A seasoned veteran of the gaming capital of the world, Las Vegas, Nevada. Moved to Vegas back in the 1960's from Chicago and Detroit. My early teen years running numbers for the bookies in the suburbs of Detroit and Chicago. Now a retired Vegas casino executive with memories of a wide open city with-out corporate influence. Those were the years when the boy's from Chicago ran some strip properties. Caesars Palace was only a dream, Howard Hughes was buying properties.
I broke bread with Lefty Rosenthal at Tony Roma's on East Sahara Ave the evening a hit was ordered from the boy's on Lefty. After dinner Lefty started his Caddie and the car exploded. What saved his life, Lefty always started his car with the drivers door opened and the reinforced driver seat. Lefty Rosenthal's life was portrayed in the movie "Casino" by Robert DiNero and this night certainly was part of the movie. I even had an extras part in this movie, which was recorded mostly in the now demolished Landmark Hotel & Casino. DiNero's (Rosenthals) home was on the old DI Golf Course on Desert Inn Rd and to this day still a tourist attraction. Tony Spalatro was played by Joe Pesce as the overseer for the Chicago Mob.
Supervised live gaming for 20years. I've seen it all, hundreds of thousands of dollars lost on a turn of a card, you name it I witnessed it. Betting on Sports since I retired in 1987/88 from the casino business and enjoying life as a sports gambler to this day.
All Sports Picks are documented on my web site. Example when you go to the NFL picks page please scroll down to the games that have ended and the results. I document all picks for 365 days. However, once the Football season starts I must start over with another year.
