Joe Classon is quite a well known blackjack professional cheater. Over the years, he had formed alliances with other players and had been a part of a very successful cheating ring.
Joe Classon was born in the New York City in the year 1933. He and his brother Henry Classon had first been introduced to the world of gambling in the 40s by their uncle, Stanley Classon. Stanley too had been a very well known cheater in the city at the time. Over the years, Henry developed his skills cheating at poker while Joe got drafted during the war to Korea.
He used to frequently play poker and blackjack with the other troop members on their breaks between combat. However, initially Joe had just been an ordinary honest player and had not really thought about cheating. In fact, the other players and Joe used to often get cheated at the game by the other players who used to try second dealing with them.
By the time he had come back from this drafting in Korea, Henry, his brother had already become a very full fledged casino cheater. However, Joe did not really want to join his brother in his scandals since he had been more keen on his other career options. However, later on he changed his thoughts and formed an alliance with his brother.
The first ever cheating assignment for Joe Classon had been in a casino in the year 1954 in Puerto Rico. His brother had taught him to pastpost on the roulette wheels and both of them together managed to pull it off quite easily. Later on they even tried the same trick in several casinos in Puerto Rico, Cuba and Las Vegas.
Later on, Joe married a dancer from a hotel named Ruthie and took cheating to a whole new level. Ruthie joined their team and became the claimer. She used to dance at the casinos while taking the chips from different tables.
There had been several stories revolving this, especially one where she had been dancing around the tables and had been snatching the claims when a Hollywood producer saw the entire move along with the pastposting technique that they were using. The producer asked Ruthie to screen test for a movie. She went for the screen test, starred in some movie and also married the producer.
Later on, Joe split his way from his brother and started his own team along with his old friends, Jerry Palmer and Duke Swenson, both of them were well known cheaters.
From the year 1969 to 1989, Joe Classon managed and run the best pastposting team around the world. He took it one step further when he not only pastposted at roulette tables but also very successfully at the blackjack tables.
In fact, his blackjack cheating methods included quite a lot of other tricks too except for pastposting. Over the years he managed to earn thousands of dollars from the casinos by cheating them with much ease.
