Meet the Author

John Marchel, owner of John Marchel Enterprises in California, has been a successful gambler for over 25 years. John has played winning blackjack in Europe, Panama, the Bahamas, Canada, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Reno, at the Indian reservations, and on cruise ships. Since 1988, he has combined his vast experience as a manager, teacher, and player to present seminars and lectures about winning blackjack throughout the US. He publishes The Gaming Bulletin, a bimonthly newsletter, and is also the author of 101 Casino Gambling Tips (1998). John claims he is really a "blackjack practitioner", which he defines as "someone who plays the game with the skills of a professional but does not derive his primary income from blackjack or gambling. A serious player." Lance Humble is recognized as the world's top academic authority on gambling. A university professor who teaches courses in gambling and psychological measurement, he is also a part-time professional gambler who has won in excess of $80,000. Humble is a racehorse owner, a writer on gambling, a research psychologist, an instructor, an educator, and an independent entrepreneur. He is also a gambling system tester for betting games of all sorts, from soccer to horse racing. The author of The World's Greatest Blackjack Book and a member of many professional organizations including The British Society for the Study of Gambling and the American Psychological Association, he would one day like to establish a Gambling Research Institute.

    Best Gambling Guide

    I read alot about everything and anything......I also gamble. This guide is very good for the beginner and anyone that wants to limit their losses(I prefer to make money and approach this as a JOB). You should do the same.....read this book and 'memorize' it. I thought the chapters on Blackjack were very helpful. Blackjack is the only game that should be played in a casino and this book has most all the info you need to play correctly........I strongly suggest the book Blackjack The Smartway by Richard Harvey

    You are just a hop, skip, and a jump away from expert!

    Notwithstanding the fact that this is a beginner's guide, it may well transfigure you into an advanced gamer with the bankroll of a whale. This is a must-buy book for the serious gambler, as it will help him or her in gaining important knowledge in the basics of gambling. The buyer should avoid swallowing the book whole. Rather it's pages ought to be chewed up several times, its taste lingered on as a connoisseur lingers on the taste of the finest wine, the information obtained in its entirety. Then, the reader should go back to his or her greatest interest, reading it yet again for clarity. As soon as it's decided on what subject the reader wants to become an expert, the extensive bibliography provided should be considerable to the reader's want for further reading. I chose Poker, more specifically Texas Hold'em. However, Its poker section is rather limited. If you think this will be your specialty, avoid the book. I recommend this book for the novice gamer wanting to become an expert.
