What's My Line?

14 May 2003

How many remember the classic old game show “What’s My Line?” that had a 17-year run on CBS-TV from 1950 through 1967? John Daly moderated a panel that included Dorothy Kilgallen, Arlene Francis, and Bennett Cerf. The panel’s job was to guess the profession of a guest by asking a series of questions that required a “yes” or “no” answer.

Today I’d like to play a modified version of the game by giving you the professional and academic qualifications of a series of individuals and then asking: “In pursuit of what avocation do you think they have formed an alliance?”

“Dominator”: Graduated from college with degrees in biology and mathematics.

“Doc Holliday”: A practicing doctor of dentistry.

Dr. Richard McCall: A practicing psychologist and former director of The Human Performance Institute. Raised in Japan, he is now headmaster of the Bushinkai Zendo and holds a fifth degree belt in Samurai “Aiki-Bujutsu”. He is also an accomplished futures trader and the author of two best-selling books on the topic.

“Sharpshooter”: An engineer by trade.

Frank Scoblete: An expert in his field, he can be heard on radio every week and has served as a consultant for CNN, ABC, The Discovery Channel, TBS, The Travel Channel, and Walter Cronkite.

“Tenor”: A retired high school music teacher who has a magnificent singing voice.

These gentleman of distinguished and diverse professional backgrounds have come together with gambling professionals Bill Burton, “Billy the Kid”, “Mr. Finesse”, and “Sharpshooter” as members of the faculty of “Golden Touch Craps”, which is rapidly earning a reputation as the “gold standard” in dice control seminars.

Dice control is the method by which believers and practitioners physically control the setting, holding, and throwing of dice at casino craps tables nationwide with the intention of altering mathematical probability in favor of players.

They are traveling around the country conducting seminars and hands-on small group workshops to teach the skills they have learned. Just recently they lectured before packed houses at the Sunset Station in Las Vegas, Nevada and gave a series of seminars planned for hotel casinos in Mississippi.

If you’d like to check out when they may be coming to the Chicago-area, call toll free 1-866-SET-DICE or log on to www.goldentouchcraps.com.

Is there such a science as “dice control” in a game that has long been considered “pure chance?” The Golden Touch Craps “professors” say “Yes!”

Dr. McCall, for example, has documented cumulative winnings of over $1 million at casino craps tables around the world.

Mr. Finesse, one of the smoothest and most accomplished dice control experts, plays at least twice a week at Foxwoods in Connecticut and is a frequent visitor to Las Vegas. He practices his Golden Touch throw at home for 45 minutes every day.

“There’s no reason why high rollers or other craps players have to be losers,” said Frank Scoblete, the nation’s number one gambling author and Golden Touch teacher. “It’s much more fun and profitable to make a bet you are the long-run favorite to win because of your skill.”

Dice control skills that are taught include eight physical elements of controlled shooting such as table position, stance and scanning, set, angle, grab, grip, delivery, spin control, and bounce control. Other topics they cover include mental discipline, focus, stamina, and betting strategies based on applying sound mathematical principles rather than superstitions.

I have already admitted to being a long time skeptic of dice control. But Golden Touch Craps has at least convinced me to view it with an open mind.
