Terrible list since it includes cheaters.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

four out of five on the list were thieves; the MIT team were fools.

MIT dolts were mainly orientals who stood out like a sore thumb in Vegas and claimed such fanciful jobs as arms dealer and cia agent. When they went to Connecticut for a practice run they lost their shirts.

Casinos love to see Asians gambling. That would only help the team.

Not sure how they're defining success. If it is by $$ netted with the least amount of effort I would say that list is totally wrong. And to include cheaters is stupid. Garbage article.
I would argue that the MIT team was a complete waste of time. There's was just a catchy story line with alot of stretching the facts.

Do you count cheaters on that list?

Also is it fair to include a team that had many different people over various years?

Probably the best people who beat the house we have never heard of.

I might be wrong but it seems to me Grosjean should be on a list like that. Considering some of the company I have no doubt he's happy that is not on the list.

Looks like they forgot The Most Feared Secretive Well-known bust riding Advantage Player on the East Coast.

Why don't you read the article. If you can't figure it out yourself then I don't think anyone here can help you.

Fitting given the quality of the individuals lauded in the article (Thorp excepted).
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
