From the Publisher"Holden is the top writer in pokerdom."
— Martin Amis
"A remarkable odyssey — part Damon Runyon, part Dostoevsky . . . His insights into the peculiar alchemy of character and fate that draws writers to poker turns his book into a high-stakes psychological thriller."
— Vanity Fair
"Poker, as Anthony Holden astutely points out, is a lot like life. This idea informs his very funny book, with its priceless descriptions of hands, bluffs, and fellow players."
— Los Angeles Times
"Mr. Holden writes with extreme grace and wit . . . [Big Deal is one of the] best books on poker."
— The New York Times
"An entertaining tale, made all the more so by Holden's smooth prose and gift for self-deprecation."
— The Washington Post
