Poker is an evocative game that's endured through the ages. With more than ten million players competing daily online, poker has become much more than a simple hobby that gathers four friends around a table. The game requires an array of skills including technical mastery, the ability to anticipate and synthesize data, a dash of psychology, and of course, a lot of luck.

As its name suggests, Poker – The Ultimate Book contains everything you ever wanted to know about the most popular table sport in the world, including its history, legends, and psychology; the cheating, money, casinos, rules, and tournaments; movies and championships; the Internet; a dictionary of terms; and more. This reference book also provides a glimpse of poker's history and legendary players, a detailed analysis of the basic rules.

It's written by Francois Montmirel, who started playing poker in 1976 at the age of 13. He published his first manual to the game in 1984 and won his first international tournament in 1998. He won another in 2000 and is a three-time semi-finalist of the European Poker Championship.
