It's an understatement to call poker a national obsession, and the World Series of Poker (WSOP) championship represents the game's top achievement. In this exciting history, the authors use first-hand interviews, video footage, and written accounts to craft a comprehensive and highly entertaining account of the greatest tournament in the world. They introduce colourful - and seemingly fearless - characters and chronicle some of the most gut-wrenching and heart-breaking moments, often with millions at stake, to be found in any event of its kind.
