Poker ringleader plans 2014 memoir

Bloom

– Molly Bloom, who ran high-stakes, exclusive poker games involving some of Hollywood’s biggest names, playboys and sports stars, will have a memoir coming out next year.

It Books, a division of HarperCollins, announced Tuesday that Bloom’s book is tentatively scheduled for publication in the summer of 2014. The book is not yet titled.

The publisher says the book will take readers inside the poker matches that Bloom ran in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Las Vegas “until it all came crashing down around her.”

Bloom says in a statement that for seven years she “reigned supreme” over the secret world of underground, high-stakes poker.

She was named along with “Spider-Man” star Tobey Maguire and other celebrities in a web of lawsuits seeking to reclaim more than $4 million won during unlicensed poker matches.
