Yes that is an idea Rawdawg.

The game is a private high stakes formal poker game, like a casion game, dealer dealt etc. Its exclusive that is to say we can't get a seat there. All we have is a guy, whith no dexterity, a player in that game, who will cheat if he can. We are looking or trying to think of a simple way to give him an edge. We have been scratching our heads and this was just one idea that someone mentioned.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I'm assuming your man can run the numbers in his head and play a strong, solid game. Also, I'm assuming the dealer can't be corrupted and you have no access to the decks other than during play.

Can the dealer be tracked? I've had many casino dealers very lax in shuffling the cards. Sometimes, just 2 riffles and a cut. If your man can memorize previous cards played, he can adjust his odds to turn folds into calls or bets.

How about having some of those "As Seen on TV" glasses where you can see behind yourself. Your neighbors might be lax about protecting their hands.

Just pondering...

One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.

I might be wrong, but I assume you mean this, I don't understand the technique at all but I hope this helps.
