Richard Munchkin Story: The Master of Advantage Play
By Michael Kaplan

As his name would imply, Richard Munchkin started small. As his high-flying status among professional gamblers confirms, however, he did not remain that way. In fact, he ranks among the most astute, most successful advantage players in the business.

Years ago, I had a chat with Stanford Wong, an icon of advantage playing who turned to book publishing after he got too hot to make a serious go of it in the casinos. I was unschooled on the ins and outs of the high-stakes world and felt compelled to get a handle on Munchkin. I asked Wong what he thought Munchkin’s strong suit was. “Richard Munchkin’s strong suit is anything he wants it to be,” Wong told me. “Munchkin can do whatever he wants and be successful at it.”

5 Tips on How to Win at the Casino
By Nicholas Colon

The fundamental axiom of advantage gaming is that it is possible to gain an advantage while playing any game that a casino offers, given if the right set of circumstances. Many of these opportunities are dealer dependent. The world of advantage play is a dynamic one. Often times games will present themselves and the AP will play them for awhile and then they will vanish.

Usually when the casino determines the dealer weakness, changes the rules of the game or eliminates the game altogether. Think of the AP as a virus that attacks the host, in this case the particular game, and destroys it and then moves on. The AP must be keen in their observations and this exploration is intended to give the player some insight into what to look for when evaluating the games beat ability. The 5 top things to look out for are as follows:

Craps Lay Bets: The Dark Sider Strategy
By John Grochowski

When craps players bet against the shooter in a casino table, the most common strategy is to play don’t pass and don’t come.

Backing those bets by laying the free odds cuts the house edge to the bone for “Dark Side” or “wrong bettor” – as the majority who bet with the shooter refer to don’t players.

But what if you’re a dark sider craps player who wants to choose the numbers you’re betting against? What if you don’t want to wait for the shooter to establish a point on the comeout roll, as you do on don’t pass and don’t come as well as on pass and come?

3 Baccarat Strategies that You Don't Want to Try
By Eliot Jacobson Ph.D

For a table game to be successful in a casino, the player must feel as though he has some control. Unlike pushing a button on a slot, every successful table game involves a choice or consequential action. In roulette, the player chooses his numbers and the amount he will wager on each. In craps, the player gets to throw the dice. In blackjack, the player makes strategic decisions. And in the game of baccarat, the player gets to choose between Player, Banker and Tie.

The Double Double Bonus Ace Chase Strategy
By John Grochowski

There comes a time when every Double Double Bonus Poker player faces a decision: To chase the Aces, or not to chase the Aces?

The major attraction of the game, regardless of whether you’re playing online or offline, is the huge 2,000-coin jackpot when you wager five coins and draw four Aces with a 2, 3 or 4 as the fifth card. If you have a 5 or higher as the fifth card, then your return for four Aces is 800 coins when you bet five – the most frequent maximum bet on video poker games.

That combination pays 400-for-1, so for the standard five-coin maximum bet the return is 2,000 coins, or fully half as much as you’ll get on those all too rare royal flushes.

Meet Cheung Yin Sun - Phil Ivey's Edge Sorting Partner
By Michael Kaplan

Poker icon Phil Ivey ranks among the world’s most famous gamblers. He is known for winning millions of dollars at Texas hold’em, Omaha, 7 card stud, and any other poker variation you can think of. So when he appeared on the US TV newsmagazine show 60 Minutes and talked about “exploiting weaknesses of the house and giving myself the best advantage to win” at min-baccarat, it was easy to believe. Ivey, after all, is unaccustomed to losing.

And he didn’t. In less than a year, Phil Ivey won in excess of $20-million playing mini-baccarat. That’s fairly well known. Less known is that he did not win the money alone. Ivey had a lot of help in landing his windfall. It came about via a Chinese collaborator by the name of Cheung Yin “Kelly” Sun.
