Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The larger-than-life true tale of how a few frat brothers from Montana turned a weekly poker game in a dive bar into one of the most lucrative online companies in history

ased on extensive insider interviews, Ben Mezrich—bestselling author of The Accidental Billionaires and Bringing Down the House—chronicles the creation of AbsolutePoker.com, including the company's initial operations in the jungle paradise of Costa Rica where its founders lived an outrageous lifestyle of girls, parties, and money; and of the gray area of U.S. and international law in which they created an industry. Soon, the U. S. Department of Justice was gunning for them. . . . Should they fold—or double down and ride their hot hand? Impossible to put down, Straight Flush is an exclusive, never-before-seen look at one of the wildest business stories of the Internet age.
