The first thing that might come to your mind is the following: What the heck is a poker office?

If you’re like most people, then you might think it refers to the office at the back of a poker room, where a poker room manager spends the majority of his or her time. This would be the logical assumption, but it would also be way off. If you want to know what The Poker Office is really about, you will find that information below.

Prior to revealing that information, I want every reader to know that The Poker Office is not my best poker book. That said, it’s not my worst poker book, either. It should be viewed as something fun to read while spending a day at the beach, while riding the train to work, or as something to listen to while on a road trip – the narrator for this book is excellent.

As far as the story goes, our protagonist is Peter Shelty, who is a degenerate gambler and pothead who just got dumped by his long-term girlfriend. He has hit bottom and is even contemplating suicide. His life is completely directionless (and in his opinion, pointless) until he contacts a seedy friend looking for job openings. That seedy friend leads him to The Poker Office, where Peter is shocked by what he finds, including unclothed beautiful young women.

This would seem like a positive, but Peter soon learns that these women are prizes for the poker tournaments opposed to money. To make matters worse, they’re being held against their own will. On top of that, The Poker Office is run by organized criminals, which leaves him no logical solution.

Peter falls in love with one of the girls, helps her escape, and is on the run. However, this is a flawed escape plan since he doesn’t cover all his tracks. With hit men on his tail and the woman he loves in mortal danger, Peter must come up with a solution that will leave no loose ends. Win or lose, Peter knows that taking a chance is better than looking over his shoulder for the remainder of his life.

The Poker Office is intended to be a fast-paced, fun, and entertaining. It’s not intended to be profound. Therefore, if you enjoy poker and you want to be entertained, go for it. If you enjoy, please consider leaving a review on Amazon. Believe it or not, only 0.5% of readers leave reviews, which makes them extremely valuable.

Thanks for reading!

If you love poker, then you're in the right place. My poker strategy books are written for the beginner-intermediate player, and many readers have told me that these strategies have helped them turn a profit. My books are easy to understand and written from a macro perspective on how to win as a poker player. You will also find an entertainment angle. Regardless of what level poker player you are, you might enjoy A Fishy Poker Tournament, The Dark Side of the Felt, and The Poker Office. These are poker adventure books, not poker strategy books.
