Big Deal: One Year as a Professional Poker Player

Big Deal: One Year as a Professional Poker Player

Author: Anthony Holden


In 1990, British biographer (and former speechwriter for Prince Charles) Anthony Holden published Big Deal, a chronicle of his year as a professional poker player. Salman Rushdie called it "The best description of world-class poker we've been given." Big Deal, which has sold 250,000 copies worldwide, has been picked up by Celadon Films and the flick is on the production calendar for 2007. Tony's son, Joe, is doing the screenplay.
