Book on Absolute Poker to be Written by Ben Mezrich (Video)

Appearing on CNBC’s “The Squawk Box” Wednesday, author Ben Mezrich revealed he is writing a book about Absolute Poker, an online poker site caught up in a series of indictments last year.

The author of “Bringing Down The House” and “The Accidental Billionaires” sure will have plenty of material to work with.  In addition to last year’s indictments that resulted in the ultimate shutdown of Absolute Poker and its sister site, UB.com, the online poker room was once embroiled in an “insider cheating scandal” that would later be profiled by the CBS news magazine show “60 Minutes”. 

"I’m working on one (book) for next summer on a bunch of college kids who launched the online poker world out of a dorm room" at the University of Montana,” Mezrich said during his appearance.
