Yah it's an industry oriented book, but it's only $70 hardcover. It has a lot of great information, especially on statistics and probability as relating to gambling. They didn't mention your strategy but it seems to me to contradict the whole idea. With a 10% rebate you WANT volatility in order to increase win and increase the reabate when you do lose. Also you're giving 5% to the house every other hand instead of playing at a 1% edge.
