Craps

Meyer Joel Bendavid

Craps by Meyer Joel BendavidCraps - For the beginning or more advanced player Craps is the only cacino game offering the best odds for the players. Most players look for the "hot table" where many numbers are being thrown before the 7 appears. Imagine using selective dice settings, and a way of throwing that works toward that goal. If you look at the left side of each die and there is a 66, 55, or 44 and you spin to get the 16 combinations, you would find four 7's.

The Expert at the Card Table

S. W. Erdnase

The Expert at the Card Table by S. W. ErdnaseOriginally entitled Artifice Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table, is probably the most cited and referenced book about card gambling moves - a classic in the history of magic literature. A must read for any card magician or aspiring gambling expert and an indespensable reference book. While the authorship of this book is hotly debated we are convinced it was Edward Gallaway. (For a detailed work on the search for Erdnase see Hurt McDermott's Artifice, Ruse & Erdnase.)

[A copy of this book is also included in Michael McDougall's Card Mastery. This ebook is also available in a German translation.

This book was rated one of the ten basic books for a working library of conjuring by H. Adrian Smith,...

However, Bart Whaley's research revealed that this retired professional was Gerrit M. Evans, that his real name was most likely Edward M. Grandin and that Evans/Grandin was not a professional gambler. (Bart is working on an upcoming book about Evans - The Mysterious Gambler.)

This ebook was created from the 1868 edition. There is also an earlier 1865 edition. The 1868 faked edition drops the name of the author who is, of course, Evans/Grandin, pretends that the "anonymous" author is a...

Blue Book 1960

Blue Book 1960 by KC Card CoJust 15 years after WWII, life was good. As the world rebuilt itself, prosperity reigned. Returning soldiers who needed an outlet to keep their competitive edge found what they were looking for in gambling. Neighborhood poker games, back-alley craps, and illegal casinos were everywhere if you knew where to look. Grifters followed the money trail, too, and not all of them relied on skill. Many used devices such as holdouts, shiners, gaffed cards and crooked dice to ensure that they fleeced the lambs just as surely as if the marks openly handed their cash to the swindler.

Catering to the demand...
