From Moneymaker to Brunson, we count down the top 5 poker players that are as lethal with a pen as they are with chips
1. The Godfather of Poker by Doyle Brunson
Penned by Doyle Brunson and journalist Mike Cochran, Doyle’s new book comprehensively documents his life for the first time. Some of the anecdotes about the violence of the early poker scene seem so far-fetched that they could only be real.
2. For Richer, for Poorer: A Love Affair with Poker by Victoria Coren
Unlike the other players here, Vicky Coren is actually a very talented writer, and she brings all of her wit, flair and passion to this account of her life on and off the poker felt.
3. Check-raising the Devil by Mike Matusow
Mike Matusow’s life story is every bit as intense as you might envision as he talks frankly about drug abuse, prostitutes, the events that led to his stint in jail and the Absolute Poker and UB cheating scandals.
4.Moneymaker by Chris Moneymaker
Chris Moneymaker’s book tells the story of a kid who stumbled into poker and went on to become one of the most influential players of all time.
5. How I Raised, Folded, Bluffed, Flirted, Cursed, and Won Millions at the WSOP by Annie Duke
Written by Annie Duke the year after she won a WSOP bracelet and $2m in the Tournament of Champions, this book unsurprisingly centres on her path to those impressive wins.
