Pursuit of relentless perfection

Post by stingray » Wed Nov 22, 2017 8:24 am

A Texan that has the most incredible sense of touch.

His name is Richard Turner. Magician.

If you do not know who he is I suggest you utube him and get ready to be blown away with his touch capabilities.

His movie just came out this week. http://www.dealtmovie.com/

Expanded perception of the senses pertaining to touch.
What do you think Mr Turner could do with a pair of dice with his super fine sense of touch?
If he can sense the numbers on the cards with his fingertips (which he did and a major card manufacturing company had to change their printing process), how well do you think he could place his fingers on the same spot of the dice?
Just for fun, get a new die and start feeling the pips on the faces and see how long it takes your senses to start picking up
where the pips are. After a while you can make pretty educated speculation what number is on the particular face your are examining with your finger. I tried this a couple of years ago and the results surprised me. It wasn't voodoo just increased sensitivity to surface height of the pips. That got me to thinking in how to create something that could sharpen those senses.
Has anyone looked up his name under videos in the search engine to see what he can do?
I suggest you do, to see what a trained hand and nimble fingers can do.

Jack has a short video out showing what he can do with dice.

He was a dice mechanic for 50 years and has a book and video out and has crooked dice for sale which should improve you srr.

What a charming old fella Jack is. I would be more interested in his stories about getting booted out of casinos. THOSE have to be some great stories. I got kicked off the craps table during a winning set for not hitting the back wall with both dice at Paris, LV. I cannot imaging what would have happened if they caught someone switching dice! At least they did not kick me out of the whole property. I have been allowed back with no apparent recollection by the crew. Jack, they would remember that gentleman. He made it 50 years with his mechanic methods! That is really impressive. He has got to have some acrimonious stories. When he writes that book, I am buying it on Amazon.

It would be an honor to cross his path, but I would be afraid to play at his table.

Just watch how the biggest player at the table is betting and bet the same way. Usually guys like Jack are working as hired guns.

I asked Jack

Casinos and fair dice

We are well aware that in the old days there were crooked craps games in casinos.
In todays modern corporate run casinos, it would be interesting to hear your viewpoint
if the casinos are in any way altering anything in any way to make things more in their favor.
There have been many myths circulating for years that casinos are doing something to skew things more in their favor. I am well aware that craps is a negative expectation game and the house edge is already built in every bet but is there something they can do, have done or are doing currently without the public knowing.
in my current research, all that I have discovered from a gaming protection expert is that if casinos wanted a random roll they would keep the table deck hard and not make the deck soft by putting things under the felt such as waterproof volara foam which makes the playing surface like a trampoline.


Jack said

alll casino,s are 100% on the up and up,,, they have a partner called ,HUMAN GREED and that, my friend is why casino,s will be standing when you and i are long gone.. thanks,,jack

so the short bus crew with their biased dice and casino cheating fantasy should be put to rest once and for all since those are words coming from an expert.
