Playing with the Big Boys: A Woman's Guide to Pokerby Laura A. Van Vleet, G. L. Norris
This lively and practical guide to poker was written by women for women who have felt excluded by this male-dominated event and who want to claim their seats at the table-and win! Every aspect of this complex game is covered, from the origins and basics of poker to the many variations and strategies and ways women can participate in and prepare for tournaments. The fundamentals of five- and seven-card stud, blackjack, draw games, and Texas hold 'em are presented, as are more unusual variants such as Chicago, Indian Poker, baseball, lowball, hi-lo, and Anaconda. Betting and bluffing strategies are explored, and tips for managing a losing streak--or a winning streak--are included.
Author Biography: Laura A. Van Vleet and G. L. Norris are a writing partnership as well as friendly competitors at their Sunday-night poker game. They have written episodes for Star Trek: Voyager and have contributed to Cinefantastique, Metro Boston, and ESPN: The Magazine. Van Vleet lives in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
