Positively Fifth Street: Murders, Cheetahs, & Binions World Series of Poker

Anybody read this. I'm mid way through and it seems like we've got part sex, part "how to", and part tournament. Read half of it yesterday and it's awfully tough to put it down. Maybe it's just me.

Overall its a pretty good book. I was a bit leery of some of the trial stuff he wrote about. I wonder if he'll do another book since the verdict got overturned. I liked it. Not as good as Alvarez's "Biggest Game In Town", but better than Holden's "Big Deal" or the "Poker Nation" book IMO.

P.S. I happened to be driving to Las Vegas the day the verdict came back. Listened on the radio while heading into town. So I was kind of interested in the case a little. But I still didn't quite get into his writing about it. May just be too harsh on people writng about trials.
