Seventeen-year-old high school senior Shannon Card needs money. And lots of it. She's been admitted to Wellesley, but her dad just lost his job, and somehow she has to come up with a year of tuition herself. But Shannon's dream of making big bucks waitressing at the local casino, the Collosio, disappears faster than a gambler's lucky streak. Her boss is a tyrant, her coworker is nuts, and her chances of balancing a tray full of drinks while wearing high-heeled shoes are slim to none. Worse, time is running out, and Shannon hasn't made even half the money she'd hoped. When Shannon receives a mysterious invitation to join Aces Up, a secret network of highly talented college poker players, at first she thinks No way. She has enough to worry about: keeping her job, winning the coveted math scholarship at school, and tutoring her secret crush, Max. But when Shannon musters up the nerve to kiss Max and he doesn't react at all, the allure of Aces Up and its sexy eighteen-year-old leader, Cole, is suddenly too powerful to ignore. Soon Shannon's caught up in a web of lies and deceit that makes worrying about tuition money or a high school crush seem like kid stuff. Still, when the money's this good, is the fear of getting caught reason enough to fold? This fun, sexy, recession-proof story is a bubbly summer read with surprising depth—great for fans of Sarah Mlynowski. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Frank Luke, Jr., was an unlikely pilot. In the Great War, when fliers were still "knights of the air," Luke was an ungallant loner, a kid from Arizona who collected tarantulas, shot buzzards, and boxed miners. But during two torrid weeks in September 1918, he was the deadliest man on the Western Front. In only ten missions, he destroyed fourteen heavily-defended German balloons and four airplanes, a rampage unequaled even by the dreaded von Richtofen, and the second highest American tally of the entire war. Cocksure and constantly reprimanded, Luke was actually under arrest on the day of his final flight, but he stole a plane to join the fatal action that won him the first Congressional Medal of Honor awarded to a pilot. Blaine Pardoe retraces and refreshes Frank Luke's story through recently discovered correspondence. What emerges is a portrait of a life out of an "Old West" that was, by the late Teens, colliding with modernity. Frantic, short, and splendid, the life of Frank Luke, Jr. dramatizes the tragic intervention of an American spirit in the war that devastated Europe.

Seven-card stud is an extremely complex game. Deciding on exactly the right strategy in any particular situation can be very difficult. Perhaps this is why very few authors have attempted to analyze this game even though it is widely played. In 1989, the first edition of this text appeared. Many ideas, which were only known to a small, select group of players, were now made available to anyone who was striving to become an expert, and a major gap in the poker literature was closed. It is now a new century, and the authors have again moved the state of the art forward by adding over 100 pages of new material, including an extensive section on "loose games." Anyone who studies this text, is well disciplined, and gets the proper experience should become a significant winner. Some of the other ideas discussed in this 21st century edition include the cards that are out, the number of players in the pot, ante stealing, playing big pairs, playing little and medium pairs, playing three-flushes, playing three-straights, randomizing your play, fourth street, pairing your door card on fourth street, proper play on fifth, sixth, and seventh streets, defending against a possible ante steal, playing against a paired door card, scare card strategy, and buying a free card.

Soon to be a show on Hulu! Rights to develop Wild Cards for TV have been acquired by Universal Cable Productions, the team that brought you The Magicians and Mr. Robot, with the co-editor of Wild Cards, Melinda Snodgrass as executive producer. The action-packed alternate fantasy returns for a new generation, featuring fiction from #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin, Michael Cassutt, Melinda M. Snodgrass, Lewis Shiner, and more—plus two completely new stories from Kevin Andrew Murphy and bestselling author Carrie Vaughn. Forty years after the Wild Card Virus's release, the World Health Organization decides it's time to take a delegation of Aces, Jokers, politicians, and journalists on a fact-finding mission to learn how other countries are dealing with the virus that reshaped humanity. Leading the team is Gregg Hartmann, a senator with presidential aspirations and a dangerous ace up his sleeve. Joining him is a menagerie of some of the series' best and most popular Wild Cards, including Dr. Tachyon, aces Peregrine and Golden Boy, and jokers Chrysalis, Troll, and Father Squid. From the jungles of Haiti and Peru to the tumultuous political climate of Egypt, from a monastery in Japan to the streets of the most glamorous cities of Europe, the Wild Cards are in for an eye-opening trip. While some are worshiped as actual gods, those possessing the most extreme mutations are treated with a contempt that's all too familiar to the delegates from Jokertown. New alliances will be formed, new enemies will be made, and some actions will fulfill centuries-old prophecies that make ripples throughout the future of the Wild Cards universe.

This is a complete, comprehensive Texas Hold'em book. It is far, far more analytical of the subtleties of a specific form of Poker, Texas Hold'em than the usual poker books. It doesn't just claim you can win at poker, it provides the skills needed to dominate the game. Any table, any opponent. Pros don't play with a game plan, they understand the game better than amateurs. Reading this book is like playing 500,000 hands of Texas Hold'em because it explains it all. Well worth the investment at ten times the price. Read and profit from it. NOTE: There was a card corruption in the latest version with the new custom cards (the ones with skulls) in the PDF starting at page 60ish. It did not raise alarms when uploaded. I'm sorry Google didn't catch it and neither did I. If you paid for a pdf book with corrupted cards please show me your receipt and I will personally send you one with the old cards until I can get the latest SNAFU corrected. The current PDF has the old cards. You can get the epub version, which works on lean pub but for some reason Google won't approve, elsewhere... NOTE2: I resolved the problem no help from Google. The current version has correct cards. ISBN: 9780993819704

Xlibris website book description Although the term All In is usually used when a poker player bets all of his chips, the author has very cleverly applied the term to the actions of PJ Gould, in his quest for revenge. All In, is a fast moving novel that takes the reader on an exciting journey from the Middle East, through the cocaine jungle of Columbia South America, then to Las Vegas and ends up in New York in the boardroom of one of the largest companies in the United States. It is the story of PJ Gould, the adopted son of a middle class Jewish family from Philadelphia. When he learns he has a twin brother, Walter, who has been raised by the Lippincotts, one of the countries richest families in America, he realizes but for the luck of the draw, their situations could have been reversed. Although Walter Lippincott invites his twin brother to join him in the family business, PJ chooses instead to visit Israel after graduating from college. It is there he discovers his Judaism, and enlists in the Sayeret Matkal, Israels elite and most celebrated commando unit. The Sayeret Matkal is comparable to the US militarys Delta Force and is responsible for some of Israels high profile security missions. They also conduct highly sensitive assassinations, sabotage, and psychological warfare projects. PJ became an expert in all of these. He earned the reputation of the best in the business, and after leaving the Sayeret Matkal, he was recruited by the CIA. After fifteen years of performing political assassinations, he finally reached a point when he no longer wished to continue in the killing business. That was when he retired and moved to Las Vegas ,where he became a high stakes poker player. He played the game of poker the same way he lived his life. When he attempted to do something, he was all in. He never did anything half hearted. In poker, all in means you could be betting all of your money on the turn of a card. When he played this way, sometimes he won with the best hand. Other times he would win by bluffing the other players. After his twin brother and girlfriend are murdered gangland style, PJ vows revenge. Then when the Las Vegas police department warns him not to get involved, he explains to them that he intends to goAll In. There is no way they can prevent him from taking revenge. In life like in poker, sometime, you have to go ..all in. The story takes the reader on a roller coaster ride from Las Vegas to New York, and from there to Chicago and back. You will meet Anita, his brothers widow, Joey Sconsi a would be wise guy, and Joseph Cantelli, an old world Mafia Don. You will be introduced to Tozzi, the hit man, and Sid Mastro, the unlucky ex-con who finds himself in the middle of an ill conceived murder plot. The characters will jump off the page and keep you wondering what will happen next. All In is a must read.

Righteous jive for all you weedheads, moochers, b-girls, gassers, bandrats, triggermen, grifters, snowbirds, and long-gone daddies. Much of the slang popularly associated with the hippie generation of the 1960s actually dates back to before World War II, hijacked in the main from jazz and blues street expressions, mostly relating to drugs, sex, and drinking. Why talk when you can beat your chops, why eat when you can line your flue, and why snore when you can call some hogs? You’re not drunk–you’re just plumb full of stagger juice, and your skin isn’t pasty, it’s just caf? sunburn. Need a black coffee? That’s a shot of java, nix on the moo juice. Containing thousands of examples of hipster slang drawn from pulp novels, classic noir and exploitation films, blues, country, and rock ’n’ roll lyrics, and other related sources from the 1920s to the 1960s, Straight from the Fridge, Dad is the perfect guide for all hep cats and kittens. Think of it as a sort of Thirty Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary for the beret-wearing, bongo-banging set. Solid, Jackson.

Dear Aspiring Poker Tournament Winner, Do you regularly play in No-Limit Hold'em tournaments? Do you want to get to the final table more often? Then this book is for you! $10,000 TV tournaments that last for days require very different winning strategies than much faster paced tournaments that last for hours. Most of us never play in the televised extravaganzas. Instead, we play regularly in No-limit Hold'em tournaments that have buy-ins of $40 to $1,000. Many tourney entrants never win money. A few savvy players know that small tournaments can be fun and profitable if you know exactly how to play them. Hand-by-hand, I will reveal why these players make more than their fair share of final tables--and how you can join them. You'll learn: • How to win despite a run of bad cards • How to assess good-value tournaments and avoid bad ones • How to play when you are short-stacked • How to build a big stack and use your chips as a weapon • The vital importance of position in tournament play • When and how to change pace as the blinds and antes increase Some of the conventional advice about tournament play is just plain wrong. Success requires more than a desperate attempt to survive and wait for big cards. So if you want a chance to feel the thrill of a big payday at your next tournament, buy this book now! I'll see you at the final table.
