Professor Edward O. Thorp – Beat The Dealer (1965, Mono, Vinyl) - Discogs

In order to beat the dealer at any game of chance, you have to know the game inside and out. Sure, any Joe Schmo off the street can sit down at a table and by pure luck win a few hands, but in order to achieve long term success, you’ll need to develop an in depth knowledge of how the game is played and what you can do to increase you odds of winning.


Beating the Dealer or the Game?

The first thing to realize is that it is not the dealer himself you need to beat, it is the game. The dealer has no real control or influence over the outcome of the game, he or she is simply the means by which the game plays itself out. Do not focus on the dealer as a person, but as another facet of the game that needs to be understood in order to be beaten.

One of the best things you can do to beat the dealer/game is to pick a game and stick with it. Gambling is like anything else, the more you play, the better you’ll get. Sticking with one game and playing it repeatedly is like practicing your jump shot. Keep doing it over and over again and you’re bound to improve.

Another way to beat the dealer/game is to realize that while the odds naturally favor the house, there are things you can do to overcome those odds. There are a few gambling systems out there designed to overcome the house’s advantage in games like Roulette and Black Jack that are well worth the money they cost. They can teach you valuable tips and insider strategies to predict the results of the next spin or the next deal so you can maximize your earnings and beat the dealer over and over again.
