  THE CARD COUNTER'S GUIDE TO CASINO SURVEILLANCE , BY CELLINI
Review by Arnold Snyder

Unless the casino attitude toward card counters goes through some drastic change in the near future, such that counters are viewed by casinos as good customers who should be allowed to win whatever their talents allow, I cannot imagine any card counter not wanting (and needing) The Card Counter's Guide to Casino Surveillance. This book by a casino surveillance director, writing under the pseudonym D.V. Cellini, is the first book ever to describe in vivid detail what card counters are up against, from the enemy’s perspective.

Aside from the education it provides, this book by D. V. Cellini is funny. The "Glossary" of terms commonly used by casino surveillance personnel is an education in itself. Hole card players are "peek freaks." A big player who is circling the pit endlessly looking for his spotters’ call-in signals is a "buzzard." A player who spends hours in the same seat, continuing even through a shift change, is a "headstone."

If you ever play even at the green chip level, my advice to you would be to take four of those chips and trade them for this report. The long-run value of The Card Counter's Guide to Casino Surveillance will far exceed the value of those four bets on the table. Virtually every card counter who rises above the nickel level eventually has problems with heat, backing off, and barrings from casino surveillance. Card counting is a skill that once developed leads to an inability to apply it anywhere at any high level. The more successful you are as a counter, the shorter your days. For most counters, this future of barring and harassment seems almost inevitable.

This book can change all of that. For the first time, you can know exactly what you’re walking into when you walk into a casino. The Card Counter's Guide to Casino Surveillance is a nothing less than the enemy’s secret plans and documents on how to find you and attack you before you can do any damage. Cellini answers every question you have about how to disguise yourself as a tourist and gambler. This is the information you need before you’ve started having problems with heat. And if you have already had such problems, then Cellini's book is the remedy. ♠
