An entire chapter is devoted to the World Series of Poker, including hands from the 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, and 2003 Main Events as well as hands from other bracelet events in 1994, 1995, 2002, and 2003. Other WSOP hands appear in other parts of the book.
If you like this type of story, Steve Rosenbloom's "The Best Hand I Ever Played" is full of them (52+ hands from 52 players).
If you're not a fan of bad beat stories, you'll be disappointed that they're not segregated into an easily skippable chapter.
