But it is better to say that it is a former threat. The book tells about his risky ventures all over the world. Also his team of "helpers," which followed him and improved the cheating skills, is mentioned. The book is a very interesting and breathtaking adventure to the world of the cheaters, their values and beliefs.

We Have a Winner! Card counting at blackjack works, dice control works, optimum strategies at video poker work. They want the edge handed to them.
These types of casino gamblers are the welfare recipients of Lady Luck. Systems buyers want a system that is so easy to use a complete fool could use it. Even the supremely easy card-counting system, which I write about in my book Beat Blackjack Now! You have to add 1 plus 1 plus 1 and then occasionally subtract a small number from the total. For the system buyers this is just too much work. The system seller knows how to get people to buy his or her stuff. He will write copious amounts of copy praising his product — liberally thrown in will be anecdotes and testimonials from people who have played the system and won hundreds, thousands, or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
These people may or may not actually exist but who cares? The idea is to bombard the reader with so many words and so much positive information that his defenses are ultimately shattered and he will open his checkbook or pull out her credit card and buy the product.
Obviously, I am not opposed to people selling or buying products about gambling. After all, I sell my own books, DVDs, and my speaking engagements. There are many magazines with contributions from many established gambling authorities, many of which are also selling books and other products. There is a gambling-writing industry after all and I am a part of it. So how can you tell the difference between a legitimate seller of gambling information and a systems seller of bogus information?
There might be such a thing as card counting at blackjack but there is no guarantee that you will become any good at it if you try it. Dice control is real but it is not an easy thing to master. No systems seller is going to tout his system by telling you that it is not guaranteed; that you might not learn it or that your talent could be lacking. That would be economic suicide. The systems seller needs to sell vast quantities of his system in order to make money.
When I first started my foray in the world of casino gambling I did buy a lot of systems — to see what they were like and, to be honest, praying that they would work. I used it in Atlantic City and the only thing it found me were stares from people who thought I was crazy as I walked through the casino with such a strange looking cheap cardboard thingy.
I bought several systems for blackjack. The craps system that most impressed me in its ad promised that I would win 83 percent of my decisions. You have 30 ways to win and a mere six ways to lose when the 7 showed. The 7 shows about 17 percent of the time — thus your winning percentage was about 83 percent. The problem came in right away — that 7 blasted all your bets into losers, while your winning was always curtailed by concomitant losing. You could win on the 6, for example, but you would then lose the Field bet.
The system seller knew what he was doing, of course. He was not lying in the traditional sense. His system did win 83 percent of the time. But it was not a winning system. This systems seller was the master of equivocation — he just made you think what he meant was that the system would give you long-term wins; he never actually said it.
Today the Internet is host to hundreds, maybe thousands, of systems sellers. You can read long, drawn out advertisements for their systems. Many of them claim that they are retiring from gambling life and want to share with you their miraculous system before they go to the fancy island they just bought.
Personally I think the only island they should be allowed to inhabit is Alcatraz. His books are available at smile. Author fscobe Posted on.
