are willing to learn and apply what you learn there will be consistent improvement.
Also I pretty much place in the money most of the time , not all the time but more than most people because of what I learned."

"This DVD is terrific. Rather than describe the content, as most have, I'll discuss the results.
I'm a rookie that plays with friends every couple of weeks. I've been playing for less than a year. I hadn't been a very winning player for a while, but went to Vegas recently. I watched this DVD and studied the Pre-Flop Strategy, Odds Chart and Hold'em Race Odds charts, and decided to take a chance and enter a low-dollar tournament. What a blast- I finished 11th out of 51 players. The next night, I entered another tournament. I made it to the final table and placed in the money- 7th. Wow, I thought I was going to be taken to the cleaners, but did pretty well against some clearly more experienced veterans. After returning from the trip, I immediately beat my friends, two games in a row. I had been getting my butt kicked by them for a couple of months now, so needless to say, this video has really turned my game around.
I didn't realize how much I misunderstood about the game until I watched this video. I'm doing things in reverse order- now I'm going to purchase the first DVD to make sure I get the basics down, to add to these advanced techniques."

"After viewing the first dvd, I realized this poker pro knew how to get complex ideas across to the viewer very clearly. I thoroughly enjoyed the first dvd. I highly recommend getting it prior to this one for the complete package. If you think it is too basic for you, I would still invite you to give it a try. I thought it was going to be stuff I already knew until I saw how much I didn't know.
This dvd goes even further than the other dvd with poker concepts. I can't even begin to recommend it highly enough. The fine reviews here say it well. I have never been complimented on my game or asked where I learned to play before I viewed these dvds. Howard's concepts give you the confidence you need to feel relaxed at a table and make the best decisions you can make. Howard doesn't go through scenarios so much as provides you with the concepts of what you are trying to accomplish. He tries to get the viewer to realize no one decision is correct or incorrect ALL the time. These advanced concepts he does explain can be applied to numerous situations you will encounter at the poker table.
These dvds allow you to develop you're own poker style based on the foundation of Howard's teachings. I have never had this much FUN playing hold'em. Whatever I was doing before, it was all wrong. I have made more final tables in tournaments than my entire six months of playing. You can't go wrong with this one, it is a gem. Even my poker books make more sense after viewing these dvds. It has really provided me with the "secrets" I needed to go to the next level."
