Poker : The Ultimate Book Paperback / softback
All you've ever wanted to know about the most practiced table sport in the world, including its history, legends, and psychology; the cheating, money, casinos, rules, and tournaments; movies and champions; the Internet; a dictionary of terms; and so much more.
What are the seven gold rules? What does "American Airlines" refer to? What is the Hicock rule? Who are the high rollers? With more than ten million players competing daily online, poker has become much more than a simple hobby that gathers four friends around a table.
Its rules may be simple, but the practice of the game itself solicits a whole array of skills including technical mastery, the ability to anticipate and synthesize data, a dash of psychology, and of course, a whip of luck.
All with millions of dollars at stake! This reference book invites you to delve into the annals of poker through a glimpse at its history and legendary players, a detailed analysis of the basic rules, as well as the most astute tips--which only an expert such as the author, a teacher and consultant to professional players, can provide.
All with the single aim of turning each reader into a winner!
