Molly's Game: From Hollywood's Elite to Wall Street's Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker by Molly Bloom

Into the Wild

Read Molly's Game: From Hollywood's Elite to Wall Street's Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker Online Free - When Molly Bloom was a little girl growing up in a small Colorado town, she watched her brothers win medals, ace tests, and receive high praise from everyone they met. Molly wanted nothing more than to bask in that glow a little herself, so she pushed herself too—as a student, as an athlete. She was successful but felt like she was always coming from behind. She wanted to break free, to find a life without rules and limits, a life where she didn't have to measure up to anyone or anything—where she could become whatever she wanted.

Molly wanted more, and she got more than she could have ever bargained for.

In Molly's Game, Molly Bloom takes the reader through her adventures running an exclusive high-stakes private poker game. Her clients ranged from iconic stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck to politicians and financial titans so powerful they moved markets and changed the course of history. With rich detail, Molly describes a world that until now has been shrouded in glamour, privilege, and secrecy, one where she fearlessly took on the Russian and Italian mobs—until she met the one adversary she could not outsmart, even though she had justice on her side: the United States government.

Molly's Game is an incredible coming-of-age story about a young girl who rejected convention in pursuit of her version of the American dream. It's the story of how she gained—and then lost—her place at the table, and of everything she learned about poker, love, and life in the process.

3 Had To Check This Out Stars * * * I recently saw a trailer for a film that caught me by surprise. Aaron Sorkin was involved and it has an all star cast. I was so impressed by what I had seen... I had to do some investigating. When I dug a little into the person the story was about... I got a rush...

Molly Bloom is an ultra-motivated young woman who is used to achieving personal goals by overcoming obstacles. A member of a seemingly wholesome and similarly motivated family, she left Colorado for the west coast where by indenturing and ingratiating herself to the right people, she became hoste...

Molly Bloom’s story is eerily familiar to Piper Kerman’s (Orange Is the New Black). The exception being Molly owns her misstep, nonetheless I’m confident Molly’s book deal, and I’m sure a movie or TV series of her story will be on the horizon all enabling her to erase her debts and manage a lucra...

This is the story of an attractive, sheltered, spoiled young woman who grew up in Colorado in a family where success was expected not pursued. Even though she made the US national ski team she appeared to live in the shadow of her other siblings and it didn't seem good enough for her father. Arri...

This was a great story. The Poker Princess totally has won me over. Her life makes for a very entertaining read. Between the action of the game and the celebrity names involved, Molly’s Game is one hell of a ride. Molly starts off with a life of privilege. Her father pushes her and her siblings, s...

Fun and interesting book, I was engaged the entire read and could not wait to pick it up again...I love this underground world, so I overlooked any shortcomings in literary prowess, and took it for what it was...a story that will make a great adaption to a movie (Nov 2017 release). I hope the mov...

Incredible story, and I can't wait to watch Jessica Chastain's portrayal of Molly Bloom. (view spoiler)[The reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because the reader is left not knowing how it all ultimately ends up for Molly. At the end of the book, Molly became a convicted felon and is awaiting her se... (hide spoiler)]
