The Curse of Online Poker – Coming Soon

David E. Gates has played poker and gambled on sports and other games, for most of his adult life.

In The Curse of Online Poker, he details what led to his involvement with Texas Hold ‘Em, the results he achieved, the various pitfalls and experiences, both positive and negative, and shares his recommendations to new and seasoned poker players alike.

Honest and realistic, this unique look at gambling in its various forms, and in particular with playing poker, is sure to ring true to many people that indulge or over-indulge in the pursuit of getting rich at the turn of a card!
