Resumen:

Take Me to the River : An overeducated underachiever, Peter Alson spent his post-college decades doing his best not to grow up. But having just turned fifty, this rambling-gambling bachelor decides it's time to settle down. So he pops the question to his longtime girlfriend, then hatches a plan to pay for their wedding - involving poker and a trip to Las Vegas. Boarding a plane bound for the neon desert and the biggest game in town - the 2005 World Series of Poker - this inveterate gambler and bad boy stares down his past and his future while competing for over $56 million in prize money. Take Me to the River is a hilarious, wrenching, full-tilt Vegas exploration of one man's obsession with poker and the lessons it has to offer - about probability and luck, good fortune and bad, patience, perseverance, and - most fitting for a man with marriage in his near future - commitment.
