A very interesting read.  I love the fact that he spent so much time learning a strategy and devising this act but then completely forgot to plan an exit strategy.  Doh!

It's also interesting to note how greed ensured he came unstuck in the end.  Several times in fact.  embarassed

Awsome show,i loved seeing those whammies dance across the bottom of the screen.It's a sad ending but while he did corrupt things with his life ,i don't see him as a cheater on the show.He simply figured the pattern out,should of went to Vegas with his genius mind.
