    Who were the Ship It Holla Ballas? Arguably the most successful poker crew of all time, they took advantage of the online poker boom to win tens of millions of dollars before most of them were old enough to set foot inside a casino. Then they did what any red-blooded teenagers with mountains of cash and no responsibilities would do: They partied like rock stars, transforming themselves from Internet nerds with zero life skills into legends, at least in their own minds.

    Craig says: "Pokers on teh interwebz."

    If you could sum up Ship It Holla Ballas! in three words, what would they be?

    Fascinating, Real, Casual


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    good2cu as the main protagonist. In a way his story tells the dreams of thousands of college aged kids in the poker boom.


    Have you listened to any of James Patrick Cronin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Nerds get rich playing on the internet.


    Any additional comments?

    If you know what it means to short stack 50NL or have ever read the 2+2 forums you will love this book. During the poker boom anyone could regularly pull up live tables of these guys playing for tens of thousands of dollars and more. This is the story of how they got there and how the poker boom and subsequent bust evolved.
