    I would have smelled the bullshit from Mars...let alone from miles away. Anyone turning money over to this guy needs their assets confiscated and run by a trustee.

    It's a simple premise. If someone can beat a casino game...they need NO ONE'S money.

    TDV,

    You obviously missed Mr. Smooth's statement that he feels so blessed being able to make unlimited monies that he feels the need to pass his expertise onto the less fortunate of us not smart enough to have figured things out.

    While he says it is true that he charges most people, there are those that apparently impress him enough that he will impart to them for free.

    Quite a guy. It's almost Christian of him.

    yeah, very nice of him......I just heard on the news a priest admitted to gambling away 100s of thousands of dollars. Not sure if they said 180 or 300 thousand, dj was making a joke out of it.

    A real sweetheart. Guys like this have zero conscience. They don't care if the money comes from a sick grandma or sick child. They don't care if it's someone's entire life savings.

    I'd actually like to go to his arraignment next week and punch him in the head. I'm as harmless as a mouse but guys like this really deserve a kick in the head. He'll never stop the scam business. It's just a matter of time of finishing his sentence and starting a new scam.

    Combination of catastrophic stupidity, gullibility and a sprinkle of greed. We have a hard time understanding the complexity of the stupidity because we compare it to how we would react. We don't get it. It doesn't compute. We would never do it.

    I just shake my head at these people.

    Well, we all know that Mark Thomas Georgantas is now IN JAIL.

    BUT, I have to tell you that there are many like him out there. They all say they have 'this system' that they won't sell or tell anyone that allows them to make hundreds if not thousands of dollars a day, from Craps. They tell convince people that they can grow their bankroll when they are 'not-gambling' and provide them the income as if they 'where gambling'. Basically, what they say is that they will live the life of a high roller, and when the investor comes to town they can party with them on the winnings from their investment.

    So, I have now been approached three times with this particular scam. Mostly from guys at the tables or guys lurking around the tables. If you turn them down, they may come back at you with some sort of seeming flippant remark mostly to just get your 'fighting spirit up' where they can then Dare you to invest in them. It gets in to a serious head game with them, and they know all the tricks to get you to keep talking to them...cause that is how they eventually win. If they can get your phone, email or something from you.... they will let you be for a week then contact you.

    Just know, that there is a hustle on every corner in Las Vegas. Sex, drugs, gambling methods, broken machines that nobody knows about that pays, elite parties, strip clubs and so on.

    I would have the same opinion if Mr. Smooth contacted me and claimed he was an expert at reading bias dice and has come up with a strategy to exploit the weakness. I really don't see a difference in how I would view his strategy for winning...whether it involved complex radioscope dynamics or being a bias dice reader. In both cases, I would simply call him a fraud.

    If there is a strategy to overcome house edge...I haven't seen it. I would also surmise, no one here has either.

    Not to get off topic, but I think a few people may have associated Mr. Smooth with Mr Clean. As I recall there used to be a player called "Mr. Clean" who played in the midwest at some of the same casinos I inhabit. He was a "so called" DI who appeared to be somewhat focused on germs and ensuring his hands were clean so the dice would release properly. I don't think Mr Smooth and Mr Clean were the same fellow but some people may have confused the two. I haven't read a post from Mr. Clean in a three or four years so he might have quit the game but his trip reports were quite interesting.

    Well, you can rest assured, if you have a dollar in your pocket, there are more than a few people out there that are scheming to get it from your pocket to theirs.

    Some are really good at what they do, others are not so "Smooth".

    There are always going to be scam artists, and there is always going to be people that fall for those scams.

    It's not so much that a fool and his money are soon parted.....but rather how they came by any money in the first place. :)

    In the case of this latest dupe, he sold his home and I guess walked away with $300,000. I think a lot of these people who get scammed simply fall into extra money. I find it hard to believe these people accumulated money thru a business or some kind of astute investing. It's likely nothing more than luck. They were dummies before they got money. They are dummies after.

    I don't trust my neighbor or my banker, why the hell would I trust a guy named "Mr Smooth"?

    A follow up on Mr. Smooth...

    LOL..his means and methods for being an AP player have actually been repeated by some here who claim to play with an advantage.

    The 53-year-old Georgantas said he relies on “planning, discipline, money management and adequate bankroll” to ensure that he profits in the long run.

    http://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/accused-las-vegas-con-artist-says-he-s-the-one-being-swindled

    Comical. He offered the Review Journal a split of the profits if they would pay his $500,000 bail.
