'Fading Hearts On The River' Delves Into Life Of Modern Poker Player

The modern poker champion is likely to be a 20-something college student who plays with designer sunglasses, a baseball cap or hoodie and he listens to his iPod as the game progresses. But how does a millennial go from playing games late at night in a college dorm to winning six and seven-figure prizes in poker tournaments?

Brooks Haxton had a ringside seat to that rise of a poker champion. His son Isaac was at college one year and then quit to play professionally. It caused Brooks Haxton to think about that transformation and he writes about it in his new book, Fading Hearts on the River.
