Hey guess what? It turns out craps is more than just rolling some dice and losing money! Who knew?
This is the most comprehensive craps book ever written and the only book that gives you everything you need to know to get a real edge at this popular casino game - including the secrets behind the revolutionary 'Golden Touch' dice control technique. Beyond the physical aspect of throwing dice, this indispensable volume will also teach you the mental side of the game, helping you to develop the discipline needed to beat the house. "Casino Craps" also comes with a free instructional DVD featuring unedited footage of controlled shots from four of the world's best players, allowing you to see how theory can be turned into reality.
So...a golden throw technique is technically cheating, right?

What does it take to win at poker? According to Poker Winners Are Different author Dr. Alan Schoonmaker, it takes more than knowing when to hold them and when to fold them. It takes the ability to manage risk and information, develop discipline, improve your decision making, focus on the right issues, control your reactions and the information you give others, and the ability to act decisively. If you're ready to win, pick up this book and see if old Schoonmaker really has what it takes to help you walk away a winner.

I was surfing a bit this morning and found an interesting post called Who Owns Las Vegas over at About.com's Casino Gambling blog. I've never had much need to join most of the casino loyalty programs since my trips to Vegas are so rare and spotty, but I thought the description of MGM's new M Life program was worth mentioning:
Right now, MGM Resorts is kicking off a casino loyalty program that rivals the old Harrah's program. Their new player's club, called "M life," will include a dozen properties. Your casino action will automatically be updated from every casino in the group, from the MGM Grand Detroit, the Beau Rivage and Gold Strike in Mississippi, to the company's nine resorts in Las Vegas. In case you lost track, the Vegas casinos include: Aria, Bellagio, Luxor, Excalibur, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Mirage, Monte Carlo, and New York New York.
If you're on your way to Vegas anytime soon (or Detroit or Mississippi, but that seems less likely) it seems worthwhile to sign up
since I can almost guarantee you'll end up at one or more of these casinos during your stay.

Season 7 of everybody's favorite Monday night poker show started this past Monday, and if that's not enough to make you forget about football, nothing can. This year the buy-in has been increased from $20,000 to $100,000 - which means the final pot will be half a million dollars.
The lineup for this week's episodes include some of the best players in the world such as John Juanda, Erick Lindgren, Phil Galfond, Huck Seed, Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey.
The episodes of this high-stakes winner-take-all freezeout will air at 2:05 a.m. beginning Monday and will continue for five consecutive nights in the same time slot. The "director's cut" of the program will recap all of the week's action late Saturday night at 1:00 a.m. after the conclusion of Saturday Night Live.
On top of all that, hostess Leann Tweeden
is piping hot - you decide. What could possibly keep you away...from Tivoing it?

For a lot of neophyte gamblers, the only reason to hit the casino is for the free drinks you get at the table. While this is a nice perk, you may want to keep your drinking to a relative minimum - not only will you stay sharper, you'll also keep out of trouble.
Having a drink at the casino while playing poker isn't anything to write home about. Over New Year's Eve, it wouldn't even be unusual to have quite a few drinks as part of the night's festivities. But one man at the Star City Casino in Sydney, Australia may have gone a bit far by having an incredible 42 drinks served to him at the poker table over a 17-hour period, resulting in severe consequences for several casino employees.
