They were brilliant at using the media to help them get their careers going. At the time when they started, there were thousands of players making as much money as they were. They needed to separate themselves in order to get these opportunities. An online sponsorship was the grand prize, but how does an online poker site pick from among everyone crushing cash games and tournaments? The former created the Ship it Holla Ballas website. I used to be an editor at a magazine and interviewed him for a story.

Ship It Holla Ballas Review: A Portrait of a Poker Era Lost

It was and I was dating a girl in LA who was an aspiring filmmaker trying to put together a poker documentary. We met because she had reached out to get an interview, and she asked me to connect her with a few other players. I had a deep poker rolodex.

Who were the Ship It Holla Ballas? Arguably the most successful poker crew of all time, they took advantage of the online poker boom to win tens of millions of dollars before most of them were old enough to set foot inside a casino. Then they did what any red-blooded teenagers with mountains of cash and no responsibilities would do: They partied like rock stars, transforming themselves from Internet nerds with zero life skills into legends, at least in their own minds. In this excerpt from Ship It Holla Ballas! It's been three years since Chris Moneymaker's victory at the World Series of Poker, but the poker economy, powered by recreational players with dreams of winning millions on TV, shows no signs of slowing down. Online poker rooms host around-the-clock satellites and super-satellites -- inexpensive tournaments whose winners gain admission into tournaments with much bigger entry fees. The swell of new entrants inflates the prize pool, which in turn attracts even more attention from amateurs hoping to become the next Moneymaker.
