If you're searching for a little light reading designed to make you laugh over the forthcoming festive season (it'll take your mind off the impending economic gloom), then Tales of a Degenerate Poker Player should fit the bill.

Described as a 'colourful insight' into the world of poker, Derek Kelly serves up a succession of very funny tales, each of which revolve around his involvement with London's famous Gutshot Club.

The battle to keep the club open revolved around whether the club's supporters could prove that poker was a game of skill. To do this, Kelly joined forces with Barry Martin and a host of other 'poker degenerates' and opened the high-profile club. The Gutshot name derives from those lovely, but sadly rare, moments when you land the necessary middle card to make a straight and Kelly's persistence in challenging the law which would allow the club to remain open resembles the determination evident amongst players who know that card is comingÖ

Full of irreverent tales of famous poker players, gamblers, gangsters and a group of odd people who indulge in the "Devil's Diversion", this is a book with a serious theme, but one that is also certain to make you laugh.
