Mikki Masethat you may have watched Live Hustler Casino, claims he can beat an unbeatable game – baccarat. He certainly has many skeptics, but he also has some supporting receipts.
The poker player and Instagram sensation spoke with PokerNews during the recent World Series of Poker (WSOP) to discuss a big bluff he pulled off against the Los Angeles high-stakes legend Garrett Adelsteinand to provide insight into how he might have an edge at baccarat.
Turn a skeptic into a believer
Mase, a self-proclaimed ‘degenerate gamer’ from New York City, has a plethora of detractors, one of them being a former popular YouTuber Spencer Corneliawho delved into the hard-to-believe claims in a 17-minute video earlier this year.
Cornelia just wasn’t buying what Mase was selling, so the pro gamer invited the content creator to his home where he had receipts to back up his claims. Mase revealed win/loss statements from various casinos that showed gambling winnings throughout the year.
“It’s fascinating man, it’s legit,” Cornelia told Mase.
Cornelia went from a skeptic to a believer, but the second video didn’t seem to do much to change the minds of many viewers based on the YouTube comments section.
How could someone win in the long term at a so-called game of chance? Mase won’t divulge details of his strategy, but he did give PokerNews a brief explanation of how he wins.
“I will say it’s not impossible. I’m not the smartest man alive, but I was able to pick up some key behaviors and characteristics in the cards as well as the marketing and development of games in a casino So if you can do a bit of reverse engineering to figure out how they created their advantage, it’s not impossible to say that you worked that to your advantage,” Mase claims.
Cornelia wasn’t the only YouTube sensation to question the legitimacy of the poker player‘s claims. Adam “adam22” Grandmaisonalso passionate about poker, invited Mase on the no rider podcast to share his story. The video has just under a million views and over 4,500 comments, most of which don’t seem to buy her story.
