Default Cover Contest: Getting Started in Hold \'em -- Second Try

Hi Everyone:

I'm going to try again so here goes,

We need a cover designed for our upcoming book Getting Started in Hold 'em by Ed Miller. The dimensions of the book are 5 1/2" by 8 1/2". If you want to use cover blurbs (and we like this) use:

Nuts and Bolts

Limit Hold 'em
. Sample Hands
. Preflop Standards

No Limit Hold 'em
. Overview
. Understanding Stack Size

Tournament Hold 'em
. Satellite Strategy
. Sit 'n Go Strategy
. Multitable Strategy

Evaluating Your Play

(See Harrington on Hold 'em for what I mean by cover blurbs.)

Note: "Nuts and Bolts" is not the title of the book. The title is Getting Started in Hold 'em and the author is Ed Miller.

The winner will get a complete set of our books, a $300 cash payment, and a Two Plus Two Publishing Logo Shirt. The cover will be chosen at the end of this month.

Best wishes,
Mason

I liked wakko's cover, but if you want to use my likeness I need royalties.

Oh well.... I actually thought the erroneous title was quite catchy!

"Nuts & Bolts: Getting Started in Hold 'em"

The previous thread has to be the funniest on 2+2.

Dont know if one person thought nuts and bolts was the title and the sheep followed or what but I havent laughed so much at postings on a forum, as well as the designs.

Just make it like the harrington one Ed pictured with the hat, if I had any photoshop skills I would do it.

How many covers can we do? And should they be posted here, or sent privately?

I think it should be a picture of Evelyn Ng grabbing Ed Miller's nuts & bolts.

Hi JKD:

You can do as many as you like and post them here for all to see.
