The one sure bet when it comes to gambling is this: The house always wins. Sure, every year a small percentage of people comes out ahead. There will always be a handful of professionals, lucky individuals, and college grads with a system who win big and capture the headlines. But in all cases, the big winners in gambling are the casinos themselves. Each year, dozens of new books come out on the subject of gambling, usually offering some new foolproof "system," essential advice from career players, or tips from the latest lucky bastard to win a gambling tournament.But most of the people who win regularly at casinos aren't playing by the books. But they're not counting cards or cheating either - they're just not playing the way those gambling books you see at your local Barnes and Noble are telling you to play. Unlike every other gambling book on the market, "Casino Confidential" is written from a pit boss' perspective, from a man who's seen it all and doesn't mince words. Instead of detailing dry math theories and statistically the most advantageous betting, this book will detail more contrary methods of playing and winning.
