Yes, that's the thought rambling around in my head. Who were the lesser-known gamblers, who were gambling at the same time as the better known gamblers in the Old West?
I'd love to have your book, and need to buy it while it can be had, but when depends on when I think I have the "extra" money to.

I have a question, in your "rogues history gallery" of very interesting, but little known, gambler's (mostly cheats) who worked for and with Soapy, in what States in the Old West did they opperate? If you don't mind saying.

I'm pretty sure that there's lots of information in books about the well-known gamblers, that I have no clue about, but right now I'm interested in the lesser-known, and mostly unknown aquaintances of well-known gamblers.

Thanks, Jeff!
