Putting your mouth where the money is

Last Saturday I presented a talk to Leeds Skeptics on the subject of “Beating the Bookies: Can you make money from gambling?”

The talk looked at various ways it might be possible to get an edge over the bookmakers or casinos though unfortunately with a conclusion that it was fairly unlikely that you would be able to achieve this.

Never the less there were some interesting discussions after the event with people who had made a somewhat profitable attempt at it and come out with quite a lot to show for it over the years. What it comes down to though is that it is possible, but you really have to grind it out – and that’s just like having a job, so isn’t really a get rich quick scheme.
