Actually Scarne's greatest skill was as an author. Not for the quality of his prose, but for his in-depth explanations of table games.
I learned everything I know about Craps, Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Slots, etc from reading Scarne's big book on the subject.
Back in the day, I read it and re-read it a couple of dozen times.


Absolutely agree. Scarne's in depth and extensive explanations on gambling games jumped started me and I was years ahead in understanding the various games, odds, procedures, cheating methods and so on. Well ahead of others in understanding what gambling was all about. That was invaluable.

Fortunately this was before the magician/hobbyist/demonstrator craze took hold and I was not distracted by a lot of "non-gambling" and somewaht questionable information and ideas.

Well not all hustlers deal seconds or do moves but anyone who does moves in a game and makes money is a hustler.
