Poker is America?s national card game, and its popularity
continues to grow. Nationwide, you can find a game in progress
everywhere. If you want to play, you can find poker games on
replicas of 19th century riverboats or on Native American tribal
lands. You can play poker at home with the family or online with
opponents from around the world. Like bowling and billiards before
it, poker has moved out from under the seedier side of its roots
and is flowering in the sunshine.
Maybe you?ve never played poker before and you don?t
even know what a full house is. Poker For Dummies covers the
basics. Or perhaps you've played for years, but you just
don?t know how to win. This handy guide will help you walk
away from the poker table with winnings, not lint, in your pockets.
If you?re a poker expert, you still can
benefit ? some of the suggestions may surprise you,
and you can certainly learn from the anecdotes from professional
players like T.J. Cloutier and Stu Unger.

Know what it takes to start winning hand after hand by exploring
strategy; getting to know antes and betting structure; knowing your
opponents, and understanding the odds. Poker For Dummies
also covers the following topics and more:

Poker games such as Seven-Card Stud, Omaha, and Texas

Setting up a game at home

Playing in a casino: Do's and don'ts

Improving your play with Internet and video poker

Deciphering poker sayings and slang

Ten ways to read your opponent's body language

Playing in poker tournaments

Money management and recordkeeping

Knowing when and how to bluff

Poker looks like such a simple game. Anyone, it seems, can play
it well ? but that's far from the truth. Learning
the rules can be quick work, but becoming a winning player takes
considerably longer. Still, anyone willing to make the effort can
become a good player. You can succeed in poker the way you succeed
in life: by facing it squarely, getting up earlier than the next
person, and working harder and smarter than the competition.
