Our interview this week is with Frank Scoblete is the author of many books about gambling including I Am a Dice Controller, I Am a Card Counter, as well as non gambling books such as Confessions of a Wayward Catholic.
He’s written for and appeared in many television documentaries such as the “What Would you do if…” program on the Travel Channel and has written numerous columns for gambling magazines & websites.
A very special thank you to listener Ed who suggested that I speak to Frank. Ed also helped me prep for this interview and introduced me to Frank. For that I am very grateful.
Frank and I talked for about an hour and a half, so I’m going to split the interview up into two episodes. In this part he talks about how he became a card counter and explains the discipline it takes to do it professionally.
