Howard Lederer 4 DVD Set
From Howard Lederer
This set includes all of Howard Lederer’s DVDs. It includes Secrets of No Limit Holdem, MORE Secrets of No Limit Holdem, Howard TELLS All, and Secrets of Limit Holdem.

This is an instructional DVD that is geared towards beginners. If you are more of a “visual” learner and just can’t get into poker books but want to become a better player, give this DVD set a try. Howard Lederer is one of the most respected poker professionals out there, and this DVD will definitely help your game.

Ed Miller’s 4 DVD Set
From Ed Miller
After making the leap from beginner to pro in less than a year and a half, Ed Miller teamed up with Sklansky and Malmuth of Two Plus Two Publishing to make poker books. He started with Small Stakes Holdem, moved on to Getting Started in Holdem, and has no released a 4 DVD Set on his own to help players with Limit Holdem.

These DVDs touch on many of the topics found in his first two books, but are geared towards the visual learner. I would highly suggest picking these ones up as Miller really knows what he is doing and is a great teacher.

This video is based on his best selling book “Caro’s Book of Poker Tells”. It has all the most up to date information on Poker tells from the “Mad Genius of Poker”, Mike Caro.
