For this week’s new book, we recommend Vegas or Bust by Johnny Kampis. It tells the true story of the author, who in 2016 rented a van to travel to Las Vegas with his wife and two children to play in several World Series of Poker events, including the famous Main Event.
The story begins in 2006 when Johnny cashed in the WSOP Main Event by finishing 770th out of 8,773 players. Over the next few years, he played a few low buy-in tournaments in his spare time. But in 2016, he decided to return to Las Vegas to get his revenge at the Main Event. This time he is traveling with his family and we can read about this fun road trip in the book.
I don’t want to tell you how you feel about finding the answer yourself, but I will give you no doubt that he cashed in both events at the 2016 WSOP. All the details of the trip, the races he entered, anecdotes and interviews are included in the recommended works. As the book concludes, Campis devotes an entire chapter to providing useful advice for those planning their first trip to the city that never sleeps.
You can buy this book in 2 formats on Amazon.com. The advantage of the Kindle edition is that it can be easily read on a computer, tablet or mobile phone.
