I read this book on recommendation from five fingers and obviously from the photos in it the author paid Ungar for the rights to write a sympathetic biography, although he died before the book was published! Undoubtedly Ungar was a selfish and flawed individual with an addictive personality, not uncommon in geniuii in a particular field (ref Gazza) bet also undoubtedly the greatest texas holdem player ever. Moral of the story, avoid class a drugs and keep the betting under control.
ps. had to laugh when someone asked Paul Merson " if you were a betting man, who would your money be on" on sky sports news the other day...
From reading the book it sounds like bookmaking is still illegal in a lot of states in the usa, what would have happened if betfair had been around for Ungar to use.
