Stories From the Felt®
New York City has a long history of underground games, but none have a bigger legacy in the poker world than the Mayfair Club. Some of the Mayfair Club’s best players, including Dan Harrington, Howard Lederer, and Erik Seidel, were the first to challenge Las Vegas’ best No Limit Hold’em players at the World Series of Poker, while the club itself inspired the movie ‘Rounders’. Seidel, Steve Zolotow and some of the Mayfair Club’s originators tell their stories from the felt.
