A Gambler's Life

Benny Binion went from a sickly kid growing up in Grayson County to the biggest name in gambling. We’ll talk this hour about how he cashed in on his deft mix of ruthlessness and street smarts with Dallas Morning News reporter Doug J. Swanson. His new book is Blood Aces: The Wild Ride of Benny Binion, the Texas Gangster Who Created Vegas Poker (Viking Adult).
