A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY AARON SORKIN, AND STARRING JESSICA CHASTAIN, IDRIS ELBA, KEVIN COSTNER AND MICHAEL CERA

The true story of the 26-year-old woman behind the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker game in the world

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 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.

  • ‘Dishes on the covert world of underground gambling and reveals how celebs and billionaires really behave on their downtime behind closed doors’ New York Post
  • ‘I’m reading Molly Bloom’s almost unbelievable memoir of her days running one of the world’s most exclusive poker games. The amounts of money are obscene, the stakes are high, the characters are slime balls… and it’s all true’ The Pool
