Further, I like best those stories that focus on the gambler and the gambling, rather than sidelining them as part of crime/mystery story. Walter.

There was a rematch of sorts after the book was published, and Craig wrote about those encounters for Bluff magazine a few years ago. They're all fantastic, you should definitely try to find them. Anyway, Auster's The Music of Chance is about traveling poker players and probability. 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. 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. 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. I'm especially interested in wagering that takes place outside of casnio or cardroom, though that is not a strict requirement. What novels would you reccomend? Stop suggesting nonfiction and movies, those are wrong. Tim Powers, Last Call โ€ฆ more or less. Tags gambling.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Pushkin Queen of Spades. Divisidero by Michael Ondaatje isn't one of his best books, but it's heavy on the gambling. But and so, a friend of mine recommended Henry of Atlantic City to me a while ago and it sounds great. His life was I'll think on this a bit more, and may post a few more suggestions later. I can't recommend it strongly enough. Oscar and Lucinda , obviously. But it's the low-profile sport of darts that gets Tom into real trouble, in this raucous, raunchy thriller. Of course just as I get snippy I also suggest a novel that's already been said. They don't make 'em like that any more. It's a fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, a legendary speculator around the turn of the century. This thread is closed to new comments. 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. Stung , the book on which the film Owning Mahowny was based. 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. Not a novel, sorry, but this was intriguing. The Diceman by Luke Rhinehart. Can you reccomened a gambling novel? Millions of dollars changed hands in each session. About the novelist and his brother blowing their inheritance on the gambling boats in Mississippi. Not about gambling, but about stock speculation, which some would argue is similar: Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. To be clear, does it need to be fiction? The Big Con: the story of confidence men , written in about giving a history of the short con into the long con. The MIT blackjack book I'm sure someone here will provide the name. Walter Tevis' The Hustler is a good example of what I'm looking for. You mentioned "The Hustler. Does The Grifters count? I'm talking of Croupier , a favorite of mine. Thought it had originally been a novel, but apparently not. Bob the Gambler by Frederick Barthelme. It's supposed to be a true story but some of it just seems too good to be true. Seconding Last Call. The Master Mechanic by I. It's a good read but a better story, if you follow me. Related is the 'True Story' behind the novel: Double Down. 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. Awesome read. Casino Royale is about Bond playing baccarat in a casino. It's embedded in a spy thriller but the casino sections of Casino Royale might be of some interest. 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. For me, gambling is about finding an overlay and exploiting it. Centered around dice. Playing off the Rail , though I don't think it's fiction. G Broat. Worth tracking down if you read the book and like it. Much of it with the message that you can't cheat an honest man. Still a nice read. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Happy site news: today we welcome our 2 new mods travelingthyme and loup! In that vein, Michael Lewis' recent book about the economic crash, "The Big Short," might be the best gambling book I've ever read. Once again my entirely healthy obession with gambling narratives has griped me in its neon claws. Finally, if you haven't already seen it, be sure to check out Robert Altman's early 70's classic, California Split. Playing Off the Rail, cited by dobbs above, is excellent but it's non-fiction. 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!
