Reviews

Lee Jones, Author, Winning Low-Limit Hold'em, and Poker Room Manager for PokerStars.com: Roy and John have codified poker beautifully. I'm particularly delighted to see some long-needed changes (such as restrictions on players' right to see mucked hands). I would love to see all cardrooms and casinos standardize on this book as their rules; players, dealers, and staff would all benefit enormously. Linda Johnson, Tournament Director's Association, Cardplayer Cruises, World Series of Poker bracelet winner: Poker players everywhere owe Roy a debt of gratitude for this work. There's no money in a rule book. It invites people to argue with you and disagree with you. It is at its core a labor of love -- love of the game, and for the poker community. Tom McEvoy, Author, 1983 WSOP Champion: I have known Roy Cooke for about 25 years. He has been a pioneer in internet poker, and has made many contributions to the game over the years. This book on the rules of poker is probably his most valuable contribution yet. The poker world needs standard rules and this book is a vital contribution towards this goal. Jeff Shulman, CEO, Card Player Magazine: Roy Cooke has been a powerful force for integrity in poker. Poker needs standardized rules, and Roy Cooke's book is a giant step in that direction.


Author Information

Roy Cooke is generally acknowledged to be the most consistent hold'em player in the world in a career that spans over 30 years, and is a master of limit hold'em, having one of the best records over time at the middle limits. By his forty-fifth birthday, Roy had played some 60,000 hours of poker-sixteen years as a professional- from the Florida Keys to Puget Sound, from San Diego to New England, in bowling alleys, strip joints and private homes. But mostly he has played in the public cardrooms of Nevada, California and the Northwest. He has, since 1993, been a featured columnist for Card Player magazine. His first book, Real Poker, The Cooke Collection sold out. His second book Real Poker II, The Play of Hands is available from sellers of gambling books. He has three more books in development. He was a consultant to the first real-money Internet poker site. Roy lives in Las Vegas with his wife Misty and daughter Krystle. Roy and Misty have a successful real estate and mortgage brokerage business. John Bond is a retired attorney and free-lance writer with thousands of hours in both private games and public cardrooms. He has also run private games. His travel articles are regularly featured in the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. He is a former weekly newspaper editor and real estate columnist for the Miami Herald and has his Master's in Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Florida International University. He has taught Creative Writing at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Florida International University in Miami, and Journalism at Nova University in Fort Lauderdale. He brings to this effort knowledge of how laws and regulations are written. He is currently at work on a novel and screenplay set in the poker world. John lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with his wife, Jeannie Deininger, and their two shih tzus, Mookie and Riley.
