Art/Literary - Games / Video Games / Gaming / Casino / title of book about succesful gambler
|Spanish term or phrase: book title|
|I've been asked to translate a book title. It is about a mathematical genius from Mendoza, Argentina, who put his talents to gambling and was so successful that he now owns a load of Casinos, Bingo parlours and race horces|
EL MENDOCINO: UNA VIDA TRAS EL JUEGO
At the moment, I have:
THE MAN FROM MENDOZA: A LIFETIME IN GAMING
I am trying to avoid using the word GAMBLING, as I don't want to suggest that he is a ludopath, but I am still not very satisfied with my title. Anybody have any bright ideas
|English translation:Beating the Odds|
Gaming sounds real ugly.

|I love this suggestion although, unfortunately I cannot use it (see my comments above). Tell you what, if they ask me to do the book, I will definitely propose this title!|
Don't agree with you that gaming sounds 'real ugly' though.
