“That rare thing, a truly authentic novel about poker and the poker world” (A. Alvarez, author of The Biggest Game in Town).
 
Joey Moore is happy to be a big fish in a small pond. He is easily the best poker player from his suburban enclave in Maryland to Washington, DC. He craves the nightlife and can’t imagine being tied down to a desk job or saddled with the responsibilities of most men of his age.
 
But all that changes when Joey is offered a high-paying job as a casino boss, a gambling opponent commits suicide, and a new romance is derailed by his ex-girlfriend’s pregnancy. At a crossroads, Joey will have to decide whether to fold or go all in on everything unexpected that life has to offer.
 
“The novel masterfully sucks you right in, at the very first page, into its world. It doesn’t matter then, if the only thing you know about Poker is it begins with a ‘P’ . . . It is a smart and gritty, coming-of-age-novel . . . An engaging narrative which climaxes with brisk bits of domestic and professional melodrama.” —9Stacks
 
“Many readers consider . . . King of a Small World to be the best of its kind—a poker-themed novel that offers an authentic, gritty portrait of ‘the live grind.’” —PokerNews
 
“An immensely enjoyable debut.” —Publishers Weekly
