At some point in one's life, they will face something that challenges them like they've never been before, it will be how they respond that will define them forever. "Into the Muck" is the non-fiction memoir of how poker and the gambling lifestyle consumed a young man. Young people have impressionable minds; some go off to college and take advantage of the education it provides, while others follow a different path. Never before has gambling been seen through the eyes of a twenty five year old like this: the swings of emotion, the turn of a card, the crushed dreams of a promising future, life, death, and addiction. "Into the Muck" submerges you into the chaos of a life not often talked about as the young man fights to escape the demons he created.
