Given the sentence:

"<> all the fools that would take that gamble, he doesn't seem to be one."

what preposition should be used in the place of <>?

I'm thinking either "of", "for" or "from", leaning more towards the former, but I'd like some confirmation.

@StepW,
I would use 'of'.

"Former" means one of a choice of two. The other one is the latter.
So here, use "first".
You're welcome.
