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

Andy Bellin

"Quite simply, a royal flush of a book!" - George Plimpton

Journalist and poker fanatic Andy Bellin takes readers on a raucous journey into the shut-up-and-deal world of professional poker. From basement games to the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, you'll look over his shoulder as he learns to count cards, read a legendary play's body language, hand in there when the chips are down, and take his beating like a man. Even if you don't know the difference between a flop and a river card, Belling keeps you in the game with his portraits of colorful players, dreamers, hustlers, and eccentrics who populate this strange subculture. Along with learning what goes on behind the scenes in illegal poker clubs, you'll get great advice on how to play Texas Hold'em, today's game of choice for big-money players.

"Entertaining and accessible." - USA Today

"A mixture of memoir, sociological study, and instructional manual... The book brings us news of a world most of us are unlikely to know." - The New Yorker

"Breezy, informative...[Bellin] knows his way around the poker table and knows how to tell a good story." - Philadelphia Inquirer

"Bellin's love for the game is contagious, and Poker Nation is a sure winner." - Time Out (New York)
