    Blood Aces

    Yall need to read the book blood aces.

    It's a biography of Benny Binion and how he started with bootlegging and gambling and took over El Paso, Dallas, then Las Vegas.

    Written by a Dallas morning news writer.

    Bought on iTunes and flying through it.

    Great read.

    I know this isn't the book club but it's a gamboolcentric read so I came here for the degen crowd to read until football season steals back our free time.

    I appreciate this post and will check this out.

    I was a bookie for 4 years and won more money on the other side of these bets than I thought imaginable.

    I am fascinated with the industry and study it quite a bit.

    Some very prominent Austinites were clients in my portfolio.


    I know how big that this can get, how quickly....just as I have seen how bad it can get, even quicker, for those that can't control themselves.

    I would love to sit down over some beers and hear some of those stories.

    Enjoy the read.

    Statesman had a write up on it yesterday and thought it seemed like it might be pretty interesting, sounds like I'll have to give it a try.

    How long of a read is it? Cowboys Full was a great book but took me forever to get thru.

    Reading it on iBooks. 1900 pages on an iPhone but I don't know how many real pages that is equivalent to.

    It's enjoyable reading however. Seems to move quickly

    [csb]My dad knew him well enough to eat chili (Benny always sat at the end of the bar in a little café in the casino) and shoot the $#@! with him whenever dad was in Vegas[csb]

    Thanks for the heads up, I ordered the book for him
