Subtle as a freight train, that Scoblete. Either that, or his definition of going "underground" is hyping dice influencing in books, holding seminars in casinos, and advertising dice control on the radio and in newspapers and magazines. Scott rated it it was amazing Jun 07, This book is about those few. Here's what he had to say about me.

The Craps Underground - A Review. That was my initial impression of Scoblete's new book which I posted on the message board a few weeks back. Now I've had a chance to re-read the book a couple of times and fully digest it. Fortunately, I acquired one of the pre-release copies of the book, gratis. I read a lot. I spend an hour and a half each work day on a train, so I go through books quickly.
In my library, I have probably 40 to 50 books on craps specifically or gambling in general. In all the gambling books I've read, I can unequivocally say that no matter how poorly written or conceived the book was, I've always found some redeeming quality in the book.
The Craps Underground is the exception. If a good gambling book is like a delicious filet mignon, this book is more akin to the stuff they feed people on the TV show, Fear Factor. For arguments sake, we'll assume that "Millions" means something more than one or two million, ten million would be a reasonable starting point, and it's at least implied that it also means millions in net profit.
Last spring, Frank Scoblete estimated that there are fewer than skilled "dice controllers" operating in the US. Except for a few rather well bankrolled shooters, there is no evidence that the average dice controller is showing that kind of profit. Yes, many dice influencers are consistently profitable but the title alone, and I'll repeat myself here, is unadulterated hype.
So, now let's get into the book a bit. Chapter one opens with Scoblete having a marathon winning session with the dicecoach , Beau Parker. Here's how Scoblete describes the session with the dicecoach This session, and these warm expressions of friendship for the dicecoach occurred just a few months prior to the formation of GTC. I'll get back to that later. Let's dive a little further into this drivel. In the early chapters, we get to hear Scoblete wax poetically about "the Captain," again.
We will be in Phoenix in early March and it appears that no local casinos have craps. Is there any casinos outside Phoenix that do? Craps is not allowed in Arizona casinos. Just talking about this last night, in fact. Silly, I know, and I don't know why off-hand. Video craps is in most casinos though. About 4 hours from Phoenix. The reason there are no craps, I believe, is that it's one of the few games where people can strategically win The reason there is no craps is because of the "great compromise" that was reached when reservation gaming was first proposed.
You can imagine all the opposition that was raised, from gaming interests to religious groups and everything in between.
It was agreed that there would only be slots and no "felt" or booze. Now you can't even turn on the radio without hearing a commercial for poker tournaments on the rez. This is very similar to the legal OTBs, such as Armadillo Grill, that have popped up, but still no sport books. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
