Description

Shuffle up and deal. It's poker night, and the card game with a long and colorful history is at last shedding its shady skin and emerging as the hippest game in town. Millions of television viewers are tuning in weekly to the World Poker Tour on the Travel Channel and the World Series of Poker on ESPN. Poker books now number in the hundreds with one about the 2000 World Series of Poker making its way onto the New York Times best-sellers list in 2003. In the Poker 2005 Calendar, readers will discover which game is the favorite of pro poker players (the intense and unpredictable no-limit Texas Hold 'em), what hand the Cincinnati Kid held in the 1965 Steve McQueen poker movie (full house with aces high and still he lost the game), or what a prop player is (a paid employee of the poker room or casino who moves to whatever game the management thinks needs extra players to make a better game). This is no bluff. Poker is the hot new trend and this calendar is a royal flush.show more
