Review:

Spanier captures the language and flavor of the wild and often colorful world of gambling poker in particular. His lively, entertaining stories written by a man who knew the best, the classiest, and some of the most talented, sometimes bizarre members of the gambling fraternity offers insights into high stakes play, Las Vegas and world-class action. Howard Schwartz, Gamblers Book Shop, Las Vegas"

Many of the greats of poker are long gone. Ungar, Strauss and even Spanier are names of the past. But what lasts forever are the memories of big hands won and lost. They are never forgotten, those brief moments of splendid victory sandwiched between so many slices of rancid defeat served up by a scowling Lady Luck with snakes in her hair. That is why the game endures. Bob Shemeligian, Las Vegas Mercury, July 2001"

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The gambling writer and journalist David Spanier looks back at his life-long love of poker in this compelling memoir. Spanier takes us from teenage days spent playing the horses to the elegant casinos of Mayfair and Monte Carlo, from the legendary Tuesday night game in north London to Las Vegas. Primarily a collection and development of articles that Spanier produced for various publications, (although many pieces appear in this book for the first time), Spanier begins with an account of his early life that led to his fascination with gambling then moves on to consider the appeal of gambling to human beings as a species. He goes on to cover his time on a Caribbean poker cruise, give his thoughts on internet poker, Las Vegas in literature, discusses Texas 'Holdem for beginners and recounts his experiences in the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em tournament at the World Series of Poker.
