The astonishing story of Benny Binion - a rip-roaring saga of murder, money, and the making of Las Vegas. Benny Binion was many things: a cowboy, a pioneering casino owner, a gangster, a killer, and founder of the hugely successful World Series of Poker. Blood Aces tells the story of Binion's crucial role in shaping modern Las Vegas. From a Texas backwater, Binion rose to prominence on a combination of vision, determination, and brutal expediency.

Benny Binion led an interesting life. I had watched the murder trial of his son Ted and thought I might find a book about his father interesting,but I was wrong. It didn't hold my interest. I have concluded that Benny had better luck than he deserved.
