Who is Henry Tamburin?



For over 40 years, I have been an advocate for better odds for casino players, while also teaching the general public how to play smart. I’ve done this through my magazine article and columns, newspaper columns, books, videos, seminars, lectures, courses, TV and radio appearances, and on my web site www.smartgaming.com.


I've written several casino gambling books, appeared in three instructional casino gambling videos, taught hundreds of seminars and courses, and published over 1000 articles (I believe more than any other gaming writer, dead or alive). When I’m not playing, writing, or teaching, I edit the popular Blackjack Insider e-Newsletter (for a free three-month trial subscription with full membership privileges go to www.bjinsider.com/trial).


Besides teaching classes on blackjack card counting, I also teach video poker classes. My specialty is blackjack and video poker (I’m an advantage player in both), and I’ve played in many blackjack tournaments (winning two).


My primary residence is along the Gulf Coast of Alabama (close to my three grandchildren). I also spend 40% of my time at my second house in Henderson, NV, located just 15 minutes from the Strip (my party house that was paid with my casino winnings). With special arrangement, I teach private classes in blackjack and video poker, and I also give casino gambling talks to groups and organization (call my office if interested – 1-888-353-3234).
