Summary

Summary

In the summer of 1966, Norman Leigh took a team to the Casino Municipale in Nice with the express intention of systematically winning large sums of money at roulette. Two weeks later, his team was banned from every casino in France--not because they had cheated or behaved badly, but simply because they had won--methodically and consistently. Thirteen Against the Bank is a wry and detailed account of a true event that all expert opinion deemed impossible: beating the bank at roulette. It reveals how Leigh assembled and bankrolled his crew of thirteen, instilling in them the discipline and stamina to bring off this coup and then apply it using a system known as the Reverse Labouchere betting progression. An all-time casino gambling classic.
