Review: American Casino Guide 2017 Edition This book feels like one of those old Yellow Pages Phonebooks you find on your driveway every year. The feeling you get is ‘Hasn’t the internet made you obsolete?’ but yet you end up finding yourself reaching the book in times of need. Ok, the book has different parts, first part defines games casinos, and the other part has information about casinos, places and includes phone numbers websites and more information. The last part is the coupons part. So, do you need this book? In 2017 you honestly do not need to carry around a book like this when you have your phone with you. You can google all the shit that this book offers, even the coupons I guess. But that being said, if you are one of those people who want to hold a hard copy in the field (field being the Vegas Strip in this situation I guess) this book might be a good addition to your fanny pack. Description (from amazon.com) The 2017 American Casino Guide provides casino-goers with money-saving, detailed information that can be helpful for both seasoned casino veterans, as well as first-time casino visitors. Anyone who is looking to…

The World’s Greatest Blackjack Book
Blackjack , Book Reviews / July 14, 2017

Review: The World’s Greatest Blackjack Book Ok, you kind of know how I usually approach ambitious titles, I honestly think it’s inappropriate to title the book you wrote ‘The World’s Greatest X Book’, I mean even if it is actually the greatest book about that subject. This book though is written by someone who has a Ph.D. on the subject, so it might actually be the best book about the subject. The book starts on a more philosophical tone, and asks questions like Who Pays For the Glitter? Why Play Blackjack and the Losing Frame of Mind and covers both the roads for winning and losing. Part two focuses on the game, the rules and basic plays, errors, strategies, and everything related to the mechanics of the game.  Part three dives into subjects like where to play, choosing a casino, the best kind of dealer, where you can play in the States and Canada. The entire part four deals with the dealer (pun intended). Actually, I personally find this part very interesting because it’s usually an overlooked part of the game but it’s a very important part of the game in my opinion. Part five teaches you how to Play Smart (without a system) and…

Blackjack: Everything You Need To Know About Blackjack From Beginner To Expert
Blackjack , Book Reviews / July 14, 2017

Review of Blackjack: Everything You Need To Know About Blackjack From Beginner To Expert Ok, whenever I see a book that says it covers EVERYTHING from beginner stuff to expert stuff I start to suspect that it’s going to deliver anything good at all. It’s a big statement and mission to freaking cover EVERYTHING you need to know about any given thing in life in a book. But, this book delivers at least most of what it claims. It’s a great introduction book and, the writer Ian Dunross does kind of a good job in organizing the book. The book starts with the history of Blackjack and has an 8-page chapter for Introduction to Blackjack. It then goes to explain the Blackjack Rules, Math and Odds, Strategy, and Tips and then shares some common playing mistakes. Personally naming a chapter ‘Card Counting – Ultimate Secret to Blackjack success’ sounds a little fishy to me, but if that floats your boat, this book has a good chapter on that too. The author then goes on to explore myths and superstitions about blackjack and gives you direction for playing online. This does not feel like EVERYTHING one needs to know about blackjack, but…

Good Teams Win, Great Teams Cover: An Underdog’s Tale of Life, Gambling and Sharp Sports Betting
Book Reviews , Sports Betting / July 14, 2017

Description (from amazon.com) I will teach you how to win more bets, but first a story… I was hungover. I had spent the previous night in an Italian bar trying to convince naïve girls that I was Jason Sehorn of the New York Giants. This was my move. It wasn’t particularly effective, but it was the best I had… The next morning I found myself on a train going from Bologna to Rome. I was young, and this would be my first visit to the ancient city. As luck would have it, I was seated next to Evelyn O’Reilly. Evelyn was a stunning foreign exchange student from Dublin, and we hit if off. We hit if off so well that when she got to her stop in Florence she invited me to join her for the weekend. In a moment of sheer madness, I politely declined. I had the next few hours to contemplate what had just happened, and I became paralyzed by my own stupidity. What the hell was wrong with me? I had an amazing opportunity, but I was too damn dumb to realize it. This exquisite creature exited my life forever, only to revisit every now and…

Trading Bases: How a Wall Street Trader Made a Fortune Betting on Baseball
Sports Betting / July 13, 2017

Original Description (from Amazon.com Page) An ex–Wall Street trader improved on Moneyball’s famed sabermetrics and beat the Vegas odds with his own betting methods. Here is the story of how Joe Peta turned fantasy baseball into a dream come true. Joe Peta turned his back on his Wall Street trading career to pursue an ingenious—and incredibly risky—dream. He would apply his risk-analysis skills to Major League Baseball, and treat the sport like the S&P 500. In Trading Bases, Peta takes us on his journey from the ballpark in San Francisco to the trading floors and baseball bars of New York and the sportsbooks of Las Vegas, telling the story of how he created a baseball “hedge fund” with an astounding 41 percent return in his first year. And he explains the unique methods he developed. Along the way, Peta provides insight into the Wall Street crisis he managed to escape: the fragility of the midnineties investment model; the disgraced former CEO of Lehman Brothers, who recruited Peta; and the high-adrenaline atmosphere where million-dollar sports-betting pools were common.
