About Bob Dancer

Book Author

Bob Dancer is the best known video poker player and writer in the country today. Six years after initiating his career as a professional gambler in 1994 with a $6,000 bankroll and a strong desire to win, Dancer and his wife Shirley won more than $1 million during a six-month period between September 2000 and March 2001.

Shortly after this time, Bob wrote Million Dollar Video Poker, a chronicle of that time in his life.  The book also recounts the lessons learned during those six years, including how to accumulate and manage a bankroll, evaluate promotions, and coping with losing (and winning) streaks.

Bob is also a regular contributor to numerous gambling magazines including Casino Player, Strictly Slots and Anthony Curtis' Las Vegas Advisor.  Bob developed one of the best video poker simulators on the market, Win Poker, and teaches video poker gaming seminars in Las Vegas.  Even with all this activity, he still finds time to do what he does best, play video poker.
