Re: ERDNASE

I doubt very, very much that Nick D. was Erdnase. I saw him play on a few occasions at the Stardust when the Bank was still in operation at the Stardust Hotel and at the Dunes in 1964 in the poker room. There are many reasons in my opinion that would negate the candidate as writing the EATCT that I ...

Jimmy Grippo

Here is an interesting story about Jimmy Grippo that I would have never found out about for not having a conversation with one of the original owners of Caesars Palace.

Re: Pondering Erdnase

Re: Pondering Erdnase

This is interesting and great research but I don't think that Erdnase used a Faro Layout to practice upon. Maybe this will explain my thinking. In Reno, Nevada the Nevada Club which later became Fitzgeralds, which I hope I am correct on the name, had two or three floors of gambling. The last time I ...

Re: ERDNASE

This is a very interesting concept. Thank you for thinking of this idea. I also wonder why Smith was not asked to draw a resemblance of Erdnase, or maybe he has, and it is hidden away in some persoanl effects.

Great question.
