    I'm not a huge fan of Keith's, but he seems to get my wife in a favorable mood, so he is OK in my book. For some reason my wife doesn't feel the same way about me going to a strip club. Must be a Mars-Venus thing.

    ES: Three Questions

    > Do you like the casino environment?

    I would like it if they made the casinos smoke-free, or, at least made half or more of the floor space smoke free.

    > Do you like and/or respect the gaming industry?

    Neither! They are greedy bastards.

    > Have you heard of and if so, what do you know about,
    > the following people: Nick Dandalos, Julian Bruan,
    > Johnny Moss, Kenny Uston, Steve Fezzik, Jeffery Ma,
    > Michael Roxborough, Thomas Austin Preston, William
    > Nelson Darnborough, Erich Weiss?

    Only four of them.

    Nick Dandalos was Nick the Greek, a high roller who allegedly said the best thing in life is to gamble and win, the second best is to gamble and lose.

    Julian Braun was a computer programmer for IBM and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, whose pioneering work helped develop the Thorp, Revere and High-Opt systems. He died of Parkionson's Disease in 2000. He is one of our unsung heroes.

    Ken Uston's lifestyle and lawsuits made him a controversial figure. I supported his lawsuits. He temporarily restored early surrender in Atlantic City and ended arbitrary and capricious barring of suspected card counters in AC. He did NOT destroy the hitherto beatable game. DOA, DAS, S17 ESR, 4 or 6 Decks and NRS (the only bad rule). The Casino Control Commission most likely did not know that these rules gave the BS player a slight edge and removed ESR w/o any compensating favorable rule at the behest of the casinos in 1981, before Uston won his case. The circumstances of Uston's death at age 52 remain mysterious.

    Erich Weiss was the stage name of magician Harry Houdini. I do not know whether he did card tricks or was involved with gambling. Much of his act was centered on escapes, rather than illusions. He most likely performed them through physical strength and flexibility. He exposed phony "spiritualists" and "mediums" that claimed to be able to communicate with the dead. Houdini also died young.

    No, it was his birth name.

    True, but he did write a book on how to spot card trick scams and other gambling scams (see my post above or type "Harry Houdini" into Amazon.com).
