Poker's Strangest Hands by Graham Sharpe

Romping through crooked games, dodgy players, exotic venues and incredible hands, 'Poker's Strangest Hands' celebrates the strange history of Poker's most celebrated tournament, its World Championship event and the characters who have graced it with their presence, compiles some of the strangest things said about the game and fully records the details of the strangest Poker Year yet, 2006. The Poker world is divided between those who believe the game to be the most skilled contest ever devised, and those who believe that success in the game relies on pure luck. Sharpe's thorough excavations through long forgotten archives of the game have uncovered the first ever Poker cheat, who was literally making a spectacle of himself in 1829; has unearthed the game which reportedly lasted for 24 years; exposed the US President who gambled away the White House crockery; and discovered that a certain member of the Royal family was very much amused by Poker. Whatever your view this book will appeal to the novice player who can barely tell his flops from his nuts, and equally to the connoisseur of the subtleties of Poker who has developed and matured his or her skills over many years.
