The 12 Biggest Poker Stories of 2014: Honorable Mention

pokerupdate-smallWell-known poker writer Steve Ruddock recounts the most memorable poker stories he’s come across throughout the year, with Huntington Press’ The Moneymaker Effect by Eric Raskin making the list.

2014 could very well go down as the Year of the Poker Book. Two incredible narratives were released in 2014, as was a tournament poker strategy book written by one of the game’s all-time greats.

The first “must-have” book is Eric Raskin’s The Moneymaker Effect. Raskin’s tale went behind the scenes of the 2003 World Series of Poker, drawing on first-hand accounts from the people involved.

Raskin talked to everyone from players to ESPN’s production team to Binion’s employees to get a feel for what took place in 2003, and why that moment ignited the Poker Boom.

In my opinion, Raskin’s book is an all-timer; a top-ten poker book that every serious poker enthusiast has to have on their bookshelf.
