    A Gambling Success Story Well Told

    This is not another how-to book about playing video poker perfectly. Bob Dancer and others already have written those books. This new one offers: (1) a surprisingly revealing account of Dancer's rags-to-riches life over the past 20 years; and (2) his advice about preserving one's bankroll and soul while gambling to earn a living. Video poker happens to be the venue because that is Dancer's game of choice. But anyone who aspires to being a winning gambler should read this book. In addition, the book is a fun read. The Dancers' climactic $1,000,000 win is merely the happy ending of an adventure that often threatened to end badly.

    A tale of determination

    Bob Dancer tells the story of his exciting 7-year ride playing video poker, beginning with a modest bankroll and ultimately leading to a million dollar win over the casinos. Along the way he relates some of the most fascinating and revealing anecdotes of any gambler to date. In the process the intelligence, psychology and strategies essential to a successful player are disclosed. The book leaves little doubt about luck's keen role in conquest over the casinos. But disciplined play is vividly illustrated by Dancer to be far more crucial. He demonstrates that discipline maximizes opportunities for luck to play out in the gamblers' favor. While focused on Dancer's video poker experience, any gambler will find food for thought applicable to their game. For that matter, even a reader with a passing gaming interest will find it a very lucid, compelling and entertaining read. The book is quite possibly the most insightful book on the subject of gambling that anyone who has ever stepped foot into a casino, or who contemplates doing so, will pick up. It isn't one to overlook.
