Reading this book feels like one of the chapters of my life has come to an end. I began playing poker in college in 2002, right before the Moneymaker effect came into being. Yet, I was more enraptured by this young guy who didn't look much older than me, finishing 12th.

This is not a how-to guide to winning bracelets, nor is it meant to be a cautionary tale about the dange

Almost gave this book five stars. I believe it definitely holds its own and it's rightful place in the international poker community.

Really interesting. Kind of bleak and dark. Definitely does not shine a positive light on poker or poker players. Was a lot of fun to relive the poker boom days, though.
