Take an exclusive look inside the realm of casino Surveillance. This book gives an unprecedented access to what really goes on behind the scenes. See advantage play from a different perspective and through the lens of a camera. Learn the steps of how advantage players are detected and what type of information Surveillance looks for to catch them. This easy to follow guide will go over some of the most common things a Surveillance room would observe on a daily basis. It describes the relationship between Surveillance and AP’s and how they can avoid “tells” that are sure to bring heat.

From card counting to hole card play, this is the book they don't want you to see.

I assume that is a typo. $9.00 seems an appropriate price for this drivel, not $90.00

TDane-

How many casino surveillance personnel are in the surveillance room?

How about Las Vegas casino's only; small-medium-large; slow night, busy night?

Is it up to the casino? Or the gaming commission?

Are there typical ratio's? [# table games / # surveillance operators]

Is it against the law to tell people how to try to get away with committing a crime? Card counting is not illegal, but hole carding can be if you're using a device, right?

What a coincidence! Bob Dancer and I are trying to reach you to be a guest on our radio show to discuss your book. Please send me a Private Message to discuss this.

Buzz, I'm calling you on that one. Please explain why it is "drivel." Otherwise, I think you should retract the remark.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Maybe NOT unprecedented. But possibly still quite valuable depending on whether it simply goes over previously discussed information or trends down a new path. As a player who supports myself solely from advantage play, my thought process is that the best advantage techniques are useless if you are unable apply them anywhere. So any glimpse into the minds of surveillance is not redundant for me. Especially in today's world of rapid technological advancements. Newer material may just cover things, not only not covered but not available only a couple years ago. Information can equal advantage.
Just say no to 6:5 Blackjack, Continuous shuffle machines and Blackjack the Forum. All are Negative expected value.

And you will be paying $90 ? A simple yes or no will suffice.

I have no interest in purchasing the book. However, if I were, I'd prefer to go thru Amazon or some other recognized source.

For one thing, Amazon allows you to read the first few pages, and gives you the page count. Combined, it gives the potential buyer a real good idea of the value.

$90 may not be a typo. That's for a printed book, shipping included. But for $90, I'd want to judge it by more than just it's cover.

On the other hand, since the author is known to the Wiz, that alone would be enough to get me interested in the book - if I were interested in the topic.



Wiz -

Frankly, I was concerned about it possibly being a violation of your advertising / linking rule, particularly since he's a new member.

That said, if you're trying to contact him, there IS a contact link and email address on his web site.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I believe the Wiz stated that he is trying to contact him, not that he is known to him.
