Book Description

For all of you that have always thought that you would never understand the game of craps, here is a resource that is both comprehensive and readable. Yeazel has been a dealer and supervisor for crap games for over thirty years and has taught literally thousands of people to play the game. This experience has no doubt helped him to refine his explanations and to understand the common obstacles to learning craps. The fact that he also written articles for several magazines also speaks for his qualifications to write a book on the game.

The ebook is well illustrated and is also humorous in places, albeit in a jaded sort of way. The fact that the author refers to himself as a “crap dealer” instead of the more modern usage of “craps dealer” should give the reader an indication that they are reading a no bullshit – old fashioned approach to the game.

Although the title suggests the game of craps is beatable, the author insists there is no way to beat a game consisting of fixed percentage bets in the long run. He does, however, claim to teach the reader how to lose less and win more through money management and choosing only the best bets on the table.

The bottom line is: for less than the cost of a minimum bet and an hour's worth of reading, you can have a total understanding of the game and a system that will enable you to capitalize on a big hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok for the beginner December 31, 2009
By Steve
Format:Kindle Edition
Most of this book is dedicated to basic game play. It does a fair job of explaining the various bets and which ones are "sucker" bets. I agree with the other review in that I was looking for some ways to "Win at Craps".

According to my Kindle:
1-57% is basic game play + the various bets
57-66% is table etiquette
66-83% is how to "win". It covers some good and bad strategies.
83-100% is the glossary

As you can see, only 17% of this book is dedicated to craps strategy. Now I'm not saying the other parts of the book don't have merit, but for someone that knows how to play craps they are a refresher course. The glossary is fun, but, again, not what I wanted from this book. I did like the section that talked about pressing your bets. I found this advice valuable.

It took me about 2 hours to read the entire book, so don't expect an epic journey. But, all in all, a fun read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good teaching book with a solid strategy! January 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've played craps for 20 years and it is my favorite casino game because no other player can affect the game. The dice are going to randomly roll based on true percentages. Blackjack on the other hand is influenced by beginning players not understanding when to take a card.

Mr Yeazel's book will teach the beginner all the bets available on a crap layout, the payouts and the house percentage. If you want to enjoy the game, these are all things you should know and understand.

His strategy involves hanging in there until you happen to get in on one of those long rolls that seldom happen, and taking advantage when they do!

In all my years of playing craps I've only been involved with about 5 really long rolls...and I did make decent money. If I had been using Mr Yeazel's strategy I would have made BIG money!

It's a good, no non-sense book and I recommend it to any crap player.

Mr. Yeazel provides a thorough guide to the game of craps in a concise and easy to understand manner. I highly recommend it to everyone, from students to seasoned professionals. The table of contents is particularly helpful as are the many illustrations. If you want to have an advantage and improve on your knowledge of craps, this is the ebook for you.

Supossed dealer writes a novel but dismisses on of the major bets (i.e., Come Bets) without comments or discussion of odds or why he dismisses it.

More About the Author

Dale S. Yeazel is a thirty-three year veteran of the casino industry who has worked as a dealer, supervisor and instructor for many casinos in Las Vegas and on the Mississippi River. Feeling the need to pass on the classic methods of dealing the game of craps that he was fortunate enough to receive from "Strip Dealers School" in 1977: he wrote and published "Precision Crap Dealing" as an ebook in 1994.

Since then he has published three more ebooks: "Dealing Mini-Baccarat", "How to Play and Win at Craps as told by a Las Vegas crap dealer", and "Playing Pai Gow Poker." He has also written dozens of articles for several gaming magazines. He has contributed to the industry website dicedealer.com.

His new website http://www.casinogamesteacher.com/ sells all of his ebooks for immediate download. This site has also created a buzz in the worldwide casino industry because of the free drill programs he makes available for casino dealers. There has also been interest in the re-prints of his articles that are available free of charge. Some of the more popular ones offer concise explanations of the games "pai gow tiles" and "faro".

His works contain the most concise yet complete explanations for casino games available today. Yet he offers no "sure fire systems" for beating the games. There is an old Vegas adage that goes something like this; "If this guy has such a sure thing, why is he selling books?"
