Some people will do anything for money. Take Brian Zembic, recipient of the world’s most notorious boob job. After a fellow gambler bet $100,000 that Brian wouldn’t subject himself to the breast implants he so admired in women, Brian found himself going under the knife to become a 38C – and $100,000 richer.
Anchored by this incredible tale, gambling expert Michael Konik introduces listeners to the quirky subculture of high rollers and hustlers in dozens of other outrageous true stories profiling gamblers who make wagering a way of life.
You’ll meet the man who turned $10,000 into $17 million with a pair of dice, the man responsible for determining the point spread of the Super Bowl, and the world’s most notorious golf hustler. In addition to the bizarre and hilarious escapades of hard-core gamblers, Konik shares insider tips for how to score more in comps than you lose at the tables, how to identify casino games that should be avoided, and how to gain a legal advantage over the house.
In this rollicking collection of stories, Konik celebrates the glamour, glitz, and excitement of gambling culture in Vegas and beyond, giving listeners a behind-the-tables look at one of the nation’s most lucrative entertainment industries.
