Phil Hellmuth to Sign Poker Book in Las Vegas Sunday

Hellmuth Organized ‘Deal Me In’ Compilation


Deal Me InPhil Hellmuth will be in Las Vegas this weekend for two reasons — to root on his “student” Jeff Shulman at the World Series of Poker final table and to autograph his new autobiographical poker compilation, Deal Me In, which features the stories of 20 of the biggest names in poker.

Hellmuth will be at Barnes and Noble on 8915 W. Charleston, in the Crossroads Commons of Las Vegas beginning at 6 p.m. on Sunday. He will sign copies of his new book, Deal Me In, but according to a Barnes and Noble website, he will not autograph other memorabilia.

Deal Me In, a collection of autobiographical accounts from many of the biggest names in poker, is also available to order online.

Hellmuth, the 11-time WSOP bracelet winner, conceptualized the book and convinced his fellow competitors to share some of the most intimate details of their lives for the manuscript.

“Each player gives you a behind-the-scenes look into their early years as scrappy, amateur players and how they broke into the big-time professional ranks,” said Hellmuth. “The pros cover their humble beginnings, the obstacles they overcame, the demons they faces, and ultimately the success they enjoyed.”

In all, 20 players signed on to tell their stories, including seven world champions (Hellmuth, Scotty Nguyen, Peter Eastgate, Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, Chris Ferguson, and Carlos Mortensen) and some of the most recognizable pros in the game (such as Phil Ivey, Allen Cunningham, Tom Dwan, Howard Lederer, Daniel Negreanu, and Layne Flack).
