Book Puts Fresh Focus on Game of Baccarat

17 October 2000

Even if you're a regular casino player, baccarat is an easy game to ignore. Its presence is the most low profile of all casino games. The version for the masses, mini-baccarat, is generally restricted to a single table or two. The glamour version, grand baccarat, has an elite reputation and isn't readily available.

Is baccarat a game for millionaire jet-setters or does it have a place in the scheme of things for average players? Is it worth playing, and if so, is it even fun to play? Is baccarat just a "guessing game" or is there some rhyme and reason to decision making among making a bet on the player, the bank, or a tie?

Frank Scoblete, America's premier gaming author, has written a book that once and for all answers your baccarat questions and gives the game an identity to which we can all relate. In his own inimitable style, Scoblete infuses new life into baccarat's stuffy image and makes it such an attractive betting proposition that average players probably cannot afford to ignore the game anymore.

The Baccarat Battle Book: How To Attack Baccarat and Mini-Baccarat goes beyond explaining the rules of how to play baccarat. Scoblete tells us WHY you should consider playing the game (it happens to have one of the lowest house edges of all casino games) and how to manipulate the nature of the game and use it to your best advantage.

Scoblete includes a thorough analysis of baccarat play and does a revealing study on the big difference between grand baccarat and the player friendly mini-baccarat. There are interviews with respected gaming experts Henry Tamburin and John May, plus views of people who love to play the game and why.

As usual, Scoblete offers insight and advice that can be carried beyond the baccarat tables and used most beneficially in all of your casino ventures, including an entertaining chapter on "The Seven Deadly Sins of Gambling" as well as an enlightening section about casino "comps" and under what conditions and circumstances they're really worth pursuing.

Ever wonder about baccarat but were afraid to play? Fear no more! Frank Scoblete's Baccarat Battle Book: How To Attack Baccarat and Mini-Baccarat is published by Bonus Books, Inc. of Chicago.
