Bigger Deal--#26 finished

It took longer than I thought it would, probably because it was really only exciting in spurts, but I finished Bigger Deal.  It is a poker book by Anthony Holden who skirted around the WSOP before and spent a year doing smaller tournaments as well and wrote a popular book about it.  Well once the poker boom began he figured it was time to redo the poker lifestyle.  It was interesting to see the names of the poker pros and some of the side things going on with them, like where invested, where aligned as far as poker websites and classes they teach.

Overall though just an okay book.  Has some good information for the poker player, where if you are not really smart best to just enjoy poker in your own home--no reason to loose money to the pros.  From reading this, I now have less desire to play poker online or in a casino at least right now.  Maybe a few years from now it might change but now no real reason to.

I only have one other book now that I am reading, Careless in Red by Elizabeth George.  So far kind of good, but a lot of confusing character names that I will have to keep straight.  I will be picking out a 2nd book but not right now--it is too late and I am kind of tired.
