What a wild ride . . .

Andy Beal, a billionaire Texas banker decided that Poker had all the elements of one-on-one competition: negotiation, decision making, bluffing, and reading people. Being successful at business he was adept at all those skills. Because of that he challenged the world's best poker players to the world's highest stakes heads up matches.

This is the story of those professional gamblers coming together to make a team of players, backers, investors and how Andy Beal devised a way to make himself even money against the best in the world.

It's awesome.
