Aug. 12, 2011 - PRLog -- On Thursday, August 25, 2011 R. Paul Wilson of Scotland and Jason England of Las Vegas will be passing through Logan, Utah en route to a private conference on gambling in Helena, Montana. At the request of their colleague, Cache Valley magician Richard Hatch, they have agreed to give a rare public demonstration of their skills cheating at cards and other forms of gambling. Both regularly serve as consultants to the casino industry and law enforcement on detecting and preventing gambling fraud. Their public demonstration will be hosted by Legends Billiard Club, 2707 So. HWY 89/91 in Nibley, just opposite Petersens and will begin at 8 p.m. Scheduled to last one hour, the demonstration will allow spectators to observe rarely seen skills at close quarters. Second dealing, bottom dealing, even the legendary center deal are likely to be demonstrated, as well as more arcane abilities that enable those with larcenous intent to fleece the unwary. Cheating at Poker, Bridge and other popular games will be discussed and demonstrated. A cover charge of just $10 will help to defray the cost of their visit. Allan Cornia, owner of Legends and himself a performing member of Hollywood's famed Magic Castle, feels that hosting such an event at Legends serves the public by demonstrating how an expert can defeat even the most experienced card players.
