Gambling Luck – Gamblers Fight Back

I was at a point in my life where luck seemed to control my destiny and mine had run out.  Early in my life it seemed luck was on my side, but since college graduation it seemed to turn against me.  However, after a situation where my family and I were almost killed by a drunk driver it proved to me that my luck was not completely lost, so I decided to put it to the ultimate test.

As a depressed out of work former teacher,college basketball coach, small business owner, and insurance salesman I decided to put what little money we had into a life of gambling.  Along the way I discovered ironically enough that true professional gamblers do not rely on luck and neither should I.  This is my story to reveal the world of gambling, and how I came to realize that luck had never left me and neither did my will to live.

I discuss the many myths and deceptions that surround the casinos.  Everybody who is a part of it has gotten their hands dirty.  From casino executives to pro gamblers themselves, financial success in this world often requires moral self-justifications.  It is a world of such allure and enticements that few can resist.  I entered this world and came out a better person for it.  Find out how in my memoir on professional gambling Gamblers Fight Back.

UPDATE: The official release date for Gamblers Fight Back has been pushed back until mid March. However, there will be some pre-release copies available directly through me or directly from my publisher by the end of Dec.

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 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.
