I read the book, and I summarize it here so you can decide if it is for you. The author says it is a systematic way of beating the casinos. The system is composed of three elements: First is the choice of a game. It says that you play only on games with the least house edge and never play in sucker bets. His rationale: winning streaks occur less often and less long in sucker bets. (This makes sense to me.) The author then tells you the best bets (about half a dozen). Second, the system requires you to bet in simple progression: after winning 3 in a row, increase your bet by 1.5, etc., until you lose, then go back to one unit. (The author also offers variations.) His rationale: this progression maximizes your wins in the winnings sequences, but leaves you with minimal damage in the choppy sequences. (This makes sense to me too.) Third, the system tells you when to quit using some structured rules as the indicators. (The book says more.) The author has something interesting: after you win big, never quit immediately but wait till you lose 20% of your winnings.

As I see it, this is actually a "hit and run" play used by the winners. I heard this play before but this guy is the first to make it a system. The idea is to strike the hot streaks with big bets and totally avoid those long cold streaks, making the few big wins cover the small losses with a net gain in extended playing. I say this play the casinos don't like: while they cannot make a big business from you, they could bleed in your extreme luck. (Sixteen wins in a row is rare but not impossible.) Any experienced winner will tell you that "hit and run" is the only way to win.

However, this systematic "hit and run" play is not for everyone. The system requires you to have discipline, restrain, patient, valiance...

Not much to learn in this book. It's basically just a re-run of the betting systems scheme. They all say you will lose if you bet the same amount each time duhhh. After that it's just a minor variation on how to change the bets.

this book is poorly written, lots of grammatical errors, which makes it difficult to read. There is some interesting stories and author's opinions, but all this system is, is a simple progression. After winning 3 in a row, increase your bet by 1.5, etc., until you lose, then go back to one unit. Anyone who has tried this knows the choppy sequences will erase any profit. He talks about winning 16 hands in a row. How often does that happen? Almost never. Don't waste your money on this one.

There was this baccarat gambler in Vegas that I had played with many times. I swear this man was luckier, and he is very disciplined too. I thought he was some kind of a professional gambler or what. When I read this book, it hits me that this might be the system that he used.
