Most of us are already accustomed to having our favourite game demonised in the mainstream media. Every time poker makes the news, it's treated by uninformed writers with a series of broad generalisations, always guilty without the opportunity to establish innocence.
Every now and again however, we're privileged with a writer who bothers to get into the nuts and bolts of things; who hears the other side of the story, and offers up a balanced treatment of the subject matter. When we get really lucky, the writer can also weave a compelling narrative. Farhan Shah is such a writer, and he's just had "The Millionaire Button Clickers" published in this month's edition of Esquire Singapore.
