Publisher's Summary

You know those guys who play poker for millions of dollars on television? I'm not one of those guys. Instead, I risked my life on a nightly basis playing in underground poker games on Long Island and in Charlotte. This story is about how I managed to survive, but just barely. 

The Dark Side adventure continues with A Darker Side of the Felt.

Great Read!!! Very Entertaining

I am very happy that I downloaded this book! From beginning to end I was entertained! As a small stakes poker player I was able to relate to some of the situations and found other situations in the book hilarious. The book was about poker but was definitely not your typical poker book that bores you to death with to much hand analysis! I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who is into poker, but not looking for your typical drawn out strategy book.

Another great book

I didn't know what to expect when I started this book. This is the 4th book I've listened to from Tyler and they have all been great. From an honest story standpoint this is the best so far that I've listened to. The Perfect Range is still the best strategy book with Poker Blog and Poker Notes being good advice/strategy too. There are a lot of ups and downs in this book and you really feel for Tyler. Like any good story though the ending isn't as bleak as you might assume. It's a must read.

Great Read/Listen!

Yet another great book by Tyler Nals! Guy’s got a way with words and a crazy fun story. I won’t say too much because I hate spoilers and won’t do that to you. Read/listen and enjoy!

Great Story

Strong writing. It kept me interested. Still need to find a copy to get it signed...I guess we'll see how my book hunting skills are, I could have it amazon style but the hunt is always so much more fun.

Surprised Me

This surprised me. I really liked it. Stories about playing poker in underground games. I bought the other two: The Darker Side of the Felt and The Burning Felt.

Poker players will dig this.
