Synopsis

Poker is hotter than ever. Here is the inside story of the colourful pros who live and breathe high-stakes betting 24 hours a day, whether in a televised tournament, buying into a private game of no-limit Texas Hold 'Em in the smoky room of a LA casino, or making spontaneous GBP30k bets on the front nine of the golf course. Poker pros are not like us! They have instincts, abilities - not to mention a taste and tolerance for risk - at which most of us can only marvel. The book profiles the game's fifteen most influential players, from the legends of the West Texas school - Puggy Pearson, World Series of Poker winner Doyle Brunson and Amarillo Slim - to the new crop, men such as Daniel Negreanu, who live in MTV-style 'cribs' and hold court with the likes of Leo DiCaprio. Though they came to poker in different ways, all were prodigies - discovering their talent and passion for gambling at a very young age. Based on first-hand interviews and unprecedented access to the players, they reveal their early days, career ups and downs and gambling style, plus the secrets of their winning moves.
