Default An eye opener from a shift manager's office

An eye opener's observed during a visit to a shift manager's office

Years ago a dispute got me into the office. Perhaps I may be the only AhPee allowed & invited into the office so far in that casino. Naturally I was not allowed into its surveillance room to see the tape, but the "evidence" was redirected onto the manager's monitor. I was very impressed by its Hi-Techs which "can" manipulate any way a casino wants to... in support of its assertion.

Now I understand what the "selective video-taping" means when David has implied that casinos can make a strong case against APs by their "selective video tapings". For example, if their "selective video tapes" have showed that you got 100% correct in the insurance bets, then you're a card-cheater/card-marker.


"CCC keeps card cheater on blacklist

Card counting is allowed at the Atlantic City casinos. Card cheating, of course, is not. David H. Morse claims he's a card counter, but others have labeled him a cheater."


The above quote's taken from Al Rogers' BJ21.com Newsletter dated June 16, 2006

Morse got blacklisted for cheating.
He was manipulating the cut-card placement to locate Aces.
Other APs like Sam Case almost took criminal charges for same. zg

manipulating the cut card is cheating?!
shuffle tracking and cutting to the good cards, is that cheating?
no way... for real?

Inserting then twisting the cut card in order to peek at the cards, then re-cutting the deck in order to steer the cards is considered illegal by the courts.

We often have the argument over exactly what is cheating. The loosest definition usually equated cheating with illegal activity. That would seem to indicate that it is cheating. Thanks Sonny.

Thanks for the clarification. I'll stay on the legal method.
