Four kinds of poker gambers poker lovers at cards
2013-06-24 17:14

     We don't know how many gamblers in the world, it is impossible to count. But we can see that there are four kinds of gamblers at cards:

     1. The occasional player, who knows little or nothing about the hard mathematical and psychological facts of the game on which now and then he hazards his money. This player constitutes the vast majority. His losses make cards one of America's big businesses.

     2. The card hustler, who knows a little more about the game -- any game -- than the occasional gambler, and who looks on the latter with elaborate contempt. The hustler makes most or part of his living from the occasional gambler's errors.

     3. The professional gambler, who earns his living (or most of it) by operating a card game. Gambler? I don't quite mean that in its dictionary sense. The professional doesn't gamble; he is a businessman who understands his trade, who runs a house for direct levies on the games or for fixed percentages which are his overhead for maintaining a pleasure resort. I have a grudging respect for this professional. He charges what the traffic will stand, but no more; he provides a service; and you can't hold his political acquaintances against him. Since he takes part in a game of chance, he is known as a gambler.

     4. The crook, the cheat, whose gamble is not in winning or losing, but rather in getting away with it or getting caught.

     To the average card player the man who makes his living by cheating at cards is a sharper, sharp, or shark, but to card hustlers and house men he is known as a mechanic. It is a tolerably descriptive word. Card mechanics are the masters of a dull, utterly unglamorous trade; they spend their spare hours at exacing practice; they know no game but their own; they are about as interesting and adventurous as the drunkard who tries to chisel the price of a drink.
