Miikka Anttonen started gambling when he was ten years old, when most kids were playing with Pokemon cards and PlayStations. Throughout his teens, he spent long nights at the library analyzing sports betting odds, resulting in many large wins - but on the flip side, his "hobby" also led him to drop out of high school. The Escape is a journal of those early days discovering gambling, awkward prom memories, growing pains, and most importantly that magical night when Miikka first found poker, and with it his destiny, at twenty years old, in the most unlikely of places.
Once A Gambler
Miikka Anttonen has been a high stakes poker professional for close to a decade, with $2.4 million in career winnings plus a world championship title under his belt. He's long been known as a top poker instructor, strategist, and writer, but under the surface he's lived a completely different life – one plagued by addiction, turbulent relationships, insecurity, and costly mistakes. In his three-part memoir, he's telling the whole story for the first time. Once A Gambler provides the reader with a unique view of both sides of the gambling world, as Miikka goes from dropping out of high school to jet-setting around the world, nights on park benches to $100,000 dollar paydays, and from being a sponsored professional who appeared on magazine covers and talk shows to becoming the black sheep of the entire poker-playing community. Once A Gambler has received acclaim from both readers and the media, currently holding a 4.2/5 average rating on the world's largest book review website, Goodreads. Short excerpts from Miikka's story have already been read over 3,000,000 times, and they've garnered widespread attention around the internet. Once A Gambler has frequented Amazon's bestseller lists ever since its release.
