My gambling experiences over the past three
decades, not to mention my relationships with top
players and casino executives, have taught me so much
about the games… so much, in fact, that I want to share
many of my experiences with you.
I’ve peppered my book with occasional stories that
help to drive home an important point. Many of the stories
were selected by my readers from my previous works
as their favorites. A smattering of stories are lighthearted
and purposely included to let you sit back and
enjoy a good laugh. If you’re going to be a good gambler,
you need a good sense of humor! I’m sure
I don’t have to tell you why!
Several stories in particular have become rather controversial.
My office has received queries from casino
managers, gaming writers, and even TV producers asking
if the stories are true. I’ve begged off answering these
questions, preferring to leave the element of mystery intact.
