Designed to embarrass and discourage him, and to prevent him from playing poker at all, these vendettas instead backfire to showcase the author as one of the worlds top players. Responding to the vendettas that included threats of assault and robbery, the author boosts his physical health and strength for the purposes of self-defense, he polishes up his writing skills to create the autobiographical RUSH, he gains courage and maturity as a man, and he identifies his true purpose in life.
RUSH climaxes when the author realizes, after witnessing a video in which a comedian roasts him during his poker warrior trip to Las Vegas, that he has a certain degree of fame that has expanded outside of the casinos. To defend his honor and character, he decides to publish RUSH, and a promotional website at ScottRichardCampbell.com, both of which expose, embarrass, and stifle his enemies. Scrutinized by the crowd intelligence, the poker Al-Qaeda must now rethink its plans for attack.
RUSH is a captivating story of how the following bizarre events linked themselves together to generate an expos on card cheating and the poker Al-Qaeda, and also to literally create a legend overnight: . Coloring his hair to cover the gray but setting himself up for verbal bashings.
. A trip to Thailand to spend 12 days with a new girlfriend in a tropical paradise only to unwittingly help create the next form of slander from the poker Al-Qaeda. . A regretful exchange of epithets that puts him near the top of a racialhit list.
. Surviving poison only to fall into a well-crafted cheating trap, yet get the upper hand with some textbook plays to make the session now famous in the poker world. . With $8,000 in his pocket, a small battalion of robbers chasing him, witnessed by dozens, and his requesting a security escort to the parking lot.
. A Thai-style massage that the author believed set him up for an attempted theft later that same afternoon, interrupting a very peaceful nap. . Believing that the entire city of Las Vegas as one radio announcer put it, at the time of the final table of the 2007 World Series of Poker, and much of poker California, is gossiping about him, and mercilessly bashing him, all based on slanderous lies from the poker Al-Qaeda, while his peers are proclaiming him to be the Best Player in the World for the cash game of No Limit Hold-em.
