The secret is out. Poker has become the hottest game in town. No longer viewed as the pastime of husbands seeking refuge from their wives, it is regularly played by an estimated 80 million people. Many play at home or online, but taking the game out of the kitchen and into the casino can be intimidating. That' s where POKER: THE REAL DEAL comes in. World-class poker player and co-host of the hit show CELEBRITY POKER SHOWDOWN Phil Gordon has paired with writer Jonathan Grotenstein to write this comprehensive guide to the game. In addition to introducing the most popular forms of poker and explaining the intricacies of this game of skill, they describe the ins and outs of poker psychology and groom the reader, from home player to seasoned professional, in a single volume. They examine the different breeds of players from the Rock to the Manic, detail what to wear, drink and tip, and profile the legends of the game with tips from some of the biggest names in poker today. This definitive guide to poker provides a rare inside look at the game in language accessible to players of every level.
