NY Times to launch Poker column by McManus

via Editor & Publisher:

This Saturday, The New York Times launches a weekly column on poker written by James McManus, the Chicago novelist who wrote a non-fiction book about how he won $250,000 at the 2000 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.

The column, simply titled "Poker," will appear weekly in the Saturday Sports section of the Times. The newspaper promises the column will "cover the world of poker including its lore, lingo, home games, games held online, and major tournaments." McManus will write for both aficionados and the newcomers attracted to the game by the many television shows devoted to Texas Hold 'Em.
