  5.  Another book that takes a look at casino games and their corresponding mechanics is The House Edge Solution by Steve Dent. The premise of the book is that while playing casino games, we human psychology allows us to perceive the game results as having"holes" in them - what Dent refers to as the"house advantage." Our analytical minds figure that if we could find an advantage - a better home edge - on any given spin of the wheel, then we're going to walk away with far more money than we came in with. This is not really such a new concept, though it's only recently caught on in the mainstream (and legitimate casino scene. And Steve Dent provides the explanation why this idea works...
  6.  After discussing the arbitrary number games in previous books, this one goes to the more popular casino games of blackjack, poker, slots, baccarat, and other table games. It touches on the various approaches people take to playing these games, including some very good examples of bluffing that are presented in detail. Also, learning how to read casino jargon and other strategies that casino sport players employ is covered.
  7.  In a book that talks about casino games and the house advantage, Steve Dent makes a strong case that using less house advantage, normally, when playing a game of poker will cause more money won for the casino. Together with the standard deviation for the standard error of chance, he calculates that the deviation from the expected value of casino money is really much worse than simply having no house edge at all. https://mt-hell.com/ So while he admits that some gamblers play with a small house advantage, he believes it's far better to have a far larger one. The issue is that most gamblers are not even aware of it. I would say that this book comprises the most complete analysis of standard deviation, but one could say that it is very useful for those that are already familiar with casino games.
