    Why isn't he posting here anymore. Any updates on him? Is he doing fine?

    You're not the only one who would like to know. Since it is publicly available, I'll say he hasn't logged into WoV in over two years. That's definitely a shame, as much as I think dice control and GTC (which I don't even think he's doing anymore) are completely full of shit, Scoblete is an extremely well-spoken and very nice guy with whom I enjoyed what limited discourse I had. I also enjoy reading virtually anything he posts, too.

    His most recent FB post was over half a year ago. However, it looks as though he published a bird watching piece on his site just a couple of days ago:

    http://frankscoblete.com/look-a-big-bird-with-a-bright-orange-breast/

    It seems that Scobe may simply have lost interest in gambling, or at least, in engaging on the Forums. There is a Contact link on his page if you want to drop him a message. If you do, toss in there that Mission146 from WoV says hi if you wouldn't mind too much. I'd send him a message myself, but, 'Hi, I hope you're well,' is really all I would have to say to him.

    He's winning millions from the casinos from dice controlling, of course.

    Really?

    I believe Frank has quietly retired from the world of gambling.

    I thought that his book on beating Roulette was crap. But that's no big achievement. Most people think that I'm full of crap too.

    While Frank has not completely retired from gambling (he and I do get together to shoot the dice on a casino craps table on occasion) there are other things in his life that seem to have priority these days.
    He is happy and doing very well.

    Why don't we just say that he mined DI for as much as he could? All gambling for that matter.

    I debated whether to post or not for fear that my post would elicit your very tone.
    To the statement in your post I respond, "no."

    Frank helped many, many gamblers to improve their lot in a casino. As a former teacher in New York school, he is truly dedicated to teaching the proper way to get an edge (or at least reduce the house edge) in casino play. You can believe what you want about card counting, dice control, or advantage psi how play, but by simply following Frank's teaching nags on how to bet these games, the vast majority of his students will see positive results.
    Frank truly was in the business to help people become better casino gamblers.

    Frank was in this business to make money. His TV show impacted the craps game, and not for the good. There was no excuse for waving a red flag under the casinos nose for a few more students. If I was God (and thank Him I'm not) I would have replied; "No, you are a dead man"

    He's a hack.

    Sure, he can write, but most of what he has to say has already been said by others.

    His "Captain of Craps" bullshit frosts my cookies.

    He surfed a trendy wave (DI) into the mass market as long as he could, making money off of the desperate and the deluded.

    Sounds like there is a tad of " bitterness " in your tone of voice -

    Perhaps because YOU were caught up in the " bullshit " as one of the desperate and deluded ?

    $...eE..$

    Sounds like you are a satisfied sycophant. Let's hear your testimony on how Frank's books put you on to the right track. Something there must have piqued your need to defend the guy. I'm curious enough now. What's going on here?

    Frank S is a good writer and promoter, he is even a nice guy.

    It's easy to pretend to believe something when it is making you lots money.

    If Frank really believed DI was legit there is no way in hell he would retire.
    Professional gamblers don't ever retire as long as they can enter a casino and there is an advantage to be had. Sure, they might slow down and play less and enjoy the money.

    If Craps DI was a real thing they would have access to 365 24/7 around the world(very little heat nowadays, I see guys attempting DI all day long all the time). How the fuck are you going to retire from that? All the DI money comes from selling shit, getting free rolls and holding classes for the suckers. What's it been now since DI became popular, 12 years?
    Yet not one credible source has shown its even possible, let alone actually profitable.

    And don't tell me there are not a bunch of qualified guys who would LOVE to show proof it's possible and show off all their riches.

    DI=ONE OF THE BEST GAMBLING SCAMS EVER DEVISED. It has fooled even the best of them.

    It takes work. We are not getting any younger. Even Wong dropped out. But thankfully the greatest cover in the world, the WoV site, and it's lackeys, are in place to protect the few.

    You see, when you say Scoblete is a nice guy, you show me you haven't seen the other side. Good writer and promoter. If he promoted any more we would be tossing out of cups. If he had half the talent he said he had, he would have destroyed craps.

    I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are getting at. Please feel free to enlighten me, no need to hold back.

    Ya, when someone like Wong drops out you know damn well something isn't adding up. We are talking about someone who has ties and access to some of the brightest most talented AP's in the world. Someone who has the bankroll and resources to do whatever it takes to make money given an advantage on craps.

    Actually it is, and should be, a lone wolf operation. For a lot of reasons the dedication escapes most, and the rest believe what the press tells them!
    Kinda like politics!
