Stewart Reuben has been playing poker, or a game rather like it, since he was 9 years old - a career spanning approximately 56 years. He has played mainly in Britain and the US against some of the best and, fortunately, some of the worst players in the world. There aren’t many players who have managed to stay the course over such a long period. Here, Stewart candidly gives the reasons for his success and also for his failures. Meet some of the great personalities of the game and some who you perhaps would not want to meet in a dark alley. Learn on your journey the relative merits of casino and home games; how to gamble; but most important, how to enjoy yourself. Stewart’s previous five poker books are all technical works and highly regarded. Poker has undergone great changes in recent years. This book should inspire you to take advantage of the possibilities which are opening up and thereby prosper.

John Billingham is an English maths professor, and a keen player of games. In the summer of 2009 he discovered online poker and was hooked. A year later he decided to trick a couple of impressionable young poker pros, Austrian Thomas Tiroch (TwiceT) and Romanian Emanuel Cinca (EmanuelC16), into teaching him how to play poker on the promise of writing a book with them. Little did he know what he was letting himself in for.

Over the course of this entertaining book, TT and Manu explain how to beat these small stakes games, aided and abetted by JB, and illustrate all the important concepts with real example hands.
