Stanford Wong Explores Skill-Shooting in 'Wong on Dice'

Stanford Wong, author of Sharp Sports Betting; Professional Blackjack and Casino Tournament Strategy, is well known for his timely, accurate and groundbreaking books. In Wong on Dice (190 pages, paperbound,Howard SchwartzHoward Schwartz, the "librarian for gamblers," is the marketing director for Gambler's Book Club in Las Vegas, a position he has held since 1979. Author of hundreds of articles on gambling, his weekly book reviews appear in numerous publications throughout the gaming industry.  Howard's website is  $24.95), he directs his attention to the art of "skill shooting."

Wong delves, explores and illuminates the latest craze for crapshooters -- pre-setting dice -- controlling them and delivering them in such a way that certain numbers do or do not show up as often as probability dictates they should.

The book does not neglect the beginner. It explains the basics, the different bets, the house edge; the table layout.

Controlling dice requires skill, practice, camouflage, patience, deception. Wong teaches you what he's learned and then some. You can also expect some mental and physical fatigue.

This is a fascinating book. The people Wong met, those who influenced him, what he believed and now believes all make for good reading.

The section on the casino reaction to dice setters and how Wong learned dice control are some of the best. Wong as usual, writes short, compactly and cleanly. His style is highly readable.

He references concepts and material from books written by "Yuri," Frank Scoblete and Sharpshooter. He has absorbed, synthesized and reorganized some of the most important material and presents it in a highly understandable manner. It's well-priced and well-presented.
