So Ruchman took a job at Caesars. So what? He isn�t the first and he won�t be the last. We all spend our time trying to figure out ways to take money from the casinos. So he found a way by taking a fat consulting contract. Beats working for a living.
Maybe you say, �But he knows I count because I�d talk to him at Gambler�s Book Club.� If you are a low stakes player it probably won�t make any difference. Even if he asks you not to play, this is only a hobby for you and it will make great dinner conversation back home. If you had greater aspirations, maybe you have just learned a valuable lesson about this business. You shouldn�t share your business with people who don�t need to know about it.
As for Stalker and A Real Player � Imagine you are in the NBA. You have come to a gymnasium filled with High School basketball players. They love the game, they love to talk about it, they think they are good, and they have an old coach who used to be a great high school player himself. They even have a guy who met some players from the NBA and writes as if he�s one of them. You don�t need to piss on their dreams.
Imagine the alternative. You don�t really want all these people learning the techniques that you play do you? Or worse, discussing them on an open forum. You know what happens when amateurs show up and start playing your games. This is a place for people who count cards. That�s what they know how to do and there is nothing wrong with that. Maybe you could set up a site for REAL advantage players� but then do you really want that?
