The Championship Table at the World Series of Poker
Author: Dana Smith
From 1970 when the champion was presented a silver cup, to 2002 when the champion was awarded $2 million, The Championship Table celebrates three decades of poker players who have thrown their hats (and $10,000) into the ring in their quest to win poker's most coveted title. This book gives you the names and photographs of all the players who made the final table, pictures the last hand the champion played against the runner-up, how they played their cards, and how much they won. The Championship Table also features interviews and conversations with the champions and runners-up as well as interesting highlights from each Series. Rather than a complete history of the World Series of Poker, The Championship Table is a factual tribute to the players who have risked their bankrolls and pitted their skills against Lady Luck in the poker world's toughest arena. As such, it is a fascinating and invaluable resource book for WSOP and gaming buffs.
