This classic is not only a poker playing manual but a marvellous autobiography. First published in 1957, Yardley, also the first chief of the US code breakers during W.W.1 and W.W.2, recalls countless poker games with characters ranging from railroad men, travelling salesmen, speculators, drunks, no-hopers, and even secret agents, all seen across the green baize tables of the world. Offering fascinating insight into Yardley's cautious/tight play variety of poker as well as the world of code breaking, this book is in a league of its own.
