Friday Book Club - For Richer, For Poorer

Fancy a book group outing to the casino? Maybe you should first read this week’s Friday Book Club pick, Victoria Coren’s For Richer, For Poorer: A million-dollar love affair with poker.

When Victoria Coren was a kid her brother dealt her in to a game of poker. When she grew up she won the European Poker Tour.

This is the story of that million-dollar win and of Coren’s twenty- year obsession, from the seedy charm of illegal cash games to the wonderland of Las Vegas. There is friendship and there is money; loneliness, heart-break and defeat. And there is that magical, dreamlike tournament when the cards are all falling Coren’s way.

Victoria Coren has regular columns in the Observer and Guardian newspapers. She’s been playing poker for nearly 20 years, and won the London EPT / European Championship in 2006.

Reading notes are available here, as a prompt for your reading group discussions.
