All In Book
Jonathan Grotenstein and Storms Reback
Subtitled as “The (Almost) Entirely True Story of the World Series of Poker” the book presents the story of the greatest tournament in the world—the World Series of Poker— from its humble beginnings in 1970 as a mere gathering of Texas road gamblers to its present status as a cultural phenomenon, attracting exhaustive national television coverage, legions of fans, and thousands of players.
All In is a no-limit look at the phenomenal transformation of poker from a vice hidden in shady back rooms into the hottest game on the planet. It takes an entertaining look at this unique experience, recounting its history through the breathtaking and sometimes brutal hands played at the Horseshoe’s tables. They introduce the colorful and seemingly fearless characters who have been lured by huge paydays—and the chance to play against the best in the world; including the legends Doyle Brunson, Amarillo Slim, Stuey “The Kid” Ungar, and Chris Moneymaker.
