Celebrities to Compete at World Craps Championships - Friday 3rd of February 2006

Frank Scoblete's World Craps Championships(TM) will have many celebrities competing in the 10 craps tournaments scheduled for July 22 and 23 at the Atrium Hotel in Las Vegas. Some will also be competing in head-to-head competition against Golden Touch's expert dice controllers as well.

Jean Scott, best selling author of the Frugal Gambler and More Frugal Gambling, and one of the world's greatest advantage players will be competing, along with her husband Brad Scott. "I am not a controlled shooter," states Jean, "but in tournaments there is a lot of luck involved. I hope to get lucky in this one. I can't wait to compete."

John Grochowski, best selling author of the Casino Answer Book series, will take time out from his duties as a columnist for the Detroit Free Press and from his radio show to compete. John is a Golden Touch Craps dice control student and now will get the opportunity to strut his stuff.

Dr. Don Catlin, professor emeritus of mathematics at the University of Massachusetts and author of The Lottery Book: The Truth Behind the Numbers, is set to compete. Dr. Catlin did an exhaustive study of the Captain's 5-Count, a method for reducing one's exposure to the house edge on random rollers that is used by Golden Touch shooters when they play in casinos. He is also a Golden Touch Dice Control student who is looking to show that even mathematicians can challenge chance.

Henry Tamburin, best-selling author and the Golden Touch student record holder in the No-Sevens Contest with 45 rolls before a seven showed, will be in head-to-head and tournament competition during the weekend. "I am really looking forward to meeting all these great craps players. They are an exciting bunch of players and this is going to be the greatest craps weekend ever. I would love to win the No-Sevens tournament."

Well known actor Barry Sigismondi, who played Dominator in the History Channel show The Dice Dominator will show off his dice control talents and be a guest speaker at the Awards dinner on Sunday evening, July 23. Since studying the Golden Touch, Barry has become quite a skilled shooter. He might even be challenging the real Dominator in a head-to-head special event match to determine who the true Dominator of craps actually is.

"I will show this guy who the true Dominator is," states the real Dominator.

1. THE COME-OUT CHAMPIONSHIP: The Come-Out roll is won when a 7 or 11 is rolled. Some shooters shoot for those numbers on the Come-out. Can you be the best at it?

2. THE HARD WAY CHAMPIONSHIP: How good are you at rolling the hard way numbers of 4, 6, 8, 10? Can you do 2:2, 3:3, 4:4, and 5:5 enough times to be the champion? This contest will find out!

3. ULTIMATE CRAPSHOOTER CHAMPIONSHIP: They are the numbers with the highest house edges and some of the biggest payoffs in the game of craps. Can you roll the 2, 3, or 12 enough times to make you the champ?

4. THE 6 & 8 CHAMPIONSHIP: The easiest numbers to hit are the 6 and the 8. Many shooters use the 3-V set to bang out those numbers. Can you make the most 6s and 8s?

5. THE 4 & 10 CHAMPIONSHIP: If you use the 2-V set you are looking to hit those outside numbers. Can you be the royalty of the outside world?

6. NO SEVENS CHAMPIONSHIP: If you are a right player, the 7 is the number you want to avoid. Can you avoid it enough to become the best no-sevens champion?

7. MAKE YOUR POINT CHAMPIONSHIP: You establish a point and hit that point. It's the real game of craps. Can you do it more than your opponents?

8. ON THE HOP CHAMPIONSHIP: The number will be called a certain way - but can you hit it?
