The Worlds Best Gamblers……….

20 12 2011

Today I want to recognize the most popular and biggest players in the gambling world. I personally am not expert because the only time I gamble is when I go bingo  games online with my grandma.  These guys have proven to be the best at their specific game and some of them the best at gambling on a whole. They are the professional card counters and casino’s probably hate them pretty much. Some of them you might have heard of and some are maybe not so popular but still the top contenders for the best gambler title.

The MIT Blackjack Team
This team was put together during the 90′s at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The team based approach to gambling really gave the MIT team an upper hand in almost every casino. A test was run at the college to find only the best and most suitable car counters and these are the guys that now make up the formidable team. They first tested their tactics in a made up casino environment before going into the real world casinos. The team is split up now but only after they summed up about $5 Million in winnings.Edward ThorpThorp has got to be the Don of casinos. He was called the father of car counting back in the 60′s. Originally not very interested in gambling, Las Vegas changed all of that and made him think about ways to game the system or the way he would put it is “gain an advantage”. His masters degree in physics and doctorate degree in mathematics of course played a huge role in his winning hand when playing blackjack. He studied the game more in-depth than anybody else has ever considered doing and that eventually paid off pretty well for him. Thorp published two books about how to “beat the dealer” and made tons of money from just those two. His hard work and blackjack research led him to be inducted into the BlackJack Hall of Fame.

Richard Marcus
Richard was one of the best cheaters in the world of gambling. He had a method of cheating called “The Savannah” which involved hiding a $500 chip underneath a few smaller chips out of the dealers eyesight. If it was a bust then Richard would swiftly remove the $500 chip and only loss a small amount. If he won the dealer would be shocked to see why he celebrates winning such a small amount but then Richard would reveal the $500 chip and the dealer would be stunned. He used this technique to avoid drawing too much attention to the bet his making.

These are just three guys, well 2 guys and one team of guys that are probably hated by every casino in the world. These guys have laid the path for more gamblers to go and research true ways to be a professional gambler. These guys should try out 75 ball bingo and see if they can succeed there as well. That will be truly amazing. Nevertheless these guys have proven that they are to smart for any casino in the world. The only way to get around them is to have a fake deck of cards in your casino on every single table.
