Default Re: Poker Farce

PokerFarce is an unusual book that I happened to like so we published it. It seems that it is a text that people either love or hate, and yes, it was written by quite a character who unfortunately passed away at the beginning of this year.

Being a histroy buff I thought the last part of the book was great where he describes the battles of Pearl Harbor, Midway, and the Battle of Britain in poker terms. The late English writer and poker player David Spanier couldn't stand the book (and he praised many of our other books). David told me that Ray Michael B. couldn't even quote Churchill correctly, and I guess if you're English that's something you don't stand for.

Anyway, the book has no information in it that will help your poker game. We published it as an experiment in our effort to try to bring some other authors out. We probably will never do a book like this again, but I'm glad we did it once.
