Poker Nation : A High-stakes, Low-life Adventure into the Heart of a Gambling Country Paperback
by Andy Bellin
On his way to a master's in astrophysics, Andy Bellin made the mistake of falling in love with poker.
Too many years down the line, he resurfaced from a life spent in high-rolling casinos and low-rent dives to tell us the tale.
Part memoir, part expose, "Poker Nation" is a journey through the ups and downs of being a gambler, a trip to a world where the only thing "weirder than a poker player is the guy sitting next to him".
This volume is a history of the world's most popular card game, a how-to-manual that can make readers better players and the story of one man's obsession.
