9780557500079: Lost Vegas: The Redneck Riviera, Existentialist Conversations with Strippers, and the World Series of Poker

Lost Vegas: The Redneck Riviera, Existentialist Conversations with Strippers, and the World Series of Poker. . . Las Vegas lures you to shed moral responsibility and piss away your money on indulgences like decadent food, entertainment, gambling, and sex. If you don't enjoy these pastimes, then what's the point of visiting the land of compromised values? Where else can you get a cheap steak, crash a Mexican wedding, get cold-decked in blackjack by a dealer named Dong, play video poker for thirteen straight hours, drink pina coladas out of a plastic coconut, bum a cigarette from an 85-year-old woman with an oxygen tank, speed away to the Spearmint Rhino in a free limo, get rubbed by a former Miss Teen USA, puke in the back of a cab driven by a retired Navy SEAL, snort cheap cocaine in the bathroom at O'Sheas, and then catch a lucky card on the river to crack pocket aces and win a poker tournament? Only in Las Vegas.

About the Author:

Paul 'Dr. Pauly' McGuire is a writer originally from New York City. He has lived in Las Vegas, NV on and off since 2005. He covered the World Series of Poker and numerous other major poker tournaments for Tao of Poker, LasVegasVegas.com, Bluff Magazine, Poker Player Newspaper, Fox Sports, Poker News, and Poker Stars Blog. His poker travels have taken him to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Atlantic City, Connecticut, Spain, Denmark, Monte Carlo, Australia, New Zealand, France, Sweden, the Netherlands, Hungary, Mexico, the Bahamas, Argentina, Costa Rica, Uruguay, and the UK.

Review:

Pauly gives us his unique take on the bright lights and fast money of the Vegas we all know, as he illuminates the dark corners we don't, or don't want to, see with his driving prose, original voice and impeccable eye for detail. --Joe Speaker

Strippers, killers, cheats, drug fiends, and idiots rub shoulders from page to page with the honest working class, dreamers, family men, the quasi-religious, and the invisible. --Brendan Murray

Pauly has the chameleon-like ability to be the fly on the wall, or the eye of the hurricane when it comes to the crazy stuff that goes on in the poker world. --John Caldwell
