Richad Marcus mentions Russ if not his book, in his blog. I don't have the
book, but have looked at his blog.

Yes he mentioned him on the blog. Says " the guy seems to have some solid
views on poker cheats and cheating that coincide with my own."

Wait a second.....those 2 guys haven't ever been seen in the same place at
the same time...

I think you know where I'm going with this.

I don't think Russ G. and Richard Marcus could be the same person. When I
looked at the picture, Marcus was wearing a clean shirt and he didn't have a
big beer gut. But the only way to know for sure is to follow Marcus home
and see if he pulls in to a trailer park.

Yes, it is most confusing. In addition to Russ's skill, he also seems to
share Russ's modesty.

I was particularly struck by:

"then 25 more [years] as the world's most accomplished professional poker
and casino cheater, inventing many of the world's best poker and casino
cheating moves along the way."

Certainly they can't both be the world's most accomplished cheaters.
However, they also can't be lying, as cheaters never do.

I just don't know what to make of it.

Richard Marcus used to write an article in Casino Operator (I think),
which is a journal I receive a subscription of for free as a part of my
job. The magazine itself is just a POS flat out, but Richard Marcus'
articles were always unreadable. He was always bragging about how great he
is, and telling us stories demonstrating how smart (he thought) he is, and
so on and so forth. The stories relayed little information because the
manner in which he cheated years and years ago are no longer valid.

He does have skill as a cheat, in that he wasn't a simple
quarter-on-a-string dropped, but his total obnoxiousness seriously
outweighs any "contributions" he could make to casino security.

Russ G. is the world's greatest poker cheat - as he's told us countless
hundreds of tiimes. Richard Marcus must have cheated Russ out of his
cheater title. However, there are two areas where Russ G. will always be
undisputed king. The first is telling, and re-telling and re-telling thirty
year old poker cheating stories. The second is attacking and smearing the
reputations of dead poker players who can not defend themselves. Maybe
Richard Marcus is just king of the
poker-cheats-who-do-not-live-in-a-house-trailer.
