Although he does treat volatility in a vague way, he is innumerate to a very high degree and his style of writing is insulting. In addition, his arguments in favor of place bets over come bets are very misleading, almost dishonest. It's not that there's anything particularly wrong with his methods, but they are appropriate for certain players, not for others, which he does not recognize. He calls people who play differently "dorks" and other abusive name. I have also read several books on the mathematics of gambling, but they don't really cover craps to a great extent.
There are so many factors to consider in comparing different bets and betting systems, the HA being just one of them, the variance standard deviation , the skew measure of asymmetry and kurtosis measure of peakedness also being important. A good craps simulator, like WinCraps www. To me, that has been far more valuable than any book I have read. I just checked on Amazon. A few years ago a guy on rec. I wrote a review of it and posted it on the newsgroup and sent the book back.
If anyone is interested, I will post it here. Cheers, Alan Shank. Joined: Jan 27, Messages: 53 Likes Received: 0. As to Patrick , i dont know , Scoblete -one look was enough -! The Midnight Skulker, Mar 8, The Midnight Skulker Member. The Midnight Skulker , Mar 8, I call it dreaming.

Best Books On Craps
I've won a lot of money following the advice of Darwin Ortiz in his book "Darwin Ortiz on Casino Gambling," which was later republished as "Casino Gambling for the Clueless. There is no BS factor in Ortiz as there is in Patrick who doesn't like come bets and Scoblete a dice setter! Fitz , Apr 18, The author takes the reader though all the various bets, explaining the odds and house edge, while mixing in stories and examples to make the reading more colorful.
My only complaint is the overdoing it with the promises of beating the casinos on the cover. Topics include evidence and history thus far that it works, various dice settings, the throw of the dice, what to bet on and how much. The book is no substitute for actual lessons and a lot of practice. This book covers the basics of texas hold 'em. This is a very mathematically heavy book regarding the game theory surrounding the game of poker.
I think this will be of more value to academics studying the game than those who play it only. For those who love to dig deep into the math of poker, I can't think of anything to compare. College level statistics should be a prerequisite to follow every stop, but anybody with a healthy interest in math should learn something from it. If anything, I think the book argues for a more aggressive style of bluffing than most players employ.

I enthusiastically endorse every book by gambling writer Arnold Snyder. This time he turns his attention to poker, in particular poker tournaments. Tournaments call for a much more aggressive style of play, that is less about the cards and more about the players. Snyder tells you how to beat the many players who incorrectly play tournaments like a cash game. Written in simple down to earth language. This book correctly says that there is no way to beat a fair game of roulette with a betting system.
It goes go into detail about beating unfair games of roulette by various means. In my opinion, the only humanly possible way to beat roulette, without cheating, is to find a biased wheel, which this book does address. There have been a few documented cases of this being done.
However, in the modern casinos, I believe the wheels are too well made to have an exploitable bias. Finally, I believe the wheel bias confidence chart on page 58 to be flat out wrong, and will result in a high chance of a false positive. Wong discusses how to improve your odds on everything from straight bet to exploiting many unusual bets such as parlays and teasers.
It is rather math heavy so Wong provides sample problems and solutions. This one is certainly one of the most worn out of the many gambling books on my shelves. This is an interesting and informative look inside what is probably the biggest U. The names have been changed to protect the characters, but it is commonly rumored to be about the Billy Walters organization. They let the author into their trust as a beard someone who makes bets for others for several years.
The book is about his adventures betting millions of dollars a year on sports. Dancer milked video poker for all it was worth and this is the story of how he did it, from a bankroll of a few thousand to over a million. Video poker today is not as lucrative as it was in the nineties but it is still informative and an enjoyable read.
I have never seen the topic of this book discussed much before, let alone an entire book about it. The book itself is the size of a small phone book, so packs a lot of content. However, if progressive hunting is something you do, or think you might do, I think this book is must reading.

This page book contains a close to perfect strategy for jacks or better, deuces wild, and joker poker. There are also chapters briefly covering other games as well as a host of video poker related topics. The writing is a bit dry but the math seems very solid. This is the best overall book on video poker I have seen. Great title. This could just as easily be classified as a humor book as a gambling book.
