Publisher's Summary

Victoria Coren Mitchell's gripping poker memoir now available for the first time in audio.

In September 2006, Victoria Coren Mitchell won a million dollars on the European Poker Tour. For Richer, for Poorer tells the story of that victory, but also of a 20-year obsession with the game. It is a journey which has taken Victoria from a secret culture of illegal cash games to the high-stakes glamour of Las Vegas and Monte Carlo, and brought with it friendship, laughter, and money, but also loneliness, heartbreak and defeat. With disarming honesty, Victoria lays all of this bare. For Richer, for Poorer also tells the story of the poker revolution. How did this cult card game, populated by a small community of colourful and eccentric players, move from the back streets to the mainstream in a few short years? It is a fascinating story from a trusted insider.

For Richer, for Poorer was published in 2009. This audiobook was recorded in 2023.
