Frank Scoblete signs four-book deal with Triumph Books, a division of Random House12 October 2009
Frank Scoblete, casino gaming's No. 1 author, has just signed a four-book deal with Triumph Books, a division of Random House, one of the world's biggest publishers.
Frank will be writing two books on craps, one on blackjack and one on slots.
Frank stated, "I was really honored to be contacted by such a big publisher. My books have always been excellent sellers but I think Triumph Books will be able to hit markets that I have not been in. I am really pleased working with them on this line of books."
Frank's first two books will be Casino Craps: Shoot to Win! and Beat Blackjack Now! Both books will take players from how to play the games, how to bet, right through advantage-play techniques.
Frank explained: "I want the readers to be able to go from novice to winner in both books. In Casino Craps: Shoot to Win! I will teach how the game is played, the best bets to make, how to play the 5-Count, money management techniques, comps and then I will go through all the steps necessary to become a controlled shooter. There will be answers to most of the craps questions players have from novice to controlled shooter. I want this to be the most complete book ever written on the game of craps."
Frank's plans for his blackjack book, Beat Blackjack Now!, are no less ambitious. "The book is in three parts. Part one is how the game is played, the correct basic strategies for various numbers of decks, money management and comps. The second part of the book will deal with advanced advantage play. I will thoroughly go through the newest and easiest advantage-play method ever developed for blackjack - the Speed Count. I'll also have the new basic strategy to be used with Speed Count. Speed Count can be learned in about 15 minutes."
But Frank's blackjack book will go even further. He will have three little-known or new advantage-play techniques as well.
"The third part of the book," says Frank, "will contain strategies for Spanish 21, a game that has become quite popular in various parts of the country. If you use the right strategies at Spanish 21 you can cut the house edge to about four-tenths of one percent in many of the games."
Frank's third and fourth books will be, respectively, an advanced book on craps with strategies never before written about and a slot book that breaks new territory for slot players. His slot book will have a complete discussion of all aspects of the machines, including slots where the players can actually get an edge.
"I am really happy about these four books and I think they will be the best books I have ever written. I am working hard on the first two now."
