He felt that if they had a child, she would be more committed to him. The child would serve to strenghten their union. BUT HE WAS WRONG.

This was the exact post I was going to make. It's the classic lesson of gangster movies like Casino and Scarface.

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont

And all this time I thought he just didn't want a fat bride
There was madness in any direction, at any hour…You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning…. And that, I think, was the handle-that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting-on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave….So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark-that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

From what I heard, he sang to the feds, as his "golden parachute" for if ( more like when) things went south. HE apparently gave the FBI all the inside goods on what happened at the stardust.

One thing that always kinda amused me about Rosenthals website-So, here's a guy who knows 'old Vegas' as well (if not better) than anyone. In his "Top 5 Sharpies and Wiseguys", three are 'legendary' poker players- Chip Reese, Doyle and Billy Baxter. The old Vegas stories about those guys being basically dishonest dirtbags are everywhere, but today, they're beatified as heroes or dignified idols worth looking up to (when in reality, they're nothing more than degenerate scum who just happened to 'get there first') yet there's old Leftys website, giving an unapologetic, very public wink at their past.

I thought the same thing, and you're like the only guy I've seen on these forums who I've acknowledge what has to be the truth... that if these guys came up in vegas in that era, and were successful, they were cheats. Period.
