Re: "history from a poker perspective" - Malmuth/Carrasco

Just realized this forum existed!! And that is one hell of a topic!

I strongly recommend changing the language a bit though. For example, don’t mention “square root”...that’s not cool...and a cool topic deserves cool treatment.

(this entire forum needs to move away from “nerd”)

Hi Hal:

The issue you mention about the standard deviation is handled a little later in the book.

Best wishes,
Mason

Re: "history from a poker perspective" - Malmuth/Carrasco

Was just looking over the table of contents and I was surprised by the breadth of history that is covered. From the title I imagined a Vegas-centric history of poker and this doesn't look like that at all. Looking forward to picking it up when it comes out.

Hi Frenbar:

My co-author, Antonio Carrasco, is a Ph.D. historian who teaches at the University of Alicante in Spain. And thanks to him, we were able to include a wide variety of topics. For instance, before we started working together, I never heard of Pope Joan or Prince Don Carlos.

Best wishes,
Mason

Mason, few things:

Would you please post the “In the Beginning” portion of the book here?

It looks like your book would serve as a great gift to the family and friends of poker players.

Have you ever thought about having someone videotape you at a park doing sports and eating sandwiches?

Hi Erin:

The "In the Beginning" chapter is about David and Goliath and argues that Goliath, since he was an old giant -- someone who suffers from giantism -- didn't have a chance. I suspect you think that it's something a little different.

I think you're right that it would be a great gift and would go well on a coffee table. We feel that's it's an interesting read which lots of people would enjoy and also learn something from it, and there are lots of pictures in the book.

As for me being videotaped, I don't think that's very realistic.

Also, over the next year, we will run a few more excerpts in our magazine. Perhaps this would include the "In the Beginning" chapter.

Best wishes,
Mason
