'How to Win...' chronicles author Pat Walsh's journey from a hapless shmuck all the way to a high stakes gambler and, in all likelihood, back to a hapless shmuck again. His expedition begins from playing poker online through to playing in the world series - the pinnacle of the game and the dream of 150 million American's who play poker every week. Covering the online poker boom, the rise of the televised game and the seedy underbelly of the glamourous lifestyle, Walsh revels in living out his dream. His wife, however, is not as understanding...This is a book for every poker fan or tournament viewer who ever thought, 'I could beat those pros if I only had the money, the time and a little practise'. Pat Walsh aggressively tests this assertion armed with only high hopes, a lucky hat and a pot of his wife's money. 'How To Win...' is living out the dream for the players around the world - A story of juggling family life, work and chasing the dream of becoming a gambling pro and, ultimately, failing at all three. Told with a captivating charm and a humourous narrative, 'How To Win...' promises to be just as addictive as Poker itself.
