The cheating story Mickey MacDougall tells is right out of "Jack Pots" https://www.lybrary.com/jack-pots-stori ... 22157.html Chapter 23: Origin Of The Looloo. He only changed the name from Looloo to Lalapaloosa.

Mickey McDougall was a svengali pitchman. There are not many of us about. I don't suppose there are 25 in the entire world. REAL svengali pitchmen that is. He was one of them. Here is a video of David Walker (that Harry Lorayne used to work with) telling how Mickey McDougall showed him the right way to go about things.

The story is also in his book 'Gamblers Don't Gamble', but I think that came after this radio show.
