ThePOGG Posts an Interview with Ken Smith

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

Have you heard of ThePOGGThePOGG? ThePOGG is “The Player’s Online Gambling Guide”, a site created by an experienced online casino player who does casino reviews and dispute resolution for online gamblers.

This week, the site’s creator posted an interview with me.  Among the wide-ranging topics are a story about how I was actually too lucky at one promo, a back story of how randomly generated literature eventually led to my interest in gambling, and other tales from a life at the tables. I hope that BlackjackInfo visitors will find it interesting.

Ken Smith on Gambling With an Edge Podcast

Gambling with an Edge

Earlier this year, I was the guest on the Gambling With an Edge radio show in Las Vegas. I mentioned it in the BlackjackInfo email newsletter, but I just realized that it never got posted here on the blog.

The show includes a couple of stories that I think BlackjackInfo visitors will find interesting. I describe one play where I won over $100,000 on a single hand of cards, and another play at a 2:1 blackjack promotion that yielded a big profit along with an uncomfortable situation.

You can listen to the show, and see more details at Gambling With an Edge.
