about

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 "Hollywood’s poker princess" who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all.

Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world—an insider’s story of excess and danger, glamour and greed.

In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a twentysomething petite brunette from Loveland Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game Hollywood had ever seen—she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, few were invited to play.

Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly’s game became the game for those in the know—celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exclusive restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the world’s most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her.

Molly’s Game is a behind the scenes look at Molly’s game, the life she created, the life she lost, and what she learned in the process.

Molly Bloom grew up in Loveland, Colorado. She attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, majoring in political science. For several years Molly organized one of the largest high-stakes poker games in the country. She currently lives in Los Angeles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! What a great book about a young woman doing what it takes to get to where she wants. She lived through so much in such a brief amount of time. I couldn't put this book down and now I can't wait to watch the movie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read! Puts you in Molly's shoes as she traverses Hollywood's underground Poker scene. She rubs shoulders with movie stars, atheltes and business moguls. But's not all sunshine and rainbows as her crazy life takes a toll on her body-and that's before things get really messy. The movie got me to read the book and both are stellar. #indigoemployee

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great read!! I really enjoyed the audiobook after having watched the movie. It filled in some of the details that weren't in the movie. I truly admired her grit and ambition, how badass she was to achieve what she had in a men's world! She also didn't hold back in calling out all the assholes who treated her badly!!
