This is a no-frills guide which may well turn losers into winners. The key to R. J. Smart's system is akin to the stand-up comedian's belief that "the good gags blot out the bad ones". R. J. Smart instructs players to place a variety of wagers, emphasizing the playing of "corners". Readers will lose some bets but should show profit on nearly 90 percent of the spins. His credo, similar to that of other professional gamblers, involves discipline and money management, and never betting individual numbers, 36-1 notwithstanding.
