    In the spring of 2000, Harper's magazine sent James McManus to Las Vegas to cover the World Series of Poker. But when McManus sets foot in town, the lure of the tables is too strong: he proceeds to risk his entire Harper's advance in a long-shot attempt to play in the tournament himself. Only with actual table experience (he tells his skeptical wife) can he capture the hair-raising subtleties of poker that determines the world champion.

    Dave G. says: "Ted Binion, World Series of Poker, Strippers"
    "Heart of a father soul of a gambler"
    Overall

    Good Jim and bad Jim come together to weave a rich tale that paints a vivid picture of Vegas through the eyes and voice of a gambling writer/father. Jim marries the murder story of a prominent Las Vegas son with his own inside thriller at the 2000 World Series of Poker. A great account well read by the author who the listener can't help but feel for. You'll enjoy every minute of this short story.
