    Bob Nersesian was our guest last night on Gambling With an Edge. We discussed, what to do and say when approached by casino security as well as what to do in the back room, ID, recording conversations with police or security, carrying cash, and more. Any serious player should give this a listen.

    Indeed the podcast was very good. HIGHLY recommended.

    Now it is time to plug Munchkin's book: It is a fine fun read.

    Without going into detail, (a bore to a non-backgammon player); I was
    a regular at The Mayfair Club's all-weekend "chouette" in the mid 1970's.

    There are no (meaningful) errors or mistakes; other than a couple
    of chapters that are contaminated with hyperbolic self-aggrandizement.

    LOL! You mean to say there is a backgammon player with an ego?

    And never before have so many pro-gamblers all proclaimed what careful honest taxpayers they are! zg

    Did Counselor Nersesian comment on that spooking area? zg

    We had so many questions that we ran out of time. But we are planning to have him back in 4 or 5 weeks so I'll ask him then.

    Podcast was good, glad I listened.

    Validated that my initial plan for carrying cash, just rubber banded to my players cards in my carry on is probably good start.

    Best was Bob Nersesian's cell number. It's definitely in my cell phone now, but of course only for emergencies!

    I too put Bob N. on speed dial, although I have not been to Las Vegas in over a year.

    The discussion re: carrying cash was very good.

    What works for me is having a "fanny pack" with NOTHING but cash, paper items, and player's cards in it. It never is looked at twice.

    When you're as old as you are, a fanny pack is an EXPECTED part of the uniform :laugh:

    Guys, no need to make a casino surveillance person's job easier identifying Flash.

    Fanny pack?

    Seriously, a fanny pack?

    I thought fanny packs had long since become unfashionable unless you were carrying a concealed weapon, in which case it is now just a signal to the cops that you're carrying.

    Or do you mean a money belt?

    I'd consider a fanny pack if I could get away with it, but it seems as if it would stick out in a crowd.

    Always considered getting a "man bag" because its something actually quite useful for an AP, but never pulled the trigger, would make me look like some kind of metrosexual.

    That would be a 'murse'. The women will be all over you if you get one.

    EXCELLENT pod cast!!!!
    I too have Mr. Nersesians, number now on my phone... Very cool of him to give it out.
    Very interesting about the cash and zip baggies.
    Why i say that is when i was talking to the DEA guy he told me that they noticed that the cash i had wasnt hidden or really concealed, and that 10 of it was neatly folded into 1g stacks and rubber banded 5 a piece. They took notice of how my money was stored and where it was stored!
    Thanks Mr. Munchkin for the interview.....I will definitely be a listener to the show!!!
    And thankyou Mr. Nersesian for your time and effort helping us APs!!!!!

    Just get a backpack. Far more manly than a fanny pack or purse :laugh::laugh:

    I like the belly pack. I always use them hunting. They are great for traveling in casinos. I could give a rat's behind what people say about my fashion. The funny thing is typically they make fun of what I wear but in 3 or 4 years it is all the rage and the same people who made fun of me are wearing my arrangement proudly. I always loose some respect for these people who can't think for themselves.

    What's the takeaway

    about carrying cash via airport and freeway?

    Should it be sealed in one opaque?(transparent) envelope?
    Or just rubber band?
    In bundles of say 10.25.50 notes?

    While flying: hold cash on your head(in an envelope or naked?)

    I don't particularly like flashing my cash in view of potential thieves. And when I say potential thieves, I include county sheriffs and DEA agents who may be in the area. So other methods are necessary.
