In 2011, Grantland staked novelist Colson Whitehead to play in The World Series of Poker. He covered his experiences training, playing in practice tournaments, and gunning for the big win in a hilarious serious of essays, and now he’s telling the whole story in The Noble Hustle, coming May 6th from Doubleday. It’s funny and self-deprecating and delightfully sarcastic, and you don’t even have to understand or care about poker to enjoy it.

The book features a fictional nation called Anhedonia, where happiness is not allowed, and all smiles have been banished. Whitehead suggests that he is Anhedonia’s official representative at the World Series of Poker (and, indeed, in life). The awesome folks at Doubleday designed 20 posters for Anhedonia, and today we have an exclusive sneak peek at 4 of them AND a rad giveaway! 20 lucky Riot readers will win an Anhedonia poster and a set of Noble Hustle playing cards.
