J.C. Cody, who wrote the screenplay for “The Poker House,” is an author who has never been known for writing quickly or succinctly. However, his early, wacky, pot-busting novels show that he is no slouch when it comes to an entertaining and fun story line. Read on to learn more about this award winning author.
This book begins with a night of gambling in Las Vegas. The characters in the story are eight friends, all of whom have one thing in common – they’ve all taken to playing poker. Jake Cody is a freelance writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, who has taken to the game, and is an advocate for card playing. Grace, the richest character in the book, is a successful artist who once attempted to get into a game of poker.
Later in the story, we learn that Grace, the artist, has been trying to find a way to become wealthy in a unique way by participating in a card game. This opportunity appears when she helps her friend, an aspiring poker player, secure an invitation to a poker tournament in another city. The tournament is being played by a house of four, and it will be one of the four with the biggest payoff.
It’s an exciting tale, and the main character, Grace, does not disappoint. We soon realize she’s involved in a major international poker scandal as she helps her friends arrange the tournament. The stakes are high for the players, and the story takes a thrilling turn when someone realizes that there are going to be a lot of players at the tournament who don’t know how to play the game. The way to win in poker, the players realize, is to choose the strongest player among them, and then surround him or her.
The writers of the book were not aware of the fact that most people think poker is a game of luck and skill. They wanted to make a unique game that involved some skill. In this case, as in many others, the result was a unique story.
To keep the casino intrigue entertaining, the book presents the poker house, owned by Jack Beatty, as a fantasy place where all the players think they are in Las Vegas. This creates some interesting characters in a world where reality is distorted by fantasy.
The poker game at the top of the book is one of the most thrilling things you will ever read about. As the players begin to select each other and surround their “go to guy” (as they call him), they bring new life and energy to the poker game. After he wins the tournament, he, along with his friends, move on to the next game, and it’s the same thing over again.
The rest of the book revolves around the final event at the poker house. This exciting climax is well paced and produces tension in every scene, as the characters try to figure out who will become the next “go to guy.” The tension grows until the book comes to its shocking conclusion.
The book, which was published by Basic Books, is set at the top of the Big Wheel, a wheel named after a player at the top of the card game, “Texas Hold’em.” “Big Wheel” is one of the most famous poker names in the world, and is referred to as the game of the century by the book’s characters.
A close second is the game of “aces raise-queens check-sucks,” which is another popular version of the game. The only problem is that not everyone knows about the game. A player is said to be an ace if they correctly identify a set of cards.
Of course, there is a reason that J.C. Cody called the book “Big Dick is Good,” and it makes sense. The conclusion of the book is great fun, as you will never think the story is coming to a close until it does.
At last, this novel is a well written story about a group of friends and their struggle for wealth and power, while playing an exciting game of poker. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in enjoying a book about poker. poker and its history.
