Did anyone really believe Tripp would go in and tame roulette?

Please take a sec and vote for Tripp at topwebcomics... I will throw you a surprise party!

@Ultimate the Hedgehog - Maybe this is all
part of the training.

@qazox - Roulette or craps would be better for
testing Tripp's new power but I agree, poker is
the better cheat for making money.

@Chaos Master - He needs to go home and
practice.

@gamekidg7 - Anser: E, all of the above. :)

@waterpistolriot - Maybe they were distracted by all the space hopping kidnapping craziness. ;)

@francisco - Haha... His act could be called 'How NOT to use telekinesis.'

Well roulette is the stupidest game to play in a casino besides slots. Poker/Black jack is easier to "cheat".

There are 4 reasons that would explain why Tripp lost at the roulette.

1) He hasn't practiced enough yet.

2) He got nervous and thought that people would notice something fishy going on.

3) He won at one time on his own, then thought that he could win more without using his powers, but like other Vegas gamblers, lost their money thinking "I'll get it the next time...I'll get it the next time...."

And the most likely reason of them all:

4) Tripp wasn't wearing a fancy-shmancy 007 Casino Royale tuxedo with a hot girl(either Coco or Proxy) in a stunning dress. This would be where Coco would need to show up with her Marylin Monroe dress and casually stand above an AC vent when it goes off.

By the way, has anyone seen the new ERB with Marylin Monroe and Cleopatra?

i wonder why poe didn't suggest the poker-thing earlier. this would totally work without tripp's telekinetic abilites after all.
but maybe his powers are already beginning to corrupt tripp, and he would've never agreed to cheating in the casino before?

Another way of using that power

Assuming that it is really Tripp that's doing it -- if he can't do it "right" he could use it as part of a comedy act?
