The ultimate true story of Las Vegas, the book the casinos don't want you to read...
For nearly five years, he was known as the 'Darling Of Las Vegas'; the biggest high roller to hit Sin City in decades, a hotshot, twenty one year-old kid with an unlimited lust for big money action. His name was Semyon Dukatch, and stories swirled in his wake. Some said he was a Russian arms dealer , others a pop star from Eastern Europe. But the truth was even more unlikely: he was a twenty-one year old graduate student who had a plan that would one day make him richer than anyone could possibly imagine.
Dukatch quickly became a legend in the world of cards and casinos. He is the only person banned from the island of Aruba. He was held, at gunpoint, in a cave in Monte Carlo, and he made millions of dollars playing blackjack, using brilliantly simple playing techniques revealed in this book for the first time.
