Gambling

AUTHOR TITLE COMMENTS
Alvarez, A. Poker: Bets, Bluffs, and Bad Beats A gorgeously illustrated, short book about poker as a way of life. It gave me a real feeling for the game and its players.
Asbury, Herbert Sucker’s Progress: An Informal History of Gambling in America Once again, Mr. Asbury really makes the past come alive. If you only read one book on 19th-century American gambling, make it this one.
Brunson, Doyle Poker Wisdom of a Champion Great insights into a poker player’s mind. This helped me understand Rosalind’s approach to life.
Brunson, Doyle
“Texas Dolly”
Doyle Brunson’s Super System: A Course in Power Poker Yes, betting on Seven-Card Stud really is that complicated.
Fabian, Ann Card Sharps and Bucket Shops: Gambling in Nineteenth-Century America A more academic look at 19th-century public attitudes towards gambling.
Harroch, Richard D.
and Lou Krieger
Poker for Dummies A great introduction, full of basics that other books assume you already know.
Longstreet, Stephen Win or Lose: A Social History of Gambling in America Good book. Unfortunately, it didn’t spend much time on the areas important to The River Devil.
