Synopsis

He was a legend before he was of legal age. Stuey Ungar dropped out of high school to become an underground cardtable sensation, eventually taking out every top ginrummy player on the east coast. Bankrolled by the Genovese crime family, Ungar went on to win the World Series of Poker a record three times. Then his luck began to run out. Nolan Dalla was commissioned by Ungar in 1998 to pen his story, resulting in hundreds of hours of taped interviews and conversations. The result is the startling tale of a man who won at his game and lost control of his life. Notorious for gambling every single dollar in his pocket, Ungar won an estimated $30 million in his lifetime, but when he was found dead in a Las Vegas motel at the age of fortyfive, he had only $800 in cash on his person, with no bank account or home address.
