SKIENA Description This book follows the story of how Steven Skiena predicted the results of jai-alai matches by using computer simulations and mathematical modeling techniques.
Skiena shows readers how to watch jai-alai properly and how to bet on it for successful profits. He presents a gambling system that works. The computer program, as presented by Steven Skiena in the book, proves to be successful in predicting the outcome of jai-alai.
He shows how the computer program he created effectively exploited statistical advantages through the Spectacular Seven scoring system for jai-alai. It also narrates how Skiena got into creating this computer program through his personal interest in the game. Overall, the book is fun to read and discusses the development of the program and how the author beat jai-alai successfully.
