you know some pro gamblers, right? they don't often play roulette, do they?
Any true pro's won't touch it. There are gamblers that pretend to be advantage players that believe they can beat it in the long run. But those people are as delusional as the guys that think they can beat slots long term (and sadly, those people exist).
Poker, sports betting, blackjack (optimal strategy if you can't count cards), and video poker (9-6 Jacks or Better. Optimal Strategy) are where it's at.
