Michael Vernon is The Professor and gaming instructor extraordinaire.

Why is that? Michael discovered how extrasensory perception contributes to a successful gaming experience. His nickname, The Professor, was given to him by a P4K student, an accountant, who was especially impressed with the math behind the Playing 4 Keeps™ strategies. It is Michael’s eclectic approach, using mathematically low risk bets and what he calls, “applied metaphysics” that drives the engines of Playing 4 Keeps™.

Michael Vernon has studied and played casino games since 1990. Michael has been teaching Playing 4 Keeps™ seminars for Blackjack and Craps since 1996. His passion for playing Blackjack and Craps is exceeded only by his enthusiasm to share gaming knowledge and empower others with his winning methods.

Michael has 30 years of metaphysical training. For sixteen years his company, White Dove Int. published the works of Stuart Wilde as well as produced Stuart Wilde seminars.

Michael Vernon has been an entrepreneur his whole life, owning six corporation. He has written and published three gaming books. He publishes his own gaming blog, newsletter, and writes articles for other gaming publications.

In addition to gaming strategies, Michael teaches what he calls, “applied metaphysics”. “See what others cannot and know what others do not”. Michael and his wife live in Pueblo West, Colorado.

What Players Say About Michael Vernon…

After finding “The Professor” on the web, we began by exchanging emails and subsequently phone calls. I liked what I was hearing enough to “GAMBLE” the cost of a few hours tuition as well as my travel costs. When I arrived at Michael’s home, I already had a very good understanding of craps itself and dice setting in general. I had studied dozens of books and already built a nice practice rig at home. Additionally I understood the various bets on the table, had developed my own preferred methods of betting, setting and tossing. Now, I may have been well studied – but I fully admit I was definitely not too widely experienced in the real casino environment. My hope was that my time with Michael would confirm I was on the right track and ready for some successful live action.

Perhaps you have had the following experience, as I have had many times. You are sitting in some day long seminar – saying to yourself, “I know all this stuff – what am I doing here?” Then suddenly…BAM! The presenter drops what I call a “pearl” that hits home and sinks in. These little pearls of wisdom are why we should never forget, “You can learn SOMETHING from everyone.”

Michael gave me perhaps 3-4 pearls during our time together. He showed me how to “anchor” my tossing hand so I could build better consistency in my tosses. This has been of enormous value to date. He tweaked my preferred method of betting adding in to the mix the best way to handle pass line wins. I have already hit 4 great wins with this adjustment to my play. Michael exposed me to the metaphysical side of the game that I was not even paying attention to. In the most basic terms, he taught me to be AWARE of what is happening and what is ABOUT to happen. And lastly – he gave me INTENT. I quote his own words here from an email I received from him, “Results come from consistency, belief, confidence and intention.” Thanks to Michael I now have the INTENT to influence the dice every time I toss. And that intention and confidence is paying dividends.

Over my last six sessions of live casino play – I have won $3200 – (over $2200 in one amazing session alone, while I was tossing the dice) – and that is using $10 starting pass line bets – just wagering properly and intelligently. Is that just dumb luck? Or perhaps was it my INTENTION to win? Warmest regards, Kevin H.


“First, allow me to salute you sir for your effort in providing a hard hitting no nonsense depictions regarding various plays. Regarding the subject of craps I’ve acquired various books from some twenty plus authors and I will say to you that your Do’s and Don’ts playbook would be ranked at the top of the books heralded for the serious player. I sure would be honored to shake your hand one day. Thank you Michal, thank you so very, very much.” Respectfully yours, John B.


Michael, what a great trip I had yesterday. I went up and played for only a few hours and took almost 2x my session units home at one casino and a fair amount at another. I did what you recommended and walked the casinos, then picked one and played for 1 hour, walked some more and played another 1.5 hours at another casino, almost the entire extra .5 hrs being my roll (busy table and over 14 rolls — I lost count).

My rolls are getting better, naturals come more often on come out and box numbers seem to stick with inside numbers with the dice setting you showed me (6 on the side, not the paper chart). I’ve changed up the basic betting strategy you showed me and stick to playing in units. I made my win potential just a bit smaller but at the same time gave myself more time to play. I might do this until I can increase my bankroll to a comfortable amount. So like you said, find a strategy that I’m comfortable with, play within my bankroll and enjoy the wins. Stack’em and Rack’em is perfect!

Thank you for helping me improve my game, I think I’ve got a good future in playing craps for fun. Now just to build out my table and get more practice in.” Jason M. Colorado


Mr. Vernon, Just a note to say thanks for the “Chronicles”. I read them with great interest there were some good things that apply to my game. I’m definitely a under funded player, I play craps at the Horseshoe in Cleveland and their table minimum is $15, which is way too steep. But using the P4K I can at least enjoy a chance to play and if I can find the “hot shooter” I’ve racked up some nice wins. Following the energy, when the table is cold, I go home early.

I really am interested in applying the metaphysical approach. I’m reading some books by your friend Stuart Wilde, what a great mind. I will be trying to apply the concepts. When I make the big hit I would like to try one of your dice seminars. Thanks again, Bill
