What is the Gambling Protection Series?
The original GPS was a series of 4 videotapes produced by Steve Forte and Paul Donnelly in the mid-1980s. The series exposed dozens of cheating techniques that were used in private games (and to a lesser-extent, casinos) and methods of protection from those techniques. The series was never intended to teach people how to cheat, but rather to protect them from cheaters.
Who is Steve Forte?
Steve is widely considered to be the foremost authority/consultant in the world on casino game protection. Although retired from the consulting business for over 10 years now, he is still sought-after by casinos and private firms for his expertise and knowledge. Steve authored two of the best books in the business on cheating: Casino Game Protection and Poker Protection. Both books are considered the standards by which all other game protection books are measured. Other books and projects are in various stages of development.
Are the moves taught, or just demonstrated, in the GPS series?
The moves are not "taught" in the conventional sense. There are no "put this finger there and that finger there" instructions. However, the goal of the original series was to understand the techniques in order to be able to spot them, and almost every technique is shown from angles that facilitate learning the core move. Put another way, if you were a serious golfer, do you think you could learn anything from watching almost 6 hours of Tiger Woods swinging his driver from a dozen different angles? When it's all said and done, there is a massive amount of technique, rhythm and handling touches to be learned from this series.
