I'm always impressed at the amount of brainpower people can apply in order to beat the house. In this case, it's all in the shuffling of the cards.

When a gang of gambling cheats sussed out how to beat the house, they inadvertently highlighted a loophole from a shuffled deck. It took a magician-turned-mathematician to reveal how.
