Steve and Matt Bourie from the American Casino Guide book take a look at what it takes to become a professional gambler. In this two-part series they look at six different casino games to see if it is possible to make a living at those games by becoming a professional casino gambler. They emphasize that while it is not easy to be gambling for a living, it can be done, and there are people who do it. This is part one where they examine the games of craps, blackjack and roulette. They explain if it is possible to beat those games and, if so, what is needed to become a professional casino player for those specific games. Later, in part two, they examine the games of baccarat, slots and video poker.
