I'll Win Because I'm a Good Person

5 December 1999
©1999 by Andrew N. S. Glazer All Rights Reserved If you ever saw Let It Ride, the funny Richard Dreyfuss movie about a magical day at a race track, you probably remember the scene where Dreyfuss, in the midst of his great streak, exclaims "God likes me!" Given the mysterious and perverse ... (read more)
 

One-Deck Blackjack: Be Careful What You Wish For, You Might Get It!

21 November 1999
While in Las Vegas for the 30th Annual World Series of Poker, I decided to make a nostalgic return to the blackjack tables that had helped put me through college and law school. I no longer try to play blackjack as a regular source of income, so I felt ... (read more)
 

Casino Self Defense, The REAL Way

8 November 1999
Those of you who have read my book, Casino Gambling the Smart Way, probably came across a section in the introduction where I related the story of how the book's name got changed by the publisher. I'd wanted "Casino Self Defense" for the title, the publisher wanted ... (read more)
 

The Free Lunch, Revisited

24 October 1999
Thanks to books like Jean Scott's The Frugal Gambler, and fine newsletters like Anthony Curtis' Las Vegas Advisor, an entirely new sub-class of gamblers is emerging. Some call them "Comp Wizards," other "Couponomists," but whatever name you pick, the number of gamblers who try to earn maximum freebies for minimum investments is growing rapidly. ... (read more)
 

The Worst Player in the World

10 October 1999
You can find my "10 Basic Rules of Gambling" in Chapter 40 of Casino Gambling the Smart Way, and those rules are worth a review before any casino trip. In a poker game earlier today, I re-learned (the hard way, as opposed to the smart way) a long-forgotten addendum to Rule #3. Before we examine this sad and instructive tale, let's make sure you're up to speed on the original rule. ... (read more)
 

Poker Tournaments: Gold Mines, or "Beefsteak Mines?"

19 September 1999
In one of my favorite W.C. Fields movies, The Bank Dick, a fast-talking con man convinces Fields' dim-witted associate to embezzle bank funds in order to invest in the con man's "Beefsteak Mine" stock. I don't know about you, but what little beef I do eat these days isn't mined. I tried to envision the guys in the tunnel, hard-hats with lamps illuminating their work. ... (read more)
 

The Tournament of Champions, Day Three: The King of Kings

5 September 1999
Percy Shelley's Ozymandias was supposed to be the King of Kings, although the fame and works of the mighty Ozymandias were forgotten in Shelley's poem. Last night, David Chiu replaced poetic fable with memorable reality. The modest, soft-spoken Southern Californian won poker's inaugural Tournament of ... (read more)
 

The Tournament of Champions, Day Two: French Fry Opponents, Conventional Wisdom

22 August 1999
On Day Two of poker's inaugural Tournament of Champions, the French contingent stole the show. Maybe it's revenge for American Lance Armstrong winning the Tour de France bicycle race. Europeans aren't supposed to be strong limit poker players. It's not the genes or the language, just experience. European ... (read more)
 

The Tournament of Champions, Day One: "Look What's Happened to Poker"

8 August 1999
664 tournament champions had just finished marching into the Orleans Hotel's Mardi Gras Ballroom, carrying their national flags and readying themselves for poker's first ever Tournament of Champions, when poker legend and former World Series of Poker Champion Puggy Pearson addressed the crowd. "Look what's ... (read more)
