The new book on Absolute Poker by author Ben Mezrich, which details the rise and fall of the infamous poker site is not sitting well with the online poker community. Mezrich described the story as "very American" and a story of a group of Montana frat boys who went from "rags-to-riches, earning more than a million dollars a day, following savvy business strategy and even better luck". Poker players on the online board community of 2+2 however called for Mezrich to investigate and tell both sides of the story. It is not known how much if any part of the cheating scandal will be detailed in the book, but Mezrich has written that the DOJ was gunning for the group and finally managed to close the operations down just because they were operating on a gray area of US law.
