Casino Cheating Literature Professor?

Bet Capping
By golly, my deareth it true?

According to authorities in the State of Missouri, it is. And of all things, this professor is being accused of capping and pastposting bets. Please don't let the gaming officials take a pound of his flesh!

According to CBS St. Louis, here's what happened:

A Southeast Missouri State University professor pleaded not guilty to charges that he cheated at Cape Girardeau´s casino.

Sixty-six year-old Roger C. Arpin, a longtime literature professor, entered the plea Monday. He was arrested Friday at the Isle Casino Cape Girardeau. He is charged with "capping" his bets at a blackjack table, meaning he allegedly added to a bet after the cards were dealt and he knew he had an advantage.

The Southeast Missourian reports that Arpin is the first person arrested for cheating at the Cape Girardeau casino since it opened Oct. 30. State gaming officials state that 44 others have been arrested in Missouri´s casinos so far this year.

The charge carries a mazimum of four years in state prison. Anyone convicted of cheating casinos in Missouri is automatically banned for life from all the state´s 13 casinos.

My take: Shouldn´t Professor Arpin, if he is guilty of this, be counting cards at blackjack instead? This way he would be using his intelligence instead of risking his ass!!

Does Your Casino Need a Table Game Protection Seminar or Surveillance Training in 2013?

Table Game Seminar
Well, what has 2012 told you? Are your numbers down? Is your Baccarat hold less than it should be, especially those EZ baccarat tables with all the Panda and Dragon action? What about Roulette and Blackjack? Any sniffs of possible inside dealer scams...maybe with supervisor involvement?

These are the questions you upper casino management directors have to ask yourselves. Remember, in addition to my informative and essential game protection seminar, with emphasis on table games, I now perform complete undercover surveillance operations on casino floors.

If anyone can weed out the scams, advantage play and inside cheating, believe me, it's me! Not to sound "clicheish" but I more than been there and done that.
