A Fearless, Gambling Psychopath, 31 December 2006
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

A math wizard-nerd's brain is being used by someone who promises he'll have a sex life, too, if he continues to help them solve how to beat the house in blackjack with some "system."

Working in pairs and having several math wizards from the local college into this gambling thing, proves fatal when one of them, "Penny Chai" is chased down and killed by the thugs in the private club.....or so it looked.

The leader of the group trying to obtain riches through cheating in gambling is so bold, so unafraid, that he actually walks into the police room at looks at material off Goren and Eames' desks during the lunch hour, trying to find out what the cops know about the killers and the gambling kids. That's when Goren knows he's up against someone who is totally fearless and a psychopath.

Goren and Eames discover the scam artists are up to much more, however, than "counting cards." The big payoff is rigging up a program to beat the horse races, fixing a race and then cashing in a longshot, but not being detected. It also about having an inside guy change the bets before they become officials. It's a little confusing, but it's all illegal.

The main focus is simply about this one guy "Ken Harris" (Ian Kahn) who is crazy, which is not an unusual theme in this successful television. Usually the last eight minutes of each show are devoted to Goren breaking down the suspect but this one covered 12-13 minutes. It was a fascinating ending.
