The opportunity was in Shawnee, Okla., nearly 40 miles east of Oklahoma City. Grosjean's quarry: an offbeat version of craps played with cards.

After all, Little Joe was bleeding money. Many casino executives despise gamblers like Grosjean. Getting away, on the other hand, would give him an opportunity to come back on some future day and perhaps go unnoticed. His findings would give him a significant edge playing the card-based craps game in Shawnee. Sun wore a neon green approximation of a tennis dress. Elbows were thrown and there was a lot of jostling around the table. If the sum exceeds 9, then only the second digit is recognized for example, a 9 and 6 add up to 15 but count as 5.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} She claims to be unbothered by having blown a fortune in gambling dens around the world. Over the course of the game, players can wager on other combinations, like two 5s turned over which pays out 7 to 1. Glances were exchanged among employees running the game, but no one else seemed to take the claim very seriously — nor did they realize that something potentially more profitable and innovative than card counting was going on. I know people who clock roulette wheels and others who can control a single die at craps. Cumulatively, they rake in large profits from games that were designed to be unbeatable: While some bettors might get lucky and win in the short run, over time they are supposed to lose and the casinos are expected to win, statistically speaking. The cube determines which cards are turned over. One is the ease with which gamblers can find each other online and share tactics. Maybe he had noticed the discreet glances at Grosjean. Their scheme, their play against the casino, was perhaps too complicated to pull off, Grosjean would later concede. A gambler might bet, for example, that the sum of the first two cards in play will total 7 or If the sum equals 2, 3 or 12, he loses. Only two questions seemed to temper his confidence in taking on this particular game. The motions were signals to Munchkin: With a split-second glance, he gained the statistically significant advantage of knowing numbers likely to be excluded. He learned as much when he spent the next two days gambling on his own. Slowly, as the night grinded on, some of the high-returning prop bets started to pay off. Patrons never touch the cards. Upon her release, Sun visited several Las Vegas casino gift shops and bought souvenir decks of playing cards. Being run out of casinos is an occupational hazard for Grosjean, a professional gambler who majored in applied math at Harvard and briefly considered careers on Wall Street and in academia. When Grosjean first reconnoitered the game, he saw that the 12 playing cards used to simulate a pair of craps dice were being shuffled by a machine designed to speed up play and randomize the order of the cards. Munchkin was less than friendly, tipped modestly, demanded a lot of service. That, combined with a bit of bad luck, had put Munchkin into a difficult situation. After each round, the dealer there swept up the cards and put them in the shuffler without mixing them by hand. Whiting estimates the number of successful advantage players to be in the hundreds. Whiting acknowledges that they do not deserve to be arrested. Grosjean discovered that he could see the identity and order of at least three cards entering the machine, the bottom one held by the dealer and the two that were exposed during game play. She scrutinized the backs of the cards. An older civilian accidentally got in the middle of it. Some had crisscrossing patterns that went right to all four edges. So if security was waiting for him at the bottom, Grosjean needed to be able to run back up in the opposite direction with the hope of avoiding a confrontation. To begin, four cards are dealt face down onto the table. I decided that one day I would get back the money by playing at MGM properties. He sipped from a venti-size container of coffee and typed rapidly on his laptop computer. They accuse him of cheating. That is usually illegal, the sort of thing that can result in jail time. If that happens, the security guard could also read him the trespass act, meaning Grosjean would risk arrest if he tried to return. Armed with that knowledge, he spent several months simulating the game in software; his computer mimicked the shuffling algorithm and played the game millions of times. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Instead, they hone the sharpest legal edge they can. To experienced surveillance people, he is a known advantage player; at any time he could be spotted, matched to his picture in a database of such players and asked to leave a casino. An observant dealer, a man who appeared to be in his early 30s, discerned something fishy. When they came up, Munchkin shot a fist in the air and shouted. In the near distance stood a sign for a local casino, the Palms, where he has been shown the door more than once. Such proposition, or prop, bets favor the casino. Yet what he does is entirely legal. As I walked beside him, I tried to appear casual, with the tail of my untucked shirt covering the notepad in the back pocket of my slacks. And because regulated casino gambling now takes place in at least 40 states, casinos compete for customers in part by introducing new games, some of which turn out to be vulnerable. The thrill was feigned. But Grosjean knew that shuffling machines are computer driven and therefore only as good as they are programmed and used: Sometimes, in fact, the devices are surprisingly predictable. After that, standard rules apply. Sun had no such intention. That was true in Shawnee. Play resumed. Grosjean has a blog called Beyond Numbers, for example. She spent around a thousand hours, over four years, training herself to recognize the minute variations on particular cards. Play had been temporarily halted to accommodate another recent arrival at the felt-covered table — Richard Munchkin. In fact, she all but brags about her losses. Grosjean passed an escalator and headed down a back staircase. Grosjean specializes in finding vulnerable games like the one in Shawnee. If a total of 7 comes first, he loses. Illustration by Sarah Illenberger. Sun figured out how she could leverage these differences that were almost imperceptible and acceptable by industry standards. His son thought I had hit him, and the son jumped on my back. Two sets of six playing cards, numbered one through six, one set with red backs, the other with blue backs, serve as de facto dice. How long would they be allowed to play before being asked to leave? Grosjean was frustrated. The opportunity was in Shawnee, Okla. Before the cards are dealt, gamblers bet on banker or player or a tie. Her name was Cheung Yin Sun. It is a way to make the game feel like craps without dice directly producing a monetary outcome. They look identical to those used at the gaming tables but have holes punched through their centers to prevent cheaters from slipping a souvenir ace of spades, say, into a poker game. Still, he kept feeding Munchkin information about the cards. In recent years, however, Whiting says the ranks of advantage players have swelled. Because he has examined these shuffling machines and knows how they work, he could reliably judge the likelihood that certain cards would be excluded from play. Dealers on the table clearly knew him — he had been establishing his presence here for the past week, getting used to the game and figuring out its subtleties — and they good-naturedly commiserated with him over his propensity for losing. By Michael Kaplan. How much money would they be able to win? I view it all as preventable loss. It would be equivalent to gambling at standard craps with dice and knowing which three dice faces — out of 12 possible — would have a reduced probability of coming up on any roll. He uses his programming skills to divine the odds in various situations and then develops strategies for exploiting them. Two regular gamblers, whom Grosjean had noticed on numerous occasions in Shawnee, watched in slack-jawed surprise: Patrons rarely played for such large sums there. A player rolls a giant numbered cube, apparently made from plastic foam. Down below on the gaming floor, ringed by wall-mounted TV monitors silently showing a sporting event, slot machines chirped and crowded blackjack tables buzzed with action. Whichever side gets closer to 9 is the winner. Grosjean had explained earlier the reason for this quirk: The Grand happens to be located in a jurisdiction where it is illegal for dice to determine financial outcomes in games of chance. Mini-baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Elite Western gamblers and rattled casino bosses know her as Kelly, a fast-talking, sunglasses-wearing advantage player in her 40s. Several factors are responsible. After every two-card set is turned over, the cards were machine-shuffled before the next roll. Her father, now deceased, was a wealthy factory owner based in Hong Kong. Tens and picture-cards count as zero; aces count as 1. His signaling had not been perfected yet — some gestures were being missed. Munchkin, whose real first name is Richard, chose his professional surname because of the fact that he stands slightly taller than five feet. Following all the tumult, the table was being watched and somebody figured out what was going on.
