The Early Years

Jacobson always wanted to be a Chef and his dream was to move to Barcelona and work for a 3 Michelin Star restaurant and ultimately own his own restaurant one day.

He graduated from Culinary school and then did 12 months in the Royal Swedish navy which was mandatory in Sweden at the time.

His first introduction to Poker was when he was 18 years old and the world was going through the poker boom. He initially started playing freeroll tournaments online and poker games at home with friends.

Playing Poker

He enjoyed poker immensely and before long, he was playing small stakes cash games that soon led to single table tournaments.

At this stage his plan to move to Barcelona did not materialize when his job offer fell through. This is when he started playing poker more seriously.

WSOP and EPT Tournaments

In 2008 Jacobson won his first qualifier for the Word Series of Poker main event held in Las Vegas.
he had a choice to make though, because the prize was either $12 000 or the chance to play at the WSOP.

He chose to play at the WSOP and flew to Vegas. He was, however, eliminated in the third hand. A few weeks later he qualified for an event in the European Poker Tour (EPT) in Bucharest. He came third in this event and won €280 000.

He got his first live tournament win in October 2013 at the EPT in London.

In 2014 Martin made it to the final table of the WSOP main event, and landed up winning
$10 000 000.

Where is he now?

Martin is now living in London where he continues to play poker online, but he still has a passion for food and is planning on opening a healthy fast-food franchise.

Dominic LoRiggio

Dominic LoRiggio Dominic LoRiggio is a Professional Craps player and ranks as the 7th best gambler in the world. He is known as ‘The Dominator’ or ‘The Man with the Golden Arm’.

He uses a method called “Dice Control “which means that if you release the Dice in a certain way, you can turn the odds in your favour. The advantage gained is similar to card-counting in the game of Blackjack.

The Early Years

Little is known about LoRiggio’s early years, except that he was born in the USA in the 1950s where he did his studies. He was an Office Clerk for several years until he found an interest in the game of Craps. Whilst studying, he taught himself how to play Craps.

Techniques of Dice Roll

LoRiggio strongly believed that by using various dice throwing techniques, he could drop out various combinations. He changed hand movements, throwing movements and other parameters to get the desired result he wanted, to change the odds in his favour. Moreover, he used controlled shooting which he also taught to his friend Frank Skoblete.

Playing Craps in Vegas

LoRiggio and Skoblete played craps at the various casino in Las Vegas, until casino management banned them from their establishments.
However, they did manage to amass some large sums of money together before the ban.

Where is Dominic LoRiggio Now?

Nowadays LoRiggio has a website called goldentouchcraps.com where he promotes a ‘Golden Touch Craps Training DVD.’ He also does writing for gaming magazines, various training seminars and private lessons for people wanting to learn Dice-Control.
The Dominator’s life story was told on The History Channel show “The Dice Dominator” which formed part of the Breaking Vegas series.

In recent years LoRiggio was on The National Geographic channel where he demonstrated his dice control rolling techniques.
