Cool strategy at how he remember numbers, and not picture or not counting cards.

I love this story Mr. Smith and you summed it up very well. He negotiated the best possible odds knowing the amount of his play would throw them into leveraging the theory that he would be inclined to stop after going 2 million in the hole or a similar scenario. He even gave up the regular comps of free helicopter tours and penthouse suits to gain even more advantage in his negotiations. It is the first time I think someone has beat a casino at its own game legitimately walking in and out ahead.
