The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King: Inside the Richest Poker Game of All Time
by Michael Craig

Date Completed: June 30th, 2005

I saw this one at random at Barnes & Noble, and of course I was interested. Surprise, surprise, I'm interested in a book about poker. This one was easy to read since it focuses on stories and history rather than strategy. I knew some parts of it already, but some other stories were new to me. I still have a hard time imagining the amounts of money that were risked at these tables! This is definitely a good read for enthusiastic poker players.
