Levy's Hit And Run -
A Funny, Fresh Way of Winning At Virtually Everything

By Howard Schwartz

Some writers love the game of blackjack, craps or some other casino game so much, they get so darned serious about it, you wonder if they underwent some sort of personality change with all the intensity they put into a book. Simply, it's win or die-no messing around. Now comes Arnold Levy-not exactly a household name in the gaming industry, but one whose philosophy about playing should be admired-perhaps copied by players who are a bit too much "into themselves" as human beings.

Levy's book is titled Hit and Run (How to Beat Blackjack as a Way of Life) (166 pages, paperbound, $14.95), and it's a welcome new arrival at Gambler's Book Shop.

Levy's been gambling for 40 years. He's made mistakes at the tables and he tells you how to avoid them. His advice is down to earth and logical. "Arrogance and smug self-assurance are the quicksand that'll gobble up a gambler's bankroll," he warns. He approaches gambling tables as one would a bear trap.

This book is more than just about playing blackjack. It's a clear journey around all the existing bear traps waiting for players, who either can't manage their money or who go off on a "tilt" anytime something goes wrong, or allow a casino to distract them from their goal-to win.

Levy explains why he refuses credit and how this move became his salvation-as it should be to others. Many have wondered what the impact of no clocks and no windows in the casino add up to. Plus-why payout booths are so far from logical access. (It's to tempt you to play more.) "Wear blinkers if you have to (but once you cash out a winner)�haul your ass out the door�" Levy advises.

The book is packed with short stories, incidents, and examples of people getting lucky, coincidences, oddball happenings and never ceases to be interesting. Levy talks about bosomy women, cheating, illegal casinos, phony casino promotions, the false promises pitched to lotto players, premonitions, video poker, keno and roulette. It's his skill at capturing the true color and language of the gambler, in all his glory and often in the disaster mode, which makes

this book click well. His language isn't fancy-it's right on target-you can almost feel the excitement and hear the result of his adventures at whatever game he plays or comments on.

This could be the best $14.95 you ever plunked down for a book about what to do, what to avoid and how it all works, for the player or the House.
