    Default Scobe's New Dice-Control Book

    I AM A DICE CONTROLLER is out now!
    I don't usually push a book this hard but I want everyone to read my new one, I Am a Dice Controller: Inside the World of Advantage-Play Craps! (Available now on Amazon.com and in book stores.)


    The advance sales of the book have been so good that my publisher decided to skip the May 1 publication date and make it available right now.


    The book does have techniques of dice control and betting in it but the real thrust are the men and women who did what many consider to be impossible --- beat the game of craps with a controlled throw. Some of you might know some of these people. I do tell their true stories and, in fact, you might get upset by some of these.


    This book is about people but not just the great and good ones but some of the louses and crooks in the dice control (dice influencing) community. I do not spare anyone, including myself. In addition, I'll take you behind the scenes of television shows I've written and participated in (doing television is a whole other world).


    This is a no-holds-barred book. I think by the end your mind will be boggled.

    I moved this to AP forum, but maybe it belongs in voodoo?
    Didn't Wong eventually denounce dice control?

    So he holds out belief still that is IS feasible ...
    ... but like poker it is hard to quantify, verify, and calibrate to BR.

    Here's a study release that may prove DC theory.

    "Theoretically the die throw is predictable, but the accuracy required for determining the initial position is so high that practically it approximates a random process," said Marcin Kapitaniak, a Ph.D. student at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. "Only a good magician can throw the die in the way to obtain the desired result."

    Interesting, I'll have to look at that theory when I have more time. Apparently Wong appears to believe that it can be done.

    Science schmience. What would they know? There are posts from you in the ZZ archives where you very much seem to be in favour of using mind control to affect cards, roulette balls, dice and ... pit critters. So if Scobe says he is a successful Diceman, maybe he is also proficient at using Mind Control as well... I would have thought you would be a believer. Scobe professes to be always a man of integrity who tells the truth. If he says it can be done and that he has done it successfully over a long period, I believe him.

    For Scobe:

    Has anyone noticed the bigger tables lately or over time at craps? Maybe longer is the appropriate term. In any event, NOT being an experienced craps player or dice controller, with the rules that you MUST hit the back wall in most places AND the increase in length of the table, how is dice controlling feasible? You would have to be a robot to accurately set and throw the dice. Even "Iron Byron", the machine that can be set to hit a golf ball the same way (angle of descent, speed, etc.) each time will have a different result with each golf ball hit. It just seems an impossibility to me.............though I might be convinced to set and throw the dice in possibly SOME manner to lower the chance of 7 being thrown.............maybe.

    Always looking for a new AP play.........since holecarding (not reliable or dependable)and counting (conditions are worsening) are not going to be fruitful on a continuing basis. Though I still try and try to make it a profitable (make that reasonably profitable) enterprise.
