From the New York Times bestselling author of The Accidental Billionaires and Bringing Down the House—the sources for the films The Social Network and 21—comes the larger-than-life true tale of a group of American college buddies who brilliantly built a billion-dollar online poker colossus based out of the hedonistic paradise of Costa Rica. One problem: the U.S. Department of Justice was gunning for them. . . . Based on extensive insider interviews and participation, acclaimed author Ben Mezrich's Straight Flush tells the captivating rags-to-riches tale of a group of University of Montana frat brothers who turned a weekly poker game in the basement of a local dive bar into AbsolutePoker.com, one of the largest online companies in the world, on par with some of the behemoths of the Internet. At its height, Absolute Poker was an online empire earning more than a million dollars a day, following savvy business strategy and even better luck. Its founders set up their operations in the exotic jungle paradise of Costa Rica, embracing an outrageous lifestyle of girls, parties, and money. Meanwhile, the gray area of U.S. and international law in which the company operated was becoming a lot more risky, and soon the U.S. Department of Justice had placed a bull's-eye on Absolute Poker. Should they fold—or double down and ride their hot hand? Impossible to put down, Straight Flush is an exclusive, never-before-seen look behind the headlines of one of the wildest business stories of the past decade.

Straight Flush is the true story of a group of University of Montana frat brothers who turned a weekly poker game in the basement of a local bar into one of the largest online poker companies in the world. At its height, the group's online empire was bringing in revenues of over a million dollars a day. The industry they launched grew so huge so fast, and in such a grey area of US and international law, at first it was never really clear whether their actions were legal or criminal. From setting up their operations in Costa Rica, to their efforts at building a veil of legitimacy in Vancouver; from embracing a hedonistic lifestyle of girls, drugs and money to becoming some of the richest people in the world; from engaging in operations against their competitors that sometimes escalated into near all-out wars to the legal battles that finally resulted in one of them heading to prison and another living life on the run – Straight Flush is an exclusive look behind the headlines of one of the biggest stories of the past decade.

This is a complete, comprehensive Texas Hold'em book. It is far, far more analytical of the subtleties of a specific form of Poker, Texas Hold'em than the usual poker books. It doesn't just claim you can win at poker, it provides the skills needed to dominate the game. Any table, any opponent. Pros don't play with a game plan, they understand the game better than amateurs. Reading this book is like playing 500,000 hands of Texas Hold'em because it explains it all. Well worth the investment at ten times the price. Read and profit from it. NOTE: There was a card corruption in the latest version with the new custom cards (the ones with skulls) in the PDF starting at page 60ish. It did not raise alarms when uploaded. I'm sorry Google didn't catch it and neither did I. If you paid for a pdf book with corrupted cards please show me your receipt and I will personally send you one with the old cards until I can get the latest SNAFU corrected. The current PDF has the old cards. You can get the epub version, which works on lean pub but for some reason Google won't approve, elsewhere... NOTE2: I resolved the problem no help from Google. The current version has correct cards. ISBN: 9780993819704
