9780060740832: Bad Beats and Lucky Draws: Poker Strategies, Winning Hands, and Stories from the Professional Poker Tour

Bad Beats and Lucky Draws is your down-and-dirty guide to the world of high-stakes professional poker. Phil Hellmuth, nine-time World Series of Poker Champion and author of Play Poker Like the Pros, presents a blow-by-blow account of many of poker's "clash of the titans" hands from the World Series of Poker, the World Poker Tour, and the European Tour. Phil provides insights into what the players were thinking and includes his own take on what they (and in many cases what he) should have done differently. Highly entertaining and instructive, Bad Beats and Lucky Draws gives you a seat at the table with the best bluffs, reads, and over-the-top plays such as the hand that won Phil his record-tying ninth bracelet at the 2003 World Series to the heartbreaking play that knocked him out of the "Big One."

Bad Beats and Lucky Draws also includes special contributions by

  • Doyle Brunson
  • Johnny Chan
  • Annie Duke
  • Howard Lederer
  • Daniel Negreanu
  • Ted Forrest
  • Jennifer Harman
  • Layne Flack

About the Author:

Phil Hellmuth, Jr. is a ten-time World Series of Poker Champion and all-time leading money winner at the World Series of Poker. In addition to appearances on the Discovery Channel, E!, ESPN, and Fox Sports Net, he has been featured in Sports Illustrated, Time, and Esquire. Phil also contributes to Gambling Times Magazine and writes for many poker websites. He lives with his family in Palo Alto, California.

From Booklist:

One of the most well known of the current crop of professional poker players, Hellmuth is the type you love to hate--he's a sore loser and a boastful winner, but he's fun to watch. Plus, he wins a lot. His first book, Play Poker like the Pros (2003), appeared as the recent poker craze was gaining momentum and has become a modern bible of the game. Here, rather than formal teaching, Hellmuth shares some of his most memorable hands--some that won him a ton, some that lost him more, and some that were just plain uncanny. Jumping from tournament to tournament, Hellmuth lays out his own world tour of poker. There's plenty to learn from his war stories.
