In 1998, best-selling biographer Anthony Holden spent one year living the life of a professional poker player. His mesmerizing account of that year went on to become a classic of the genre, an inspiration to innumerable poker players and poker memoirists who followed. Big Deal is his story of days and nights in Las Vegas, Malta, and Morocco, mingling with the greats, sharpening his game, perfecting his repartee, and learning a great deal about himself in the process. Poker, Holden would insist, is a paradigm of life at its most intense, a gladiatorial contest that brings out the best as well as the worst in people. The heroes and eccentrics of the poker world stalk the pages of this remarkable book, along with all the hair-raising, nail-biting excitement of the game itself. An award-winning journalist, Anthony Holden is also the author of several best-selling biographies of such figures as Shakespeare, Tchaikovsky, Laurence Olivier, and the Prince of Wales. His most recent book is the sequel Bigger Deal: A Year Inside the Poker Boom.
