    I wonder how much the gambling layperson will enjoy reading American Roulette? The book recounts the casino cheating career of Richard Marcus who was a past posting casino cheat Marcus masters the art of past posting roulette and sometimes blackjack Along with his team he sets up pit bosses and dealers by switching higher denomination chips under winning bets Eventually the team uses a reverse past post where the big bet is taken away instead of being added The reverse past post greatly reduced security heat and increased the team’s win rateFor gamblers the book provides a fairly detailed explanation of various casino cheating techniues Although I would have enjoyed learning about how the team laundered their winnings and about their money management strategiesThe book is divided into chronological chapters where different eras of Marcus' cheating are recounted The most interesting part of the book for the student of casino history is the chapters that outline the development of the Classon gang This chapter tells the story of a grizzly old gambler from New York named Mumbles who begins past posting craps in San Juan and who eventually moves to Las Vegas to perfect his lay and claim techniueOverall I enjoyed reading this book It’s well written I assume “Richard Marcus” is a pseudonym and the book is ghost written and the stories are suspenseful and generally exciting In order to win a living as a casino cheat one must have nothing to lose Although little is said about the author’s childhood I assume it was pretty rough and his family relationships are pretty bad If you have anything to lose read this book after work but show up the next day to your job on time

    A fun read The author's attempts to glorify and justify their cheating is sort of grating and some of his references to women are cringe inducing but overall I enjoyed the book

    American Roulette by Richard Marcus is not what I would call a good book but it is a good storyLet's face it the guy is a casino pastposter one who swaps a larger bet in after it wins not an author The book is entertaining but frankly gets a little old after a while There's only so much Then we went to this other casino put in a few moves they didn't have a clue ha ha and then we went to another one you can take before it gets repetitive His brushes with the steam in the back rooms of casino are probably the most interesting parts He also tells some good stories about pastposting history as he knows it If you can pick it up at a library it's worth a read just to get a glimpse of life on the dark side But I wouldn't pay money for it unless I was a casino owner

    This book is why ghostwriters exist In the right hands this could have been a really interesting book but if you can't write just admit it and work with someone that can Marcus gets too technical so inside baseball that you can no longer understand what he's talking about and there's just way too much outright gloating and 'yeah baby who's awesome? This guy right here' A good story ruined

    After working in a local casino for almost 2 years I have always been interested in the mind of the player and how some seem to make their own odds This book is a great autobiography of the author and his partners life of cheating casinos world wide over 25 yrs If you enjoy learning about a gamblers lifestyle this book is a good read
