A blind man at my table
« on: July 08, 2010, 10:53:16 PM »
Just when I thought I have seen it all. I was playing last night and a guy sits next to me, he was blind. He had his stick thing and a casino PR lady helped him from the front door (I assume he just walked in) to the roulette table. His buy in was for $500, nickels.  The dealer placed his bets and I did help him out quite a bit.

Here is the weird part...... I was playing a method, all my numbers written down. Maybe an hour into his arrival, another guy sat down. He wanted to play the 35 and 32, his 'lucky numbers'. He asked if those numbers have hit in a while. The dealer who just came on, had no idea.

The blind guy says (too weird) the 32 hit 20 spins ago and the 35 hit 23 spins ago. The other guys says, 'ok thanks'. I checked my numbers and counted backwards. The blind guy was dead on perfect. Anyways, he stayed for around 3 hours, left with a profit. The dealer told floor who then called 'whoever', then came over and walked the guy away. Has anyone else seen blind people at their table?  Ken

This is amazing! Maybe he has a sixth sense or something. Blind people can focus better than the rest of us and thy can notice things we don't. Now that I think about it, he could make some sort of estimations predictions (about ball speed etc.) with th sound of th ball running over the wheel or something. Or he could be an old time gambler/ roulette player that lost his eyesight after he became knowledgeable about roulette. Who knows...
Thanks for sharing.

Sixth sense? No, but humans only use a small percentage of our brains power and blind people have to rely far more on concentrating on memory. And as they cant see they listen more carefully and memorize, whereas most of us just keep looking at things and writing them down, so they are probably using alot more of their brains as a result. Also they perfect their sense of touch and smell, somehing that ordinary people have little need to practice and improve.

1) Croupier announces all spins
2) Man has nothing visual to distract his focus on the game

I have always imagined myself training to keep spin stats on all the numbers in my head "to fool the casino".  I have been somewhat successful playing chess in my head (blindfold) and this is quite a common ability among professional players.  The roulette felt and a chess board are similar only roulette is simpler.

I'm a true believer in betting cold numbers and I am not surprised he walked away profitable. : )
