One of a Kind : The Rise and Fall of Stuey "The Kid" Ungar, The World's Greatest Poker Player

Nolan Dalla, Peter Alson, Mike Sexton


"Reader beware the seductive blue flame. To illuminate the triumphant yet scorching hideous forty-five years Stuey Ungar spent among us, Dalla and Alson have produced an acetylene torch of a book. There was no other way to write a story like this. One of a Kind is a lesson in no-limit hold'em as well as a terrifying pleasure."
--James McManus, author of Positively Fifth Street

"I knew Stuey Ungar well and played with him many, many times. He was on of the most remarkable characters to ever sit down at a poker table. One of a Kind not only brought him back to life for me, it vividly re-created a time and place that we'll likely never see again. For anyone interested in understanding and unraveling the legend of poker's most creative thinker and tortured soul, this is the real deal!"
--Doyle Brunson, two-time world poker champion and author of the legendary
bestseller Doyle Brunson's SuperSystem: A Course in Power Poker

"If you want an 'education' in the old-time gambling underworld, you can't do better than One of a Kind. Although you'll never want to live it, Ungar's life as drawn by Dalla and Alson, is riveting, haunting, and compelling. Ungar's legacy of genius, destroyed by indulgence, would seem absurd as fiction; as truth it is a gripping epic tragedy."
--Brian Koppelman and David Levien, screenwriters of Rounders
Rounders and Runaway Jury

"A well-written and well-researched study of the most naturally gifted and emotionally stunted card genius in the history of poker."
--A. Alvarez, author of The Biggest Game in Town

"Even though Stuey Ungar was perhaps the greatest poker player ever to live, his talent at card playing wasn't close to being his most compelling characteristic. Stuey was a little bit of a gangster, genius, madman, tragic hero, and cardsharp. Add it all up, as Dalla and Alson have done in captivating style, and you get one of the most unusual characters to ever appear on the Vegas scene."
--Andy Bellin, author of Poker Nation
