Description The lives of five poker players are put under the microscope in this tale of a weekly poker game that takes place in the basement of an upscale London restaurant. This is no penny ante game: the stakes are as high as the betting limits as the players gamble with their lives. Marber explores with a patient tenacity issues of addiction, self-denial, compulsion, father-son relationships and the darker aspects of the male psyche.
