A smoke-filled room. The clink of chips breaking the silence of furious concentration. The occasional muttering of "check", "raise", and "fold", as staggering amounts are wagered on a simple hand of five cards. This fascinating book describes the history of poker-its most amazing stories, unforgettable players, and incredible hands. From the first great Las Vegas poker marathon, in which Nick the Greek played Johnny Moss for five months straight, to the more recent World Series of Poker.
