When you refer to me as "woman" like that, was that your way of putting me down in some back-handed way?

I asked sincerely about definitive books on craps--and on craps subjects that I mentioned I am interested in. You said there aren't any good books (other than one person's opinion) and I should rely on this forum instead. I responded, basically, that it is hard to tell the experts from the non-experts.

You hold yourself out as an expert. I commented. I did not think I was vicious. Sorry if I offended you.

I cannot believe for a second you are "speechless."

If I am the only one who thinks this way about you, Ahigh, then I owe you a double apology.

We like it when gals post here. Welcome.

Regarding books, I think the best you could get would be one that has some craps history. Avoid totally any that tell you "how to win at craps" or promote a betting system.

Be sure and check out the Wizard's videos on Craps and learn about getting the short-stick treatment and how to avoid it!

I'll let others recommend books for you. I did not intend to offend you.

I do, however, recommend AGAINST studying "dice control" if you want to just have fun playing the game.

My husband is very conservative in how he bets, but not in the amounts he bets. He plays with higher chip denominations than I am comfortable with. Though he wins a lot, it makes me nervous watching him. I'd rather he just hand over the winnings to me when he's finished.

I have watched the videos. They are very good. Thanks Wizard!

But what if you want to go to a more advance level of understanding of the game of craps? That is why I asked about books or other sources.

Thanks for your advice on avoiding books that only promote a betting system. I agree with that.

I would find another forum where people are not so rude and are more willing to help, rather than
trying to place another feature in their owns hats. Gman


In that line, I'd recommend Craps Forum. http://www.crapsforum.com/. It's a good conversational site & has a General Discussion, Beginner's Zone, and Advanced Craps sections. Nothing against this site; just giving an alternative. Anyway, the OP is obviously beyond the craps basics. I like books, too have three, including Scarne on Dice & have ordered a fourth. Both this site & Craps Forum have posts that cite books that they think are valuable. I do avoid Scoblete's books, due his, well, bias re: DI. I'm a random shooter & will always be. He's a good writer & has many good things to say other than that, so I visit his Golden Touch Craps website from time to time.

The OP wants to understand more about the math of craps, & Wikipedia is a good resource. I suggest she search "Probability," "Statistics," etc. These articles have links to other concepts within their discussions. She has mentioned "Variance," "Expected Value," etc. they're in Wikipedia, too. She can go as shallow or deep as she wants.

The book Darwin Ortiz on Casino Gambling has an excellent chapter on craps. it is available used on Amazon for a penny + shipping.

Do not make the mistake of buying any Scoblete books -- Probably one of the worst gambling writers ever.

That is why I suggested you read Patrick's book, "Advanced Craps."

Yes, he is an innumerate, chauvinistic blowhard, but that particular book is filled with a lot of useful info and suggested methods of play.

Pass line, don't pass, place betting, hedging: it is all laid out.

Tough to cut through all of his BS as you read it, though.

by experts.

She asked a simple question... are there any books that will help that have good
information...... there is and that is fairly basic.. why not not just give her
an answer...... why all the nonense????
