James McManus writes about sex, drugs, murder, Amarillo Slim, the history of cards, and the psychology of gambling. He does all of this using the vocabulary of no-limit Texas hold’em. Mick recommended this non-fiction book to me; I am quite grateful that he did. It does not hurt any that he is a White Sox fan— McManus, that is. Mick is a Cubs fan. I do not hold that against him.
