Cheating is dangerous and often illegal. Although there are many professional card cheaters, they would be stupid to publicly advertise that fact. There are some that are considered "converted" and have come clean to write about their exploits. The majority of information on the subject is written and produced by researchers, journalists, consultants, gamblers and magicians who have studied the art of cheating. The people who are represented here should not be confused with "card cheaters" and we do not recommend that anyone pursue this as a career. Acquiring knowledge about the subject is however invaluable to anyone who plays cards.
