Lost in the thread is the role that TCR played. Michael Knapp posted a nice statement on CASINO that explains TCR role and the need for information. The authors have never claimed that their work is unassailable; it is based on the best information they have at the time. Last night, Allan Myers [whose wife promises to buy him a modem] called on other matters and I discussed the ESQUIRE CLUB chip with him. He said that he thought the chip had been pulled from the 5th Edition and would be in the 6th.
Moral: When we chippers come up with some information different than that contained in TCR, send it to the authors.
On a side note, Rene, given that the chip cannot be attributed to the Fallon club, I won't make an offer, but thank you, anyway.
