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.

George Devol ProfiledGeorge Devol Profiled
An interesting article about cheating and how its perception evolved in gambling. The Poker News article explained that, "This definition of a "gambler" as both a risk-taker and a morally dubious individual for whom cheating is just "part of the game" would stick well into the 20th century, only fading somewhat by the century's latter decades. That's not to say cheating would disappear from poker entirely, but the likelihood of a cheater standing up proudly like Devol to narrate all of his successful swindles diminished markedly."

A very interesting and surprising (full of real secrets) article appeared in the New York times about 'advantage' play. The article reported that, "Common advantage-play techniques include 'hole carding,' in which sharp-eyed players profit from careless dealers who unwittingly reveal tiny portions of the cards; 'shuffle tracking,' or memorizing strings of cards in order to predict when specific cards will be dealt after they are next shuffled; and counting systems that monitor already dealt cards in order to estimate the value of those that remain in the deck. Richard Munchkin, a professional gambler who is the author of 'Gambling Wizards' and a co-host of the radio show 'Gambling With an Edge,' claims to have mastered all of these techniques. 'I think every game can be beaten,' he says." The article also take a detailed look at why and how Cheung Yin Sun became known as "The Queen of Sorts."
