New Book

Read a new book yesterday about gambling.  The book is “Bet the House:  How I risked a thousand dollars a day for 30 days.”  Considering what I’m doing, I thought this might be interesting.  It’s not a bad book, the guy is a good writer, he’s the guy who replaced Siskel on Siskel and Ebbert, Richard Roeper.  My biggest problem with it is the guy is rich, who cares if he bets a grand a day for 30 days.  If he loses 30 grand it’s not going to impact his life one bit.  Also, he knew he was writing a book about which I’m sure he made more than 30 grand. It would have been more interesting if he wasn’t doing it to write a book, and only had 30 grand to his name and no job.  That would raise the stakes a little bit.  That reminds me more of my own situation, maybe that’s why I like the idea.  All in all, not a bad book.

About Greg Elder

I was 37 years old, a husband and father, a former teacher, college and high school basketball coach, and a business owner, I decided to give it all up (Not the husband and father part) to take a shot at pro gambling. I was coming off a job I hated selling insurance, and I vowed to do something I was passionate about. For the next year I would spend 12-15 hours a day researching, studying, and practicing advantage gambling techniques. The goal was to see if I could sustain our current lifestyle as a professional gambler. I wanted to find out if casinos really could be beat. At the time, I thought it may be the biggest mistake of my life, but my intentions were to have fun trying. It has been an interesting few years since that journey began. My feature book GAMBLERS FIGHT BACK has been released and can be purchased on my author site at www.GREGELDERAUTHOR.com I would consider my pro gambling career to be a success on all fronts. I didn't win millions of dollars, but I was able to enjoy every minute of it. It brought an excitement and passion back into my professional life. It has helped lead me to a writing career that I had no idea I even wanted before this challenge. I was able to write a book that shared with others exactly what I learned along the way.. Gambling professionally is not easy, but there are certain things the average gambler can do to increase their chances of success tremendously. That's the information I try to pass along to my readers.
