    You should also read "Forever Craps" by Frank Scoblete. This is the first book I read when I started playing. Really opened my eyes to the game and became even more interested in learning this game.

    Medansky made the mistake of joining Gambling Forums where he was promptly chased off by the peasants who had some tough questions about the above book. Tough crowd!

    OK I'm still a beginner and haven't read any of the traditional master craps books that are continuously discussed here...but through osmosis I gaining some understanding of the strategies they explain.

    From the 'you can bet on that' website I did download the PDF 'how a math wizard plays craps' and that's how I learned the basics. I read and re-read that on my tablet when the XO watches her shows on the telly and I'm there solely for the keeping her company.

    So props to all you wizards talking/debating about the great books that's why I'm here...

    ...like a parasite I will suck it up for free, but I promise to be a good parasite.:rolleyes:

    777 has written a craps book that has received good reviews (link below). I believe several members on this forum have bought copies of the book. I'm actually giving away a copy of the book to the winner of a contest that is currently underway (sorry, deadline was last week). Might be one for your consideration.

    A Great Christmas Gift.....

    777's manual is great, but if that is not available you can find copies of the "Dice Doctor" on the internet. Great material, has an interesting way of phrasing things as Sam wrote like he spoke.

    It is a holdover from Usenet, where it was usually written as *plonk*. Usenet was originally an extension of the UNIX operating system, which had a messaging system, which in turn had a "killfile" in which users could list other users from whom they did not wish to receive messages and e-mail, and the operating system would block them. To let someone know you were ignoring them -- this was not required BTW -- you sent them a message (or posted a reply to them on the applicable newsgroup) ending with *plonk*.

    I trust you will invoke the now-standard response to such a lengthy, and more importantly, unsolicited explanation. I am beginning to feel ignored not being ignored. :oops:
