Planning an itinerary of casinos to visit, playing in a team and leaving with pockets full of money, often with the security guards hot on their heels; the players work hard and play hard.
The book is entertainingly written throughout, with a stark and dramatic change in tone in the final chapter. There is something of a twist in the tail, one which I can’t help but feel I should have expected- but it came out of the blue for me.
I was fascinated by the author’s account of a life lived on the edge. Card counting is not illegal, but it is for obvious reasons unpopular with casinos.
