The true story of 'Hollywood's Poker Princess' who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all
When Molly Bloom was a little girl in a small Colorado town, she dreamed of 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. She ultimately got more than she ever could have bargained for.
In Molly's Game, she takes you through her adventures running an exclusive high-stakes private poker game catering to Hollywood royalty like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, athletes, billionaires, politicians, and financial titans. With rich detail, Molly describes a world of glamour, privilege, and secrecy in which she made millions, lived the high life, and fearlessly took on the Russian and Italian mobs, until she met the one adversary she could not outsmart: the United States government.
It's the story of how a determined woman gained - and then lost - her place at the table, and of everything she learned about poker, love, and life in the process.
