I can understand your desire or itch to try your hand at proffesional gambling.
You have not emailed so i assume you want to learn from your own mistakes. Ok.
I will suggest a good option for you though.
1 ) Choose a casino of your choice ( @ vegas, would suggest the venetian for serveral million reasons )
2 )Open up a bank account with them by depositing say $ 5 000 into it
( you will automatically be noticed and will recieve many hotel benefits, its a perk.. )
3 ) Discipline my friend is the key, trust me i know ! DONT GO TO THE CASINO WITH ANY MONEY!!!!!! withdraw say $ 200 from your account.
4 ) Express your desire and play as you please. Craps is the best game if you understand it well. Anyhow as soon as you have say $ 400 in your hand, GO DEPOSIT the 200 you withdrew and keep doing this every 200 bucks you make. If you loose the initial 200, well thats beyond this discussion and is covered in gambling for intermediates.
The trick is to know when to play and when to watch. Here in australia, unlike usa, the only way i play bj ; is to play at least 4 boxes at a time, with minimum bets on the last box which you can use as a sacrifice box to save the others if you are skillfull enough.
Also if you look for a really good player ( usually a chong ) we can bet behind his bet, so we are benefiting from his gameplay, so you gota look for a good player to back.
By doing this for about 6 years, i have at the moment around $ 390 000
in my account at sydney casino ( started with $ 20 000 ).
Every time i go i only withdraw $ 10 000 and usually at the end of the night after shouting many a table to midori splices and neat white sambuca i still get to bank about $ 28 000.
Lastly always remember there is luck in odd and prim numbers
