The Omaha Kid

Perhaps the greatest counter of them all was the Omaha Kid. That’s only his nickname, but its close enough so that every casino boss in the world who has ever met The Kid across a 21 table will know exactly who I am talking about. He probably has fleeced more casinos for more money than any other counter in the world. The Omaha Kid and Holdem Poker drifted to Nevada from the Midwest in the early 1950s. There were only a few casinos in the state then, but through the years The Kid consistently beat practically every one of them. He also would periodically make trips across the country to hit the places where 21 were still played. Then Nevada gambling started building up and he had his pick of the state.

Omaha Player

Few casino bosses knew about the count then. They just thought The Kid was an extremely lucky player. He was more than lucky. He had a mind like a steel trap and almost a photographic memory. But as the years wore on, casino owners finally realized that nobody could be so lucky so often and so consistently; the beginning of the end came for The Kid in Nevada in the late 1950s. He had won more than $60,000 in a downtown Las Vegas poker club. The boss of the club told The Kid he was too lucky, and he didn’t want him to play there anymore. But The Kid wanted to be a wise guy. He said, as the story goes. "I’ll make you a proposition. Let me play and, if I lose, you can keep all my money, naturally. But if I win, and quit when I feel like it, I will still give you back half of my winnings." The boss mulled over the proposition for a few moments and then turned it down. "I don’t know what you’re doing, sonny," he said. "I know you’re not cheating, but you’re doing something. You’re too smart for me, Kid. Take your business to the Strip and give them the headaches." It’s a good thing the boss turned down the proposition, because The Kid probably would have been the new owner. But the boss was smart enough to spread the word, and gradually The Kid was barred from club after club. Then when the count became known to the masses through a flood of count books on the market, the bosses finally realized what The Kid had been doing all those years.

Omaha Kid at England

He started using disguises. He would bleach his hair; wear a moustache, Vandyke beard, anything to camouflage his appearance. It worked for a while, but soon the bosses organized their own intelligence network to combat counters and cheaters and The Kid couldn’t play anywhere. Then, like a gift from heaven, England opened large-scale of poker online game. The Kid went to England, and you can guess what happened. He annihilated the English casinos and was going strong for about three or four years until finally the English got "hip" to the count. And a few years ago, he returned to Nevada. By this time, Nevada had a new generation of casino employees mixed with the old-timers, and the rookies didn’t know about The Kid. He had grown a moustache and, as was the style, his hair was long and curly.
