This is a larger-than-life true tale of how a few frat brothers from Montana turned a weekly poker game in a dive bar into one of the most lucrative online companies in history. Based on extensive insider interviews, Ben Mezrich - best-selling author of “The Accidental Billionaires and Bringing Down the House” - chronicles the creation of AbsolutePoker.com. He documents the company’s initial operations in the jungle paradise of Costa Rica where its founders lived an outrageous lifestyle of girls, parties and money; as well as the gray area of U.S. and international law in which they created an industry.

Impossible to put down, “Straight Flush” is an exclusive, never-before-seen look at one of the wildest business stories of the Internet age.
