"12 Ways To Beat Your Bookie"
'Proven Money-Management Programs For the Professional Sports Bettor'
“Money Management for the Year Round Professional Sports Handicapper”
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Tony Stoffo, the former manager of the race and sports book at the old Desert Inn Casino in Las Vegas, has made his living in the sports gambling industry for 30 years. Starting as a teenager, he ran bets for a local bookmaker on Wall Street for 10 years before moving to Florida to work full-time in the thoroughbred horseracing industry. In 1989, he started as a sports book writer in Las Vegas casinos, working his way up to manager at the Desert Inn, one of the city’s top 10 sports books. Tony still lives in Las Vegas, where over the last several years he has earned the reputation as one of the best sports handicappers in the country, making his exclusive picks available to gamblers via the Internet.
Nelson Williams, who splits his time between New York City and Los Angeles, is a writer and editor who has covered sports and other topics for newspapers and magazines for 20 years. He can be reached at email@example.com.
If it wasn’t for Sonny Reizner, my former boss at the Rio and Desert Inn sports books in Las Vegas, you wouldn’t be reading this book today. Sonny, who ran the Hole in the Wall Sports book at the old Castaways Casino from 1976 to 1988 and developed the city's first NFL handicapping contest, took me under his wing at the Rio, teaching me the ins and outs of the gambling business. The sharpest bettor I have ever met, Sonny showed me many of the strategies that I incorporate in my 12 Money- Management Programs, and his influence continues to color every pick I make as a professional handicapper. -- Tony Stoffo, 2012
I would also like to thank Howard Schwartz from the Gambler’s Book Shop here in Las Vegas. Howard took time out of his busy schedule to share some of his own ideas how to make my book even better and gave me the encouragement to go forward with this project. -- Tony Stoffo, 2010

All the information in this book is meant for professional gamblers betting in states and/or venues where it is legal to do so. The authors and publishers do not condone illegal gambling, strongly urge readers to determine the legality of gambling in their locale or via the Internet before betting, and accept no liability for those who break local, state, federal or international laws by gambling illegally. As is stressed throughout this book, all gamblers are encouraged to bet legally, smartly and conservatively, with only a small portion of their disposable income, risking only what they can afford to lose. Those who feel that they may have a gambling problem are urged to cease betting immediately and contact their state’s chapter of Gambler’s Anonymous as the first step in seeking help.
I'm really excited about this opportunity to begin introducing a few of you to the lucrative world of "Sports Investing" and hope to show the rest, at the least how to avoid a few pitfalls of sports gambling.
