A new Manual, designed specifically for professional gamblers, has just been published by GFS International Corp., Las Vegas, NV.


The Manual, titled “Vegas Pro’s 3 Best-Ever Horseracing Angles”, was researched and written by the Las Vegas professional racehorse gambler who has authored 2 previous Manuals in GFS’s best-selling series “Making Money Enjoyably”.


Unlike previous Manuals that were aimed at a general sports audience, this Manual is geared strictly to the professional player who earns most or all of his income from legal gambling.


“This book is something of a departure for us,” said Wendell Holmes, marketing vice-president. “Most of our Manuals are targeted to somewhat general audiences. But the author in this Ligaz11 case convinced us that while the target group was relatively small it was an enthusiastic user of good, usable materials. So we followed his advice.”


“Vegas Pro’s Best-Ever Angles”, edition 2001A, will be available effective December 19th from the GFS secure online order site at All major credit cards are accepted. Sales page info is available in 6 languages Toll-free phone orders can go to 1-800-903-4152 (Program #139132). Purchasers receive instant delivery of the Manual via e-mail.

Price of the Manual, effective Jan. 31/01, is $55. Until then a special introductory price of $39 is offered. “We’ll use data gained in this introductory period to hone our marketing approach. Hence the special price,” said Holmes.

Ligaz11 Tournament Directors Association to standardize Tournament Rules

Last week, just before the inaugural World Poker Player’s Conference and World Poker Industry Conferences began, tournament directors from all over the country got together to discuss ways to simplify, organize, and standardize the rules of poker for tournaments. Bellagio’s Doug Dalton provided a meeting room and snacks and Card Player Cruises organized this historic event.


Since the Cardrooms couldn’t agree to anything, they tried taking the rules problem to the tournament directors and found out that nothing comes easily. Starting with a list of 20 items, directors from everywhere turned out to try and be the dissenting vote, or at least that was the way it seemed.


Cardrooms represented, but not limited to, included Bay 101, Lucky Chances, The Oaks, Foxwoods, Commerce, Hollywood Park, Orleans, Spirit Mountain, Card Player Cruises, Lake Elsinore, Reno Hilton, as well as Bob Thompson and Jack McClelland.


Each item, some as simple as dead or forward moving button, were discussed at length. Finally, from the list of 20, 14 were agreed to by this select panel of experts. An agreement was drawn up and the casinos who sign it have promised to use these standardized rules commencing August 1st.


They will all meet and discuss how things worked for them at next year’s WPIC (World Poker Industry Conference). Although there are only 14, it is a start and many concessions were made by some of the directors.


For more information, contact Dave Lamb at the Reno Hilton Poker Room. He will be getting forms out to you if you wish to sign up your room.
