The Biggest Bluff

ABOUT THE BIGGEST BLUFF

From the New York Times bestselling author of Mastermind and The Confidence Game, a journey into the world of high-stakes poker – and questions of what role luck plays in our lives, and what it truly means to take control of our own destinies.

Due out in 2019 from Penguin Press, The Biggest Bluff follows Maria’s immersion in the world of poker, from novice to professional, under the tutelage of one of the greatest players in the game, Erik Seidel. But this is not a book about poker. It, rather, an exploration of the role chance plays in our lives, and how we can learn to play our best game even in the face of mounting odds. How do the skills learned at the poker table translate to the skills required to live a better, more thoughtful and, ultimately, successful life? The Biggest Bluff isn’t about how to play poker. It’s about how to play the world.
