Summary

Now a major motion picture.

Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world - an insider's story of excess and danger, glamour and greed.

Molly Bloom formed the most elite high-stakes poker game Hollywood had ever seen - she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in; few were invited to the table.

In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a 20-something petite brunette from Loveland, Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game in existence. Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly's game became the game for those in the know - celebrities, business moguls and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exquisite restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men and was privy to the world's most delicious gossip - until it all came crashing down around her and she lost everything.

Molly's Game is a behind-the-scenes look at Molly's game, the life she created, the life she lost and what she learned in the process.

mollys game

she certainly was honest and the insight into la's more seedy side was interesting and repugnant however she seems like a decent enough person and her story about grace was genuine, she got her head turned by illusion and has not really learned anything but it was a enjoyable book , best of luck molly you are a capable woman

Almost unbelieveble

This narrator is exceptionally good, and the story, which is true, at no time slacks.
I was held throughout.

What a woman!

Wow.. I'm on a bit of a streak of reading work by or about extraordinary women at the moment and this definitely fits the bill. Beautifully read and a fast-paced, interesting read - I got through this quickly.
