I am surprised that there aren't any posts about the book written by Frank Barstow "Beat The Casino." In it, there are various betting systems that are brilliant. I do not want to go over any of the systems in this post. But for those of you who have read the book, what do you think about the strategies mentioned?
31 Parlay System - it was said that an old man played this one strategy for a living
The 2 - 5 system
Barstow system - the only system that Frank Barstow is willing to lend his own name because he believes it is worth its weight. The other name he was planning to give it was "Royal roads to riches"
There are many systems mentioned in the book but these are the 3 that really stood out.
"Super Martingale" doesn't sound brilliant to me. I've never read it, but just seeing that associated with him from a quick Google search, I'd rather not read it.
Great book for the non AP
Great book, for cover, for the AP, in some games.
The ignorant, for both of those above, will rant and rave and foam at the mouth, without actually having read the book.
There are 22 used copies on Amazon, starting at one cent.
