Retired Marine Pens CRAPS: THE ULTIMATE WINNING STRATEGIES
by BWW News Desk - Feb 23, 2017

A new book released by Dog Ear Publishing shows the importance of chance in bringing about destiny. When a Christmas gift exchange with coworkers led to Will Thomas Jr. getting a book about how to play craps, he was hooked. He completed his first strategies spreadsheet that next year and has continued to work to create winning strategies for the game of chance. In 'Craps: The Ultimate Winning Strategies,' readers will find everything from ultimate winning strategies to the basics: table layout, the odds and betting, money management and determining risk level. Thomas shares his ups and downs of competing with casinos for 24 years and what he believes is winning strategies, including his first time in 2002 trying those very strategies - and coming out $2,500 ahead, much to the shock of the craps dealers who initially mocked Him but then changed their tune. Detailed charts outlining strategies and straight talk about the odds of winning create a powerful resource for anyone interested in taking a chance on the dice game known as craps. Thomas served 13 months in Vietnam from 1967-68 in the U.S. Marine Corps. He retired after 30 years of service as an engineering documentation specialist in Silicon Valley. He is part owner of Business Partnership LLC and is writing books about his experiences. The author graduated from Monroe High School in Georgia in 1964. He and his 'Sweet Georgia Peach,' Brenda Faye, married in 1969 and moved to San Jose, Calif. They have two sons and four grandchildren.
