Six Stories of True and Successful Gambling Stings, Scams and Outsmarting the System. Reads like fiction - Beat the Casino; Chuck Berry, the Greatest Horse; The Poker Game; The Bakerville Run; Vegas, The Man!; Pete Chaser

Yusef spent the weekend locked up in jail. He was charged with fraud and a number of minor charges, and in the official docket was a lengthy list of names of all those who had made themselves available to be called as witnesses. Officer Lyle and his partner were not happy with the way things turned out. But at least they were satisfied that justice had prevailed and that the law had caught up with another criminal before too much damage or loss was incurred.

The only problem for all those mentioned above is this: There was one hell of a twist in the tale.

Firstly, early on the Monday morning, Yusef’s cash check was honored by his bank.

Secondly, the local newspapers told the horrifying news that a certain rank outsider had won the Derby at the local racetrack. The name of this nag that had attracted so little attention, but that ran the other thoroughbreds ragged was Chuck Berry -- at starting odds of forty to one.

Did Yusef make his quarter of a million? Oh no. He never made a quarter of a million at all. The fact of the matter is that he made much more. The horse, on which he wanted to bet, won at forty to one. That alone was $220,000.00. It had to be paid to him because it was written into his statement. Between the company that sold him the car and the police department, he was prevented from doing a legitimate business transaction, and the court ruled that they had to pay. It was never disclosed in what ratio they split this "little" expense, but all that is known is that they had to pay - and they did.

And, they were all sued by said Yusef for slander, assault, wrongful arrest, suffering, defamation of character and a host of more minor infringements of his rights and character. Did he mind? Heck no! Did he plan it? Right! He’s not telling.
