Author Information

John Bond is a raconteur. A recreational poker player with nearly 15,000 hours of play, about half in private games. He has collaborated with Roy on his CardPlayer columns since the beginning. A retired attorney, among various other accomplishments he is a real estate developer, PADI Course Director (instructor of Bond and Cooke 241 SCUBA instructors), USCG licensed commercial boat captain, and a licensed pilot and realtor. A former newspaper editor, he has taught writing at a variety of institutions including Nova Southeastern University and Florida International University, Trinity College Dublin, the University of British Columbia and University College London. He writes travel features for the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, is a former Miami Herald columnist and has a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. John is working on a series of mystery stories set in the world of private poker games, the first of which-T-bird-appeared in the recently released mystery anthology Miami Noir, and which has been selected as one of 2006's best mystery stories. He is also marketing a completed novel and screenplay set in the poker world. He lives near the ocean in Dania Beach, Florida with his wife Jeannie Deininger and their two shih tzus. Roy Cooke started playing poker against professional competition at the age of 15, sneaking into cardrooms in the Seattle area. Since then he has played over 60,000 hours of poker all over the world, but mostly in the casino cardrooms of Las Vegas. He is generally recognized as one of the best middle-limit Texas Hold'em players in the world, and certainly the most consistent. Roy has been a featured columnist for CardPlayer Magazine for since 1992. He is a regular contributor to PokerBiz, the poker industry magazine. His first book with John Bond, Real Poker: The Cooke Collection, a collection of his columns, completely sold out. Real Poker II: The Play of Hands is in its second printing. Cooke's Rules of Real Poker is widely accepted as the standard in poker rules, the modern Hoyle. Two more Real Poker collections: The Best of Cooke and More Play of Hands, are forthcoming. Roy was the Cardroom Manager of the first real money Internet cardroom, and has been a consultant to many in the Internet poker business. He designed many of the anti-collusion protocols that are standard in the Internet poker industry today. He speaks at industry conferences both about marketing and about integrity issues. He has become the foremost spokesman for integrity efforts to protect players in the game generally and the Internet game particularly. He has also been a leading advocate of a centralized national poker association encompassing players, the industry and the media. Roy belongs to a number of community groups, including Toastmasters, where he is President of the Summerlin, Nevada chapter. He lives in Las Vegas where he and his wife Misty own a successful real estate brokerage. They live on a golf course with their daughter Krystle and three dogs.
