"Poker players and writers are by their nature very competitive people: so understand that as someone who fancies himself adept at both it causes me a measure of pain to tell you that Andy Bellin has written a good - oh hell, make that a great - book. Mixing history, strategy, mathematics, and autobiography, Bellin entertains, educates, and illuminates. For fans of poker and good writing, this is the stone-cold nuts."

This book is a randomn assortment of stories with no flow to them at all. It is basically a collection of poker tales that the author tries to pass off as his own. There are historical errors in some parts and what feels like outright lies in other places. This book is so bad that instead of reswapping it, I am going to throw it away. Hopefully I will spare someone else the headache that comes from reading such junk.
