Scrolling the pages of a Hughes narrative is like lighting a lantern into the darkest recess of poker's subculture. [Hughes] brings the legends of the past and present to life and often provides the very best portrait of these unique, real-life characters of anyone on record.-Nolan Dalla, media director, World Series of Poker, best-selling author and columnist for Card Player"Johnny Hughes's poker stories are a national treasure hilarious stories and colorful characters timeless classics the stuff of history one of my all-time favorite poker writers." -Iggy, a.k.a. Ignatius J. Reilly, the Blogfather of Poker, GuinnessandPoker.com"Told with authenticity and the knowledge that only a true road gambler could possess a book that you will love a highly enjoyable read." -Anthony Kelly, editor-in-chief, Player Europe magazine. Dublin."Cryptic, dark. Irrefutably unique. Elliptical euphemism and metaphor are (Hughes's) tools. Gambling folklore and parables abound. All told with a twinkle in the eye and one finger on the trigger ... Johnny writes evasively, challenging us to refute, compelling us to believe." -James Dodd, a.k.a. Tetuso, Bet-the-Pot.com. London.

From the Inside Flap:

Matthew "Slick" O'Malley has been a Texas road gambler for fifty years. He wants to teach his nephew, Dylan, everything about poker: its strategy, culture, language, history, pitfalls, songs, movies, books, gambling joints, and web sites. "Did you ever want to be anything other than a gambler?" Dylan O'Malley asked his uncle.. "There's no percentage in regrets, boy. To me, it's always been about time, not money. I found early on that I was up for about fifteen hours a week of hustling as a gambler. I have always watched everyone hurrying off to work. Not me." Dylan had saved $250,000 in poker winnings in two years. He said, "I love poker. I can't see going back to renting my life out by the hour. I can go anyplace I want all over the world and no-limit Texas Hold 'em will be there waiting for me. It's the purest form of freedom.". Texas Poker Wisdom, a novel, by Johnny Hughes
