Real Life Case Study of
Glen A. from Las Vegas, Nevada
was formerly a mortgage broker from San Diego.
After my business completely fell apart in 2007, I moved
to Las Vegas and started working for another lender to put
together short sales.
short sale is a sale where a lender agrees to accept less than
the loan balance because the property is now worth less than the

would drag on for months, and I still couldn’t get decisions
out of the banks. By
the time a bank said “yes,” my buyers would have given up on

I sit in the gambling capital of the world, and I can’t figure
out how to make any money.
started playing poker in several of the local poker rooms.
My results were pretty spotty until several of the local
players who always seemed to be in the poker rooms explained to
me how they made money. They made their money by ganging up on
unsuspecting new players. They would play a low stake friendly
game with their fellow conspirators and wait for the “mark.”
The mark is the newcomer who doesn’t know what he is
sounded even worse than the short sale business.
tried some online poker but the hours were horrible. The best
time to play is at night, and if you are serious about making
any money in the poker rooms, you will end up playing every
night. My girlfriend didn’t care much for the hours and I didn’t
was ready to give up when I got a call from Greg Fletcher.
He had gotten my name from Martin Silverthorne.
I had forgotten that I answered a newspaper ad a while
back to work on a gambling project.
I just missed getting chosen for that project, but I
guess my name stayed on the list and I got a call from Greg.
told me about his new strategy for three card poker.
I had played the game a few times and I really liked it,
but like most players I didn’t have any winning system for the
told him I would get back to him the next day.
I wanted to sleep on it.
I talked to my girlfriend late into the night.
finally said that I had no downside to trying this.
I hated my job and I had looked into the local poker
rooms and discovered that they were basically traps set up to
prey on newcomers.
I decided to try it. Greg
had a complete course put together at this point and wanted me
to go through the same process a new client would. He gave me the information, and I downloaded the Power Poker
Strategy course and printed out the manual and bonus books.
was intrigued from the first page on.
This was what I had been looking for.
I ended up studying it for an hour and a half, and by
then I felt like I pretty well understood how to use it.
started playing practice games that night at the online casino
the course recommended. Playing was really easy.
I used the Automatic Bet Selector which comes with the
course and which does everything for you except click on your
mouse to make each play.
played with $1 bets for over two hours.
I became vaguely aware that Jennie had gotten up and had
been watching me. I
finally looked and saw her sitting in the dark..

it works pretty well. I am up over $2,000 making dollar bets. This system is really good.”
are still just practicing, aren’t you?”
I am. I am not
crazy enough to start risking real money yet.”
smiled, yawned and drifted back to bed.
I hadn’t told her that I had been playing for real and
that the $2,000 in winnings was real.
finally went to sleep, but I woke up at 5:50 and played another
hour and a half. Since
it was a Saturday and Jennie didn’t work, I didn’t see her
until after 9:00 a.m.
I was sitting there drinking coffee with a notepad and a
bunch of numbers in front of me.
are you doing? Are
you working on another short sale?”
seemed to have forgotten where we had left off the night before.
no. I am figuring
out how much I can make with the poker system.”
wasn’t ready to talk about poker yet, not without her first
cup of java.

winning over $3,000 in my first night of online play, I was
convinced. I mean
theory is one thing but I had real proof looking me in the eye. This system was really good.
decided then to try the system out in a couple of my favorite
casinos. I first
went to Arizona Charlie’s which has a very friendly, down-home
kind of atmosphere. I
bought in for $500 and started with $5 ante bets. I played about
four hours and pulled in over $4,000.
got home at 6:00 and brought Jennie up to date.
In less than 24 hours since I had downloaded the Power
Poker course, I was up over $7,000.
gave it a rest for several days and worked on short sales.
By Thursday, I had had it.
I just lost another deal because the idiot I work with at
one of our banks couldn’t make a decision on a really good
offer for a real dog of a property, and my clients finally gave
up and bought a different house.
thought again of how much I had enjoyed winning at three card
poker and how much I really despised working with these banks
whose mortgage reps were as thick as bricks.

wrote out my letter of resignation and handed it to my
supervisor on my way out the door.
finished out the first week with some more three card poker and
ended up making over $11,000 for the week.
make a long story short, I have never looked back.
I now play in local casinos two or three days a week when
I feel like it.
play online in three different casinos, two or three times a

made less than $10,000 a week.
