When I was at the bookstore I spent about a half an hour reading through 52 Ways To Cheat At Poker
It's ridiculous how easy it is to pull off. So much that despite knowing what to look for after reading it, I wouldn't want to be in a situation to call someone out for it in such an environment.
I stick to games amongst my friends and the cheap tourney's at the casino.
