Ghosts at the Table Riverboat Gamblers Texas Rounders Roadside Hucksters and the Living Legends Who Made Poker What It Is Today Review ä 7 Rsonality Des Wilson traces poker’s Wild West origins in Deadwood South Dakota where “Wild” Bill Hickok was said to have been shot holding aces and eights to the annual World Series of Poker and amazing high. Ghosts was an excellent read I am a poker history buff and this book provided a thorough history of poker from its beginnings to present day It was done chronologically and dispelled myths and half stories that have perpetuated over time Des Wilson s research was exceptional and well thought out He did something that I would love to do research and play the game I love all under the guise of writing a book Brilliant I have to tell my wife that I need to go off and research poker across the US for a year His description of every aspect of the game the players and the back stories was engrossing I played at the WSOP in 2006 so I read his ending with acute interest I would recommend this book to any poker player which there are a lot of in this world The only downside I see is that if you are not as passionate about the gamesport as I am you may not have an interest in reading much of it and appreciate how much work was done to put the project together Thankfully there are millions of poker players that are Des Wilson s core audience that will enjoy this read
