Présentation de l'éditeur
The extraordinary life of the best poker player who ever lived
When Stuey 'The Kid' Ungar took his first World Series of Poker title, one journalist asked him what he would do with the money. His answer: 'Gamble it'.
Stuey grew up among the hoodlums and wiseguys of New York's Lower East Side. A pint-sized high-school drop out who never worked a day in his life, never had a bank account or paid a penny in taxes, he lived to gamble and became the world's most feared card player. From the multi-million dollar fortune he won and lost, the addictions that consumed him, and one of the greatest phoenix-from-the-ashes comebacks of all time, this is the story of a Las Vegas legend.

I'm very thankful that Stu agreed to do this book before he passed away. He began speaking with the author only a few months before he died, and this book took several more years before it was completed. It was put together extremely well.
He led a very unusual life. If you told me this was a fictional book, then I'd tell you they went overboard with the story, as much of it is just unbelievable. As it is, all of it is true and therefore mind-boggling.
Stu should know that allowing his life to be laid out in this book is very helpful. It leaves us with a better of understanding of his accomplishments and his downfalls. It also allows us to get to know him, in the only way possible, through this book. Drugs robbed him, his family, and all of us enthusiasts of the greatest mind to ever play poker or gin.
His story will speak to those who aren't into cards as well. We all want a story that turns out rosie in the end, but here all that is left is what was. Long Live Stuey "the Kid" Ungar, may you finally have the fulfillment that you sought time and time again in this life.
