Scamapalooza 48 – Card Counting With Dale Sadler

Imagine you’re a professional magician, performing a few card tricks at function when you’re approached by a mysterious stranger who wants to make use of your unique set of skills.

He wants to turn you into a card counter.

That's exactly what happened to Dale Sadler, a magician turn card counter who spent years making his living winning at blackjack at casinos across Australia. From almost coming to blows with little old ladies intent on stealing his chips to midnight meetings with dodgy characters wearing paper bags on their heads, Dale has led an extraordinary life.

In this episode, Dale explains how to card counts, how to gain access to the high rollers room, how to avoid getting caught and why he gave it all up.
