The Gambler Book Review

Stung , the book on which the film Owning Mahowny was based. Millions of dollars changed hands in each session. Divisidero by Michael Ondaatje isn't one of his best books, but it's heavy on the gambling. Awesome read. Seconding Last Call. For me, gambling is about finding an overlay and exploiting it. To be clear, does it need to be fiction? But and so, a friend of mine recommended Henry of Atlantic City to me a while ago and it sounds great. Stop suggesting nonfiction and movies, those are wrong. Playing Off the Rail, cited by dobbs above, is excellent but it's non-fiction. What novels would you reccomend? Of course just as I get snippy I also suggest a novel that's already been said. Bob the Gambler by Frederick Barthelme. Casino Royale is about Bond playing baccarat in a casino.

Happy site news: today we welcome our 2 new mods travelingthyme and best gambling fiction books It's embedded in a spy thriller but the casino sections of Casino Royale might be of some interest. I'm talking of Croupiera favorite of mine. Playing off the Railthough I best gambling fiction books think it's fiction.

Also, while not about gambling specifically, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas does paint a very vivid picture of the end of the Las Vegas glory days.

The MIT blackjack book I'm sure someone here will provide the name. Pushkin Queen of Spades. Once again my entirely healthy obession with gambling narratives has griped me in its neon claws. The Big Con: the story of confidence menwritten in about giving a history of the short con into the long con.

Tags gambling.

Even for someone as unversed in poker as myself, the detail re the intricacies of the game wasn't enough to turn me off, while the historical account of the World Series and some of its better known names as well as the recent influence of much younger players able to train with software instead of honing their chops in back rooms was absolutely fascinating. There was a rematch of sorts after the book was published, and Craig wrote about those encounters for Bluff magazine a few years ago. Much of it with the message that you can't cheat an honest man. The Diceman by Luke Rhinehart. They're all fantastic, you should definitely try to find them. Not about gambling, but about stock speculation, which some would argue is similar: Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. They don't make 'em like that any more. Not a novel, not at all about stereotypically seedy underworld characters, but certainly a great read about the few people smart enough to find an edge against the house and profit handsomely from it. Still a nice read. Thought it had originally been a novel, but apparently not. The Master Mechanic by I. This thread is closed to new comments. In that vein, Michael Lewis' recent book about the economic crash, "The Big Short," might be the best gambling book I've ever read. Whilst not strictly about gambling per se - that is, it's not about casino games or betting, the theme is about a man whose every decision in life is determined by the throw of a dice. OK, a few more non-fiction favorites: The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King: Inside the Richest Poker Game of All Time by Michael Craig is a fascinating look at a very big poker game well, series of matches that took place a few years ago between Texas Banker and mathematics dilettante Andy Beal and a shifting coalition of top Vegas poker pros. It's a good read but a better story, if you follow me. Titanic Thompson was the real life sharp behind Damon Runyon's fictional Sky Masterson, and he was the master of the proposition bet and he never bet on anything without an edge, skill or otherwise. Apologies if you already know it, but I'm just dying to recommend the obvious, so I will: Dostoyevsky's "The Gambler," written to, natch, pay off gambling debts! Worth tracking down if you read the book and like it. Centered around dice. I'm especially interested in wagering that takes place outside of casnio or cardroom, though that is not a strict requirement. About the novelist and his brother blowing their inheritance on the gambling boats in Mississippi. Not a novel, sorry, but this was intriguing. It is a flawed movie, but it expertly captures the spirit of gambling better than any other piece of fiction save The Hustler or Dostoyevsky's The Gambler. Can you reccomened a gambling novel? Related is the 'True Story' behind the novel: Double Down. Anyway, Auster's The Music of Chance is about traveling poker players and probability. Tim Powers, Last Call โ€ฆ more or less. Finally, if you haven't already seen it, be sure to check out Robert Altman's early 70's classic, California Split. His life was I'll think on this a bit more, and may post a few more suggestions later. Walter Tevis' The Hustler is a good example of what I'm looking for. G Broat. Oscar and Lucinda , obviously. It's a fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, a legendary speculator around the turn of the century. It's supposed to be a true story but some of it just seems too good to be true. I can't recommend it strongly enough. Does The Grifters count? But it's the low-profile sport of darts that gets Tom into real trouble, in this raucous, raunchy thriller. You mentioned "The Hustler.
