If you love gambling and everything associated with it, or if you love reading about gambling you will cherish these stories, which are some of the greatest gambling stories ever told.
The Queen of Spades by Aleksandr Pushkin
The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County by Mark Twain
The Gambler by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The Rocking-Horse Winner by D. H. Lawrence
Although these stories were not written with the intent to make you a better gambler, I firmly believe that indirectly they will. They will cause you to reflect on the psychology of gambling and its peculiar characters which haven’t changed over time. Maybe you will find yourself or part of yourself in one of the characters described in one of the stories. Or you might find someone you know, a friend, a relative or a colleague. These stories hold great wisdom and I hope are as entertaining und eye opening for you as they were for me.
At the end of this ebook you will find biographies of each of the authors. You will find the lives of the authors just as fascinating as the stories they are telling.
