Product description

Review

"A bloody good read." - Poker Life

"[Alson's] transparent prose is ferociously honest and deceptively simple." -- Matthew Klam, author of Sam the Cat and Other Stories

"A compelling look inside the often tortured lives of professional gamblers." -- Mason Levinson, Bloomberg News

"Literary, smartly written." -- The Poker Gazette

"Alson is at his best in recounting pivotal hands from his tournament experiences. He expertly builds suspense while explaining how he observes his opponents for clues and calculates his chances of winning a hand." -- St. Petersburg Times

"Without question, one of the finest poker books ever written." -- James McManus, bestselling author of Positively Fifth Street
