How Gamblers Win - Secrets of Advantage Playing by Gerritt M. Evans

This is a pre-Erdnase description of moves and ruses to cheat at the card table by an unnamed 'retired professional'. However, Bart Whaley's research revealed that this retired professional was Gerrit M. Evans, that his real name was most likely Edward M. Grandin and that Evans/Grandin was not a professional gambler. (Bart is working on an upcoming book about Evans - The Mysterious Gambler.)

This ebook was created from the 1868 edition. There is also an earlier 1865 edition. The 1868 faked edition drops the name of the author who is, of course, Evans/Grandin, pretends that the "anonymous" author is a "retired" gambler, which of course, Evans/Grandin was not, and adds a section giving an incorrect description of "Three Card Monte".

The description reads:

A complete and scientific expose of the manner of playing all the various advantages in the games of poker, all-fours, euchre, vingt-un, whist, cribbage, etc., as practiced by professional gamblers upon the uninitiated. Together with a brief analysis of legitimate play. By a retired professional.
1st edition 1865, 2nd edition 1868; original 112 pages; PDF 48 reformatted pages.
