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.

Old School JusticeOld School Justice
A Maxim article looks at how casinos dealt with cheaters before anti-cheating laws were enacted. Max Rubin explained that, "It took more balls to be a cheater in the old days, but, as long as you didn't get assassinated in your driveway or have your jaw broken on the street, the old way was arguably better. Guys would rather get beaten than have the cops called in and wind up in jail. Bones heal. Police records are forever." Ruben also pointed out that, "The most outrageous thing I've seen recently involved players who had cameras in bottles of water. The cameras recorded the shuffles and the players knew the order of cards that were being dealt." Also quoted in the article was Sal Piacente.
