 Caravaggio-Inspired Card Players from the Fogg Museum | Mar 04, 2015 | 12:37 am EST

Caravaggio can make the claim to have painted the most influential painting in the history of art, The Cardsharps, on display at the Kimbell Art Museum. I know of many copies as well as other paintings influenced by it but I recently discovered yet another work influenced by Caravaggio's Cardsharps, which is owned by the Fogg Museum of Art, in Camb...


 Now You Can Send Money to Nigeria Fast | Feb 06, 2015 | 12:48 am EST

If you have some business in Nigeria, such as sending money to a princess who asked you to clear $20,000,000 through your bank account, there's some good news. Now there's a new service, Nigeria Direct, that you can use to send money directly to Nigeria. I almost couldn't believe my eyes, when I saw this poster in the window of a cash transfer plac...

 Antique Caro Dealing Shoes, the Real Deal | Apr 16, 2012 | 09:48 pm EDT

If you happen to be a collector of casino dealing shoes you should definitely have at least one antique Caro shoe in your collection. I happen to be fortunate enough to have two of them. Both are six-deck chemin de fer shoes, both are made from mahogany, but they are not identical.The first shoe has green hardware and a handle at the rear. I bought...


 Antique JAJ Chemin de Fer Dealing Shoe | Feb 29, 2012 | 11:15 pm EST

JAJ from Paris was a leading European maker of gaming equipment, back in the early 1900s. To this day I do not know what JAJ stands for, but I'm pretty sure that one of the letters J must stand for "jeux," which is the French word for games. The last letter J is usually flipped, so that the abbreviation JAJ becomes symmetrical. This often confuses...


CARDSHARK Online™ is one of the world's leading resources for gambling and poker research. Our site is unique in a sense that it deals with the controversial subject of crooked gambling, and card cheating in particular.

With the booming popularity of poker, especially Texas Hold'em, serious poker players know that to be truly informed they cannot ignore the reality that cheating has always been a part of the poker scene. Although there is no shortage of ignorant people that are quick to ridicule anyone that even suggests that cheating is a usual occurrence in poker rooms as well as other gambling venues, the reality is that ignorant "skeptics" have always been the best marks for professional card cheats.

If casinos, who do know a thing or two about gambling, also believed that cheating is not a real occurrence, they would not bother spending their resources on state of the art surveillance equipment. So, if cheating is a reality in casinos, are we to believe that it is non-existent in unregulated gambling venues, such as home poker games and underground card rooms... and not to mention, televised poker tournaments?

With ten full years of service, CARDSHARK Online™ remains the leading resource for anyone researching the subject of crooked gambling.

"This is the web site that will forever change the way you look at gambling, poker, blackjack and card games in general... the materials presented on CARDSHARK Online™ are meticulously researched, and the text exceptionally well written... the absorbing descriptions are just a topping for what is probably the best single archive on the subject of card cheating in the World."
