There's a Place in the World for a Gambler

At least for poker players, right now that place is Las Vegas. (Ordinarily it wouldn't be; there are more and better cardrooms in Los Angeles.) The World Series of Poker has started. Preliminary bracelet events and satellite games started April 21. The final event runs from Saturday, May 22, through Friday, May 28.

My friend Alan Bostick is keeping a diary of his experiences at WSOP. He's a very good poker player and a superb writer. The diary offers an honest, funny, suspenseful record of what it's like to play poker with the big boys and girls.

Take a look. It's kept me on the edge of my seat.
