The author is both a teacher and a poker player. He has been running popular home poker games for nearly 30 years with the emphasis on skillful play and fun rather than huge profits.

With the advent of televised Poker tournaments and online competition Poker has suddenly emerged from the smoky sets of Hollywood movies to become a popular pastime.

The problem is that most people only know of Texas Hold’em as shown on Television.

The next problem is that Texas Hold’em, for small stakes, over a kitchen table, for people not willing to memorise the deck or do the maths, rapidly becomes largely random and a bit dull.

What fun is there in going all in at half past eight when the chilli is still on the stove and the taxi is booked for eleven, if you lose?

This book contains all you need to know to be part of a successful Poker party for players who take the game seriously because they want to be up at the end, but who also want to enjoy good company and a sense of friendly rivalry over a pleasant meal for agreed stakes.

There are lots of varieties of Poker. Those in this book have been happily enjoyed and developed by the author and his friends for over twenty years.

You win some, you lose some,

but you always have fun.
