    Story

    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"
    "For the gambler in all of us"
    Overall

    History and poker are woven into a fabric of intrigue and excitement with every breath. The "Bad Jim" keeps it interesting while "Good Jim" represents daily life. Read it a couple times and it never gets old.
