      Hola, me acabo de enterar que en junio sale un nuevo libro de Harrington, al principio no me llamó mucho la atención porque había leído que los libros de Harrington para torneos son buenos pero los de Cash Games son flojitos, pero, en 2+2 postearon los contenidos que va a tener el libro y parece muy prometedor. Va a salir $39 dólares aprox y su nombre "Harrington on Online Cash Games", espero que lo pongan rápido en la tienda de Stars.
