Molly's game From Hollywood's elite to Wall Street's billionaire boys club, my high-stakes adventure in the world of underground poker

Molly Bloom

Book - 2014

When Molly Bloom was a little girl growing up in a small Colorado town, she watched her brothers win medals, ace tests, and receive high praise from everyone they met. Molly wanted nothing more than to bask in that glow a little herself, so she pushed herself too--as a student, as an athlete. She was successful but felt like she was always coming from behind. She wanted to break free, to find a life without rules and limits, a life where she didn't have to measure up to anyone or anything--where she could become whatever she wanted. Molly wanted more, and she got more than she could have ever bargained for. In Molly's Game, Molly Bloom takes the reader through her adventures running an exclusive high-stakes private poker game. Her... clients ranged from iconic stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck to politicians and financial titans so powerful they moved markets and changed the course of history. With rich detail, Molly describes a world that until now has been shrouded in glamour, privilege, and secrecy, one where she fearlessly took on the Russian and Italian mobs--until she met the one adversary she could not outsmart, even though she had justice on her side: the United States government.
