Poker Nation : A High-Stakes, Low-Life Adventure into the Heart of a Gambling Country Paperback

Description

Andy Bellin is a pretty good poker player. Over the ten years he's been playing semi-pro, millions of dollars have passed through his hands.

He's the kind of guy who can walk away from the table $5000 up.

He's also the kind of guy who can drop $9000 - on a single hand.

On his way to a master's in astrophysics, Andy Bellin made the fatal mistake of falling in love with poker.

Too many years down the line, he's resurfaced from a life spent in high-rolling casinos and low-rent dives to tell us the tale.

Part memoir, part expos-, Poker Nation is a mesmerising journey through the ups and downs of being a gambler, a trip to a world where the only thing 'weirder than a poker player is the guy sitting next to him'. -At once a witty history of the world's most popular card game, a how-to manual that really will make you a better player, and the story of one man's obsession, Poker Nation will leave you sharper, wiser, and maybe even a little richer.
