    Go to Amazon and look for Angelo Attoni. You'll see all his books and the "Look Inside" feature shows just a bit of the book. Still smells like a sell job. I don't know why he got so many serious responses on the forum.

    just for the record....

    I read a statement from someone who publishes or claims to have books published and proof read, yet he claims the 11 is part of an any seven bet.
    My response was my poor attempt at sarcasm, (Im going to have to read up on craps betting)
    There is something basically wrong, corrupt? off color? when someone posts a betting strategy and doesn't understand the basics of the bet he is promoting.

    It all goes back to what I've been saying for years, anybody can get a book published and they are all so-called experts, until you buy their book and read it. Then you may have a totally different opinion on your so-called expert!

    Just because its in print doesn't make it right! There have been a few books that I've read that had me laughing, about what they wrote, but at the same time one of the funniest ones I read, had a target audience that wold love to read it. It was mainly about making prop bets for the low roller, when I say low roller the book was targeted for someone that wanted to buy-in for $20.
    Thanks for the link, but it still doesn't tell you very much, and here is the rub , you would have to buy this book to find out that you made a mistake buying it! I noticed there were no reviews on the book, I think I will check back every once in a while so I can read that first review, that should make for some good reading!

    There was one comment on the roulette Blueangel strategy book. Not surprisingly it was "don't waste your money".

    What you are proposing is just an illusion. Just smoke and mirrors.

    I have a large collection of craps books. And I am a fan of Frank Scoblete. But of all the craps books I own, the one written by our very own forum member, basicstrategy777, is definitely the best.

    Any Craps is 2, 3 or 12
    1+1
    1+2
    2+1
    6+6
    That's 4 combinations.
    So there are 4 ways to win and 32 ways to lose.
    Therefore true odds for Any Craps is 32 to 4 or 8 to 1. The house pays 7 to 1. The difference is a 11.11% vig.

    Any 7 has 6 combinations.
    So thats 6 ways to win and 30 ways to lose.
    Therefore true odds for Any 7 is 30 to 6 or 5 to 1. The house pays 4 to 1, a 16.67% vig.

    Both bets have an edge for the house and not the guest.

    Just offering my opinion, which I believe has some merit since I have spent a lot of time reading about the game.

    Here, here Bek. While my reading experiences on craps are limited to three books, I will also say that 777 knows the game exceedingly well. On top of this, he knows how to interject his own experiences/beliefs into his play. Just an educated guess, but I'm thinking he knows how to succeed with his play.

    Would recommend the book to anyone who does not know everything there is to know about the game.

    That would be me :) Have many years experience, but still feel like I am learning new things or at least processing new ideas all the time.

    The writing and having printed it within the form of a book has no more merit, than claiming to have discovered a short cut to Hell for a mere $19.95.

    I am disappointed at the "regulars" of the Forum getting sucked into a debate that has no merit, no facts and nothing to argue. It is like describing the air within a balloon. Colorless. Odorless. And full of Helium which has an odd way of escaping into the ether.

    This Forum and Website will be void of any serious discussions if you get more of these self promoters, having no vision nor imagination concerning Craps and the Psychology of the Craps Player.

    Even I am embarrassed to post on this discussion. You should be as well. What a waste of time.
