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. The game requires an array of skills including technical mastery, the ability to anticipate and synthesize data, a dash of psychology, and of course, a lot of luck. Here is everything you ever wanted to know about the most popular table sport in the world, including its history, legends, and psychology; the cheating, money, casinos, rules, and tournaments; movies and championships; the Internet; a dictionary of terms; and more. This reference book also provides a glimpse of pokerÕs history and legendary players, a detailed analysis of the basic rules, as well as the kind of astute tips that only an expert such as the author, a teacher and consultant to professional players, can provide.
