So you want to play poker.

Maybe it's the challenge. Maybe it's the cash. Maybe you're turned on by guys in hoodies and sunglasses. Whatever the reason, if you're a girl - or guy! - who wants to learn poker, then this book is handier than your high school cheat sheet.

Learn everything from insider poker lingo (bluff! checkraise! snapcall!) to fancy winning plays with the help of easy-to-read mini-chapters and quizzes. Most poker books read like a math textbook. This one reads like Cosmo.

The only poker book that teaches card playing strategy and how to bluff your boyfriend, A Girl's Guide to Poker will make you the belle of the ball - or the cardshark of the casino.


There are more ways to shuffle a card deck than there are atoms on Earth (80,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 combos, to be exact). And almost as many poker books have been written.

This book is different.

It’s not your high school math textbook, and it’s certainly not your dad’s old school Texas Hold ‘Em guide. It’s fun. It’s simple. It’s quick! It’s poker made easy, a poker book for people who don’t play poker. Told with female flair and girlish glam, A Girl’s Guide to Poker teaches the ins and outs of the game with style, sophistication, and moxy.

No woman has ever won the World Series of Poker Main Event, even though first prize is several million dollars and a glitzy diamond bracelet. Ninety-five percent of the competitors are men (why they’d want a $50,000 bracelet, I will never know). That’s because seeing women at poker tables are like flopping a set or making or a flush[1] — it happens, but don’t count on it.

This book aims to make that change.
