NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Actor Ben Affleck was among the nicest and most generous poker players who took part in the high-stakes games hosted by Molly Bloom, according to the woman dubbed the 'Poker Princess."

Bloom went from working as an assistant for a real estate development company, to running poker games for A-listers, to becoming a target of more than a dozen FBI agents who took her into custody in Los Angeles.

"I had no idea what I was doing," said Bloom about her start as the darling of the poker scene.

She ran the poker circuit which allegedly included celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Alex Rodriguez and Tobey Maguire.

From hedge fund managers to wealthy people from east to west coast, Bloom developed an A-list clientele.

But things came crashing down when Bloom was busted.

"The FBI seized all my assets," said Bloom who was sentenced last month to one year of probation.

While she says she's given up the high life, she's using the book to get her story out, added Bloom.

'Molly's Game' is now available in stores and online.
