All this Reno talk is amusing me. I lived in the area from 1973 to 2005. I
knew or know many of the people you mentioned very well. Tuna, Hippie John,
Margie Heinz(Eldo card room manager as you asked), Charlie Bates, Mike
Gainey, Billy V, didn't know Oz had passed away, nice guy, thats too bad.
Don't remember all the names you ask about, but no doubt I knew most of
them, and I probably know you, whoever you are. Did you know Kevin Redican?
Railroad Mac? You must know Steve Brecher. Freddy Deeb played in Reno in the
80s, knew him well. It would take to long to list all the Reno poker people
I know. Who are you anyway? LOL

Do you know if she ever dealt blackjack at the ElDorado?

I remember a blackjack dealer named Margie at the ElDorado
sometime around... oh, maybe 1990ish. She was exceptionally
competent, but the thing that makes her stand out in my mind
is that she remembered me from trip to trip. I'd be there
maybe twice a year, she remembered who I was, who I was with,
and what we'd talked about on my previous trip.

Hans Lund .. I played 5-10 at the old Sahara in 1981 and his mother was
there playing . She had the same glasses and there was no question that
they were related .. never knew her name

Dont know his wifes name , but I know that when Ali married Becky that it
just about killed Tuna . She was a redhead (after Becky) , a little extra
weight , but he seemed crazy about her , but he grabbed her on the rebound
from Becky
