U.S. presidents and poker: a NY Times article

There's an article in NY Times today entitled "Harry Truman, Five-Card Stud, and the Cold War." Talks about U.S. presidents, their interest in poker, and how poker might have informed some of their political strategies. Article is by Michael Beschloss.
