    For anyone who was doubting my statements, you might want to take notice of Flash's many posts in the last few weeks in the dice influencing and horseracing threads? You will also notice that he posts on these topics with the same, definitive, 'claim of expertise' that he does with his posts on card counting.

    I post this and the original post of this thread, not as an attack on Flash, just as a window to who he really is. He is a retired guy, playing some blackjack at an advantage, that is a gambling degenerate. That's ok, nothing wrong with that. But you might just want to keep this in mind when considering some of his advice and statements that he makes in such an authoritative, "claim of expertise" manner. And since he also uses Norm's site to partner and team up with players that he "mentors", this also should be a consideration and concern for anyone considering teaming up with him.

    I never considered Flash an expert ever since I first came to the site. This was when he was "robbed of over $100,000." What kind of an idiot carries around $100K in cash to go to the casino? If you have that kind of action, you get a marker. If anonymity is a concern, then leave on +2 count if you run out of money! People don't have checking accounts for the high interest rates, they do it so their money is in a bank vault. As a greenie, I very politely suggested he was a gambling degenerate in need of help. People then got in on it, telling me how stupid it was NOT to take your entire life savings with you into the casino each and every trip, and how they did things like stuff $20K into their shoes. This led to my first banning. Great site Norm. I seriously question MOST of the so-called experts. Most of them are just idiots who have nothing better to do than pretend they are geniuses. They spend way more time posting than they do winning. Norm's site is a gambling addicts' club for those in denial, which is why the good people don't post there anymore. I would like to know who carries around $100K by themselves to the casino, and where they are playing next. Please post your info.

    Just speculating, but he may be that he is unable to get a marker. He had two issues with two different casinos where he took out markers and did not repay them. There was legal action involved and he settled for a fraction of what was owed.

    Also, I didn't want to really get into the robbery, because I have heard different versions. But let's just say, some legit AP's that know more about the situation have stated the story doesn't add up. The money lost was not all his and there is speculation negative EV gambling was involved.

    This is precisely why, I believe new players that get involved with him, mentoring and possibly partnering and teaming up, combining bankrolls, should be aware of his history.

    Who the hell told you to carry that kind of cash? I think some of these guys read too many of the books about the various MIT teams or other teams, that played higher stakes and had to have access to those kinds of funds.

    For most solo players, playing mid-level stakes, with a max bet in the mid black range, you would be foolish to carry more than low 5 figures. Even if you aren't a Vegas local, as I am and travel to Vegas or some other destination for a 3 or 4 day trip, you should only need 20 grand, maybe 25 grand to be extra conservative.

    It is a little bit tricky because you have to find the right balance. No one wants to walk away from a monster count in the middle of a shoe because you are out of funds. Even if you have been losing to get to that situation, (which you probably have or you wouldn't be low on funds), you just never want to walk away from those rare high count +EV situations.

    Forced to walk away from a couple of these +EV situations and you start thinking about carrying more funds. But experience a robbery, (as I have) and you want to find that level that is just the right balance.

    One thing I strongly recommend is to use your bank(s) to your advantage. For players that travel, have an account or two at one or two of the national type banks, BoA, or Wells Fargo, and let them "move" at least part of your necessary funds, meaning you carry less through airports and on your person. If you need to replenish in the destination city, you go to the bank.

    For players, that play alot locally in one city, arrange with your bank higher ATM withdraw limits. Banks can and will do this, but you have to ask (or demand it). You have to go higher up than the low level account rep at the first desk. Talk to the bank manager and tell him/her what your needs are. But, you don't want to use this option too regularly. You don't want to be moving money, like 5 figures in and out every day. A couple national type banks have closed accounts on AP's that do this. I use this just to replenish, if I should lose enough of my low daily BR, that I don't feel comfortable staring a new shoe with the remaining funds on hand. I can withdraw several thousand from 2 different accounts just to replenish to a level that will allow me to safely continue to play.

    It takes a little trial and error to figure out what the right balance is and what works for each individual circumstance.

    See, I know it doesn't add up without having talked to anyone. Because only an IDIOT just walks around by himself with a 100K. Simple as that.

    That's interesting. Not paying back markers. Getting "robbed" of money that wasn't even his. I think we found our robber. FLASH! My little brother used to get robbed all the time, Our house got broken into constantly. Never any signs of forced entry, fucking genius burglar whoever this guy was. LOL.

    I can't remember. Some hack over there. He said he brings his entire bankroll with him, in cash. Says he stuffs into his shoes and other weird places. Nice to know in case I ever run into him in an alley.

    If you play real high limits and you must remain anonymous, then there is a certain minimum amount of cash you need to bring that's sort of high. In that case, you go to bank, then go straight to the casino. You don't hide it in your shoes. You have a strong box bolted into your car. That's my opinion on the matter.

    Flush seems to be a degen with a lot of money who learned a count system, got good variance, and started making money for a change. He posts that he made $8K at one table because he accidentally bet a 5K chip. Wow I am impressed with his expertise. NOT

    The most disgraceful part of Flush is he was cheering for T3 while knowing that T3 was not talking about BJ.

    After over 10000 BS bragging posts, it turns out that T3 doesn't even play BJ! What a damn joke, LOL!

    Really no more for me to even say on this topic of Flash's lifetime degenerative gambling "issues" (and btw, he himself described himself as a degenerative gambler for many years of his life). I think numerous posts by not only Flash, but T3 and moses, in the past several days on the topics of dice influencing (craps), horseracing, and sports betting, speaks volumes concerning these guys and whether or not they really qualify as AP's.

    I, myself do a little sports betting during football season. Occasionally partaking in -Ev gambling doesn't disqualify you from the ranks of AP. In my case, I know it is negative EV and view it as entertainment. A couple $100 bets a week has a negative EV of a few dollars....less than a matinee movie ticket. But when you start trying to justify negative EV play, convincing yourself (and no one else) that your play is +EV, like "dice influencing", you are not only a degenerate gambler, but a degenerate gambler in denial.

    I completely agree. As bad as it was for T3 to mislead everyone (and I even include Norm), that his claims were about regular straight up blackjack, when they weren't, it was 10 times worse for Flash and even Tarzan to not speak up and say something. I give both Flash and Tarzan the benefit of doubt, in that maybe they too didn't initially know what T3 was speaking of (even though they are close comrades). Last summer Tarzan even stated that "he didn't know what T3 was doing".

    But at some point in the last year, through private discussions and their weekend "symposiums", they both became well aware and at that point they both became complicit in this deception and misleading that T3 has engaged in for more than a year now.

    BTW, I love how T3 takes a couple days break and then returns and just pushes on like nothing happened....like he wasn't debunked and discredited. Still painting himself as the expert. That is some Fucked up shit!

    After T3 confession, Flush stated that he knew that T3 was not talking about BJ all along. So all his cheering for T3 only means one thing - dishonesty!

    Default RollingStoned, Bjarg Destroy Flash--T3 and Norm Defend

    Might serve you will to steer clear of ZMF 'round here, btw.--RollingStoned

    After being mentored by ZMF and Tarzan I was prepped with the knowledge to do things no other AP had done.--She3

    It is indeed his long lived gambling addiction what recently led him to lose a lot of money which he then tried to cover by inventing a theft that we all know never happened.--Bjarg

    This site allows you to say why you disagree with another poster. Personal attacks with zero info are not "funny" or useful. --Norman

    I am aware of a theft that actually happened. This allegation makes no sense. Sounds like the old wives gossip group at the conspiracy site.--She3

    But when it comes to advice, oftentimes (Obv not always) what ZMF writes is flat out wrong (not even talking about CC). Don't know why, maybe ignorance or lack of experience in certain areas or lack of knowledge of the law. Maybe because he realizes giving poor advice would indirectly benefit him.--RollingStoned

    If you ever post this paranoia again, it will be your last post. KJ has made these absurd, baseless, nonsensical accusations hundreds of times with zero evidence.--Norman

    Yeah right. T3 keeps repeating the same baseless overblown claims and you are OK with that crap! You are just so biased and unfair!

    I was around for backend of the ZMF "theft." I was a new poster. So it is fairly recent. He claimed to have been robbed of $100K in a parking lot--that was the gist. The clear impression I got from this was that he had a serious gambling problem. I posted, quite seriously and without any knowledge of the drama, that he needed help. I chastised others for encouraging problem gambling. Of course, I was met with harsh criticism, and told what an esteemed expert ZMF is. I questioned what kind of an expert carries around 100K alone in a parking lot, and this apparently unimportant detail was ignored--except for a few ridiculous comments made by morons, insisting that it's proper to take their entire bankrolls with them, hidden in their socks and cargo pants, every time they go to a casino. I wasn't even assuming the theft was imaginary.

    Point being, everyone does KNOW ZMF has a gambling problem, because it was patently obvious the moment he shared this poorly concocted story. Notice not even Norma disputes this on factual grounds. She3 does not "know" anything (except that he wants to blow ZMF), and the allegation is completely logical. To my knowledge, the only thing not quite accurate is that there is no proof that ZMF isn't a problem gambler who happened to also be robbed--however unlikely that may seem to be.
