Ross Bertram: Master Magician

HOW GAMBLERS CHEAT YOU AT CARDS


Here is the gambling exposé article by Ross Bertram that was featured in Variety magazine in February 1963: “How Gamblers Cheat You at Cards.” Ross was billed as a professional gambling investigator and explained with great clarity how “even friendly bridge and poker games nourish cheats. Here are ways they operate — and how to spot them.”

The article maybe close to fifty years old now, but it remains a terrific read by one of magic's brightest sleight-of-hand experts. Enjoy!
