POPULAR TOPICS WITH COLLECTORS

GAMBLING BOOKS OF INTEREST

Card Cheating

A skill used by card sharks, hustlers and card mechanics. A high level of skill and dexterity is used to manipulate the cards in a game of poker, blackjack, gin rummy, stud & draw poker or other card game. Usually by means of card stacking, mucking, deck switching (coolers) or marked decks and false dealing.

Game Protection

Certain procedures put in place to minimize illegal cheating in casinos whether this be procedural evaluations and changes or surveillance. Important and highly respected publications have been written by Steve Forte

Advantage Play

A legal means of getting an advantage over a house game. Advantage play exploits innate characteristics of a particular game to give the player an advantage relative to the house or other players. While this is not illegal, advantage play is often discouraged and some advantage players may be banned by certain casinos.

Antique Gambling Devices

Usually mechanical or electronic implements used to cheat at casino games including Jacob’s Ladder sleeve holdout, gaff dice, marked playing cards, cheating clips and such.
