best gambling fiction books

Playing off the Rail , though I don't think it's fiction. Not a novel, not at all about stereotypically seedy underworld characters, but certainly a great read about the few people smart enough to find an edge against the house and profit handsomely from it. Pushkin Queen of Spades. Anyway, Auster's The Music of Chance is about traveling poker players and probability. I can't recommend it strongly enough. Also, while not about gambling specifically, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas does paint a very vivid picture of the end of the Las Vegas glory days. Once again my entirely healthy obession with gambling narratives has griped me in its neon claws. Tags gambling.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} What novels would you reccomend? Not a novel, sorry, but this was intriguing. But and so, a friend of mine recommended Henry of Atlantic City to me a while ago and it sounds great. Playing Off the Rail, cited by dobbs above, is excellent but it's non-fiction. Tim Powers, Last Call … more or less. Still a nice read. His life was I'll think on this a bit more, and may post a few more suggestions later. Apologies if you already know it, but I'm just dying to recommend the obvious, so I will: Dostoyevsky's "The Gambler," written to, natch, pay off gambling debts! Walter Tevis' The Hustler is a good example of what I'm looking for. Divisidero by Michael Ondaatje isn't one of his best books, but it's heavy on the gambling. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Happy site news: today we welcome our 2 new mods travelingthyme and loup! You mentioned "The Hustler. Casino Royale is about Bond playing baccarat in a casino. The MIT blackjack book I'm sure someone here will provide the name. About the novelist and his brother blowing their inheritance on the gambling boats in Mississippi. Finally, if you haven't already seen it, be sure to check out Robert Altman's early 70's classic, California Split. Not about gambling, but about stock speculation, which some would argue is similar: Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. It is a flawed movie, but it expertly captures the spirit of gambling better than any other piece of fiction save The Hustler or Dostoyevsky's The Gambler. I'm talking of Croupier , a favorite of mine. They're all fantastic, you should definitely try to find them. Thought it had originally been a novel, but apparently not. Seconding Last Call. Bob the Gambler by Frederick Barthelme. To be clear, does it need to be fiction? Millions of dollars changed hands in each session. Of course just as I get snippy I also suggest a novel that's already been said. For me, gambling is about finding an overlay and exploiting it. OK, a few more non-fiction favorites: The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King: Inside the Richest Poker Game of All Time by Michael Craig is a fascinating look at a very big poker game well, series of matches that took place a few years ago between Texas Banker and mathematics dilettante Andy Beal and a shifting coalition of top Vegas poker pros. It's a good read but a better story, if you follow me. Even for someone as unversed in poker as myself, the detail re the intricacies of the game wasn't enough to turn me off, while the historical account of the World Series and some of its better known names as well as the recent influence of much younger players able to train with software instead of honing their chops in back rooms was absolutely fascinating. It's embedded in a spy thriller but the casino sections of Casino Royale might be of some interest. Does The Grifters count? Stung , the book on which the film Owning Mahowny was based. Worth tracking down if you read the book and like it. I'm especially interested in wagering that takes place outside of casnio or cardroom, though that is not a strict requirement. It's supposed to be a true story but some of it just seems too good to be true. Much of it with the message that you can't cheat an honest man. Whilst not strictly about gambling per se - that is, it's not about casino games or betting, the theme is about a man whose every decision in life is determined by the throw of a dice. The Big Con: the story of confidence men , written in about giving a history of the short con into the long con. Related is the 'True Story' behind the novel: Double Down. Centered around dice. Awesome read. This thread is closed to new comments. G Broat. In that vein, Michael Lewis' recent book about the economic crash, "The Big Short," might be the best gambling book I've ever read. The Diceman by Luke Rhinehart. Oscar and Lucinda , obviously. They don't make 'em like that any more. The Master Mechanic by I. Titanic Thompson was the real life sharp behind Damon Runyon's fictional Sky Masterson, and he was the master of the proposition bet and he never bet on anything without an edge, skill or otherwise. Can you reccomened a gambling novel? Stop suggesting nonfiction and movies, those are wrong. It's a fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, a legendary speculator around the turn of the century. There was a rematch of sorts after the book was published, and Craig wrote about those encounters for Bluff magazine a few years ago. But it's the low-profile sport of darts that gets Tom into real trouble, in this raucous, raunchy thriller.
