With an estimated fifty million players in the U.S. and a hundred million worldwide, poker is more popular than tennis and golf. What is poker's big draw? In general it offers a rare blend of skill and psychology, also it is the luck of the cards. But the home game, despite its enormous following, remains largely neglected. Poker Nights is a practical guide for the happy amateur looking for that slight edge in his (her) play. It features instruction on a wide selection of poker games with an emphasis on gameplay and tips on strategy. There's also a comprehensive guide to the many poker variants including: Acey-Deucy (aka Between the Sheets) Anaconda (aka Pass the Trash), Auction, Baseball, Blind Auction, Blind Balls, Chicago Criss-Cross (aka Iron Cross), Danny, Drops, and Follow the Queen (aka Chase the Bitch). This book prepares players for virtually anything a dealer might call and ultimately allows players to combine the thrill of gambling with the spirit of bonding in "Thursday night" poker.
