Overview

In the mid-1970s, Ian Andersen wrote Turning the Tables on Las Vegas, the classic book on casino comportment. As the first book to broach the all-important consideration of how to get away with getting the money, Turning was the book that launched a thousand blackjack careers. After its publication, however, Andersen disappeared from the scene. Where did he go? The answer is spelled out in this long-awaited sequel, Burning the Tables in Las Vegas-Keys to Success in Blackjack and in Life.

Since 1976, Andersen has been perfecting his personal program for success in blackjack, poker, and other of life's games. His technique combines elements of mathematics, psychology, and mental and physical well-being to create a never-before-disclosed approach to winning.

Burning the Tables in Las Vegas addresses virtually every aspect of blackjack advantage play: game selection, longevity, tipping, employee relations, guises, disguises, false identification, credit, comps, risk, heat, dress, demeanor, and diet. Andersen also explains how emotions, such as guilt and anger, and skills, such as discipline and interpersonal competence, can affect your prospects for profit.

Peppered with fascinating anecdotes and stories from Andersen's forays into the great casinos of the world, Burning the Tables in Las Vegas takes you on a vicarious journey into the rarefied realm of the high-stakes blackjack pro-and shows you what it takes to be one.
