Pulls you straight into the action, so you immediately feel like you re there watching Written really well with drama, humor, action it engages you immediately and doesn t ease up Tense moments An exciting true story that s thrilling to read. Nice book with real poker I love the semi realistic point of vue To be read by poker players as much as curious people.

If I could give this book 3.5 stars I would, but I refuse to contribute to its already bloated Goodreads score by rounding up to four.This is an entertaining book There are times Tyler Nals makes some astute and hilarious observations That said, it roams far too often Nals goes off on tangents almost as often as he gives horrible poker advice It is clear Nals knows a thing or two about poker He gives some great pointers, but as someone who has been a professional poker player since age 18 If I could give this book 3.5 stars I would, but I refuse to contribute to its already bloated Goodreads score by rounding up to four.This is an entertaining book There are times Tyler Nals makes some astute and hilarious observations That said, it roams far too often Nals goes off on tangents almost as often as he gives horrible poker advice It is clear Nals knows a thing or two about poker He gives some great pointers, but as someone who has been a professional poker player since age 18 I m 27 now I laughed heartily at some of the things he said Unfortunately, the only way to become a great poker player is to lose money playing for between five and seven years This is remarkably off Most professional poker players have a study period of around 1 2 years I m considered an extremely slow learner because it took from ages 15 to 18 You chose a life that has surrounded you with losers and degenerates Therefore, that s what you have become It s about the company you keep Many poker players are professionals in other fields who can afford to lose the money they choose to gamble with Most presidents in the United States were card players You really have to be deep in the worst games on Earth for someone to make this statement On the topic of table selection What table has huge pots Don t choose that table The table where money is flowing is usually the EXACT table you want Blake, knew the same secret about the 3 6 Limit Game He played three times per week and probably averaged about 300 per session There is no chance anyone is making 50 big bets per session reliably from a limit poker game As much as I wanted to explain to these people that I was hustled, not beaten PsstTylerbeing hustled is being beaten I planned on playing so much poker that my room and board would be taken care of thanks to comps Poker players rarely get comped a room, mostly because poker players don t make any money for the casino It certainly would never happen at the stakes he was playing.I would chuckle along with this, and enjoy what the book is An amateur s portrayal of what he thinks it is to be a pro However, it irks me that people read this book and think this is what professional poker is about Many of us have degrees in other fields We ve turned to poker, mostly the online variant, because it allows us to work less than bankers hours from home and spend a great deal of time with our families While I respect Nals for writing this, his constant and definitive protestations that, this is what poker players are like got on my nerves.Also, I played in underground games for years on both sides of the United States, and yeah I played with drug dealers and shotguns on the table That said, those games are few and far between Most home games are just a bunch of guys who want to play cards You need money to play poker, so often the players come from the suburbs The author would have had to have been seeking these experiences out for this to be loosely based on real events Again, the book is a fine read It is entertaining I can almost never read about poker these days and enjoy myself, because I ve read so much in the field, but this tome gets the job done I just wish the author doubled down on this is fiction Then it d be a bit silly, but fine Instead, you feel the author coming through on each page, as in, this is based on my life This is how it is You need to know That said, if you re interested in poker, I believe this book is available through Kindle Unlimited It s a fun ride, although it deviates too long at times The characters are interesting and well written The action is engaging The dialogue snaps along You ll enjoy yourself with this recommended read Likenon fiction regarding pokerThink it was interesting but I personally like to real non fiction poker books I think the author needs a good editor.
