Why would you rule out games people have already proven can be beaten to concentrate on games the sharpest minds ignore?

dull minds pay attention to beatable games, but sharp minds no?

What's so tough to understand? He already knows BJ & Poker are beatable (or can make a living doing it), and was asking if people can/do make a living playing other games.

Answer: Yes.

They don't on games such as baccarat, craps unless they are doing something fishy.

Not how he's probably thinking. ANYTHING can be AP'ed given the right circumstances.

Just curious because you hear rumors all the time.....Does anybody personally know anybody that strictly makes a living gambling? And if are any of them wealthy from it? Ruling out card counting and poker!



How about poker and UTH? I sometimes play with UTH at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi with a guy who usually (but not always -- variance, y'know) wins reasonable sums.

A few months ago I played (and busted early) in a poker tmt, then went to UTH. After a few hours, my acquaintance joined at the seat beside me. Shortly after, the guy who busted me in the tmt joined the game. I commented to my acquaintance how "that was the guy who busted me in the tmt." My acquaintance replied, "He's good. Finished 6th." (The guy who busted me nodded in recognition of us.)

So, I asked my acquaintance how he did in the tmt. "Chopped First & Second for almost $6K." Later he commented that he made a pretty good living playing poker and UTH at the Beau (because they tolerated his larger-then-average bets). He was pissed off because Beau had just announced a poker tmt he would want to play in, but had already booked passage for his lady and himself on a gambling cruise that conflicted with the dates.

I cannot vouch for the accuracy of what he told me. So, take it with a grain of salt if you choose. I can only vouch for his winning that one poker tmt and for winning regularly at UTH.
