Very Simple: Buy Book, Win More Money

A few months ago I was sitting in my computer room playing poker and I got an email from Doubleas asking if I would help him with some art for his book.

He explained the concept to me, and I had just gotten a fancy new flatbed scanner and I was dying to try it out, so I jumped on the idea. I scanned in some stuff, played with it in Photoshop and sent him my results. He liked them and had some ideas for changes, mostly just size and orientation. He gave me the basic dimensions he wanted to fill, and I thought "that sounds like the size of a page in a book."

I had no idea I was working on the cover. I'm very flattered that he asked me to contribute anything to such a meaningful endeavor. But the cover? I'm speechless.

If you've read Doubleas' blog at all, you know he knows his shit. His posts on pressure points were instant classics. I apply concepts I learned from Doubleas EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY no-limit. WITHOUT EXCEPTION.

It is virtually guaranteed that if you read this book, it will improve your no-limit holdem game.

Great job on the book.
How about a last longer bet for the World Series of Poker?? Helmuth, Gordon, Ivey, Raymer, Moneymaker, Brunson, Etc. I am betting on Greg Raymer for the men and Jennifer Tilly for the women.
