I'd be interested in hearing more about Richard's work with JG, if that's discussable.



So would I.

He's not talking

I think we'd all love to hear some of that =P.. Could he possibly discuss what's mostly already been published in open articles? Someone on here posted an article where JG was interviewed talking about beating card craps in CA by signaling to Richard. Apparently it was a pretty ad hoc (at least the article made it sound like it) so I'd love to hear the "bathroom discussion" that took place before hand that led up to the play. Most of us AP's have stumbled across opportunities and had to have the "bathroom talk" with someone to squeeze in some extra EV on a trip or something. Personally, I've been in a mens bathroom stall with RS in downtown Vegas in the last year... ALL WE DID WAS DISCUSS GAMBLING.

How did the radio show get started? Why did each of you end up deciding to do it (to educate people, to have fun discussions about the secret things you did every day, etc, etc)?

Bob - While this may be in your book (my teammate still has your book as he's supposed to head up our machine play), or very early episodes of GWAE before my time as a listener, how did you get in to VP? How did the curiosity all begin, followed by what steps you took to investigate the math to find out you had an edge? Did you always excel in mathematics or did you have help?

Richard - Same question about blackjack. Also, he's banned from competing for the Grosjean cup. Did all of that knowledge just come over years of experience?

I'd love to hear about both of your respective "early days" when you still made mistakes (or more mistakes perhaps), how you evaluated plays, what you did to correct your mistakes, etc, etc.

Sounds like you guys need someone to interview you two... ;-)

Maybe. One of Richard's friends, Cat Hulbert, was going to do this and she decided she didn't know me well enough to ask interesting questions.

We do have some mutual friends who could do a good job of such an interview --- but most wish to keep a low profile and are hence "radio shy".

They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

Have you ever played a VP machine where you thought perhaps something is not right? If so what did you do?

Expand a ton on this... did you ever find a "glitch" (which I believe he's discussed one or two over the years), and also did you ever find a "too good pay table" (which is not a glitch) that you found morally acceptable to exploit, and thus you did...

I'll never forget that night at The D (couldn't make that up - that's where we were).

Is there any good way to deposit lots of cash without getting banned by your bank? Slot players can usually get a check with every W2 but what do table game and poker players do?

Also will any of the current or former hosts write another book?
