Overview
 Is it morally permissible to plunder a drunken player at the poker table? In a game of bluffing, are all deceits acceptable? Is it wrong to play against a pathological gambler? Are there any real right and wrongs within poker other than violations of the rules? The first of its kind, this book explores the moral dimensions of playing poker for money in a detailed discussion of applied ethics. Topics include the moral standing of bluffing, collusion versus "soft play," the problem of players staked by backers, and "Why Kant Kan't Play Poker."
