From the Author: Introduction
This book is written for everyone to read: men and women of all ages, general readers all over the world.  I was too lazy to work and too nervous to steal so I became a West Texas road gambler and have sixty years of personal gambling history. I've been robbed by shotguns, pistols, and a lawyer with a ball-point pen. I shot over the head of a robber, and walked three different people out of my gambling joint with my barking iron. I was the original manager of the Joe Ely Band. One night while I was dancing at the legendary Cotton Club, I pulled my pistol out of my boot and fired a couple of humorous rounds into the ceiling. Being West Texas, no one called the law. I'm old enough now to share the secrets.

These critically-acclaimed, humorous, revealing memories are added to decades of research in this collection of stories and articles previously published in magazines, mostly in Europe.

Benny Binion got me a job for Bill Boyd playing poker on house money at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas when I was 21. I caught Titanic Thompson's son and a few more cheating, back in Texas. Both Johnny Moss and bridge-great, Oswald Jacoby have staked me to play bridge. We lost. I was arrested by the local police and the legendary Texas Rangers with some of the early gambling legends, and future World Series of Poker champions. I played poker half a century ago with Jack "Treetop" Straus, Bill Smith, Johnny Moss, Amarillo Slim, and Sailor Roberts, all world champs. Many of the outrageous characters in this book were people I knew very well.

This book tells a well-researched, history of America through the fascinating, larger-than-life, biographies of colorful gamblers, some famous, some not so famous: Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, Poker Alice, Lottie Deno, Nick the Greek, Johnny Moss, Benny Binion, Titanic Thompson, Arnold Rothstein, Minnesota Fats, Amarillo Slim, and so much more. The book has biography, cultural history, short stories, memoir, wisdom, philosophy, and psychology. This book is written to inform, but more importantly, to entertain! As Benny Binion said, "I'll tell you the truth, but I won't tell you everything."

Many of these articles and stories have appeared in Bluff Magazine, Bluff Europe Magazine, Player Ireland, TexasMonthly.com, Pokerati.com, TwoPlusTwo Poker Forum, and The Texas Observer. One of these stories won Honorable Mention in the 2012 Texas Observer short story contest.
