It should be safe to say that the origins of card cheating are as old as the first card game. If you are going to play cards you should learn a few facts about card cheating. This is of course not to say that you should cheat - you should only learn what to look for.
Cheating with cards is a widespread occurrence. Methods range from the most simple tricks used by amateur card cheats and opportunists, all the way to the most sophisticated orchestrated scams. In addition cheats can be cashing in on pennies or millions at the time.
Cheating is "any deliberate action during a game of chance or skill, that alters the outcome of the game". The outcome of the game is of course altered for the benefit of the cheat, in one way or another. If you know what to look for, you stand a better chance at detecting card cheating. In this site I offer thorough information about card cheating. The knowledge you gain here is intended for your protection only and not to be applied in a game of cards. My intention is to help good card players get even better by educating them about the illegitimate aspect of the game.
