I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Nifty little baccarat scam

Here is a baccarat scam that was uncovered in the Philippines.  There is nothing new under the sun.  This is a move that Keith Taft called The Super Drop, and he was doing it back in the mid 1980s.  In his version of this scam players were allowed to cut the cards in blackjack by hand.  The cutter would riffle the edge of the deck before cutting, and a hidden camera would record the order of cards.  Mark Billings describes the move in detail in his book,The Ultimate Edge.  Be sure to watch the video to the end.
