Million Dollar Video Poker by Bob Dancer
Bob Dancer is one of the best known video poker players and writers in the world.
Reportedly, in just six years, after coming to Las Vegas with a $6,000 bankroll, Dancer
won more than $1 million playing beatable machines. Million Dollar Video Poker recounts
the events of those six years, with stories about his meteoric ups and downs, and lessons
for players of all skill levels. Video poker is one of those rare casino games that can be
beaten by a talented and informed player, and Dancer explains how it's done. Never
before has a top video poker professional shared so many of his winning secrets.
EXCERPT: Playing the $100 machine, Shirley started with
Ace-Queen-Ten of Hearts and two small spades. I know which cards she held, because we have
pictures of themplus the King of Hearts and Jack of Hearts that arrived on the draw.
Four hundred big ones! Shirley turned around and looked at me. Eyes wide open. Speechless.
I'd told the staff that if Shirley ever connected on the big royal flush, they'd
all need new eardrums, she'd be screaming so loud. Turns out I was wrong. She didn't say a
word for the first 15 seconds, then all she managed to whisper was, "Oh my God."
"An intriguing behind-the-scenes look at the life of a professional gambler.
From the lows of hustling $2 coupons to the highs of hitting a $400,000 royal flush,
Dancer reveals what it took to make him the winningest video poker player in the world."
