Re: ERDNASE

A considerable weight has been given to M.D. Smith words, but has anybody thought of him as the real author not just the illustrator? Has anybody investigated his familiarity with a deck pf cards? Do we have examples of his writing? Could he be Erdnase with his real identity hidden in plain sight?

Re: Ladies who drive a deck well?

I have asked this already in another thread, but no one answered.
Did anyone see Scarne cutting to the aces from a borrowed deck?
It is true that he fooled the best crooked gamblers when he was only 19?

Apparently in many countries the selling of copies is so common, that is discussed openly, and no one seems to have a second thought about it.

John Scarne claimed that when he was 19, he was able to fool some of the best card sharps of his time using their deck to cut to the aces hundreds of times for one straight week.
Is that true?
Has anybody seen Scarne performing this?
