The edited-for-broadcast version of his infamous run, as seen on GSN’s “50 Greatest Game Shows”
ED NEVER STOOD A CHANCE
He husseled them. You got to admire a man who has so much faith in his technique that he has the balls to hussel a game show
Peter: “We’re gonna have Big Bucks today, I can feel it!”
Me: Peter, I think that’s a VERY Big understatement on this episode.
Michael knew how the system worked. The pattern was tile 2, tile 12, tile 1, tile 9, then tile 4 which was the tile he would always win on because it never had a whammy on it. The tiles don’t have numbers on them but just number them from the top left corner across and around and you will see how it works.
The system was not random, it was all based on patterns. He just memorised the patterns. That is how he did it.
I read about Michael in a book about forgotten American Heros
I’ve seen these episodes dozens of times but I just now noticed something. Pause at 3:35 and look up at square 4. $3000 (or possibly $4000) + ONE SPIN is still there. Square 2 is showing something. By the time Michael tells us that FDR is on the $50 bill, the board is clear.
This story has intrigued me for a long time, but I hadn’t actually seen the episode until now. Thanks for the upload.
ok hes off a bad start, so what but he over $100,000 in the 2nd round so yeah
cdcnyy, what do you mean 2-12-etc? What pattern did he use? There aren’t numbers up there and it certainly isn’t seconds. Also, what did Peter mean about Ed buying e cup brassiers?
Coincidence, not irony.
RIP Michael Larson (throat cancer, May 10, 1949 – February 16, 1999) and Peter Tomarken, Host, (Private Plane crash, December 7, 1942 – March 13, 2006)
0:13 Pool table! XD
Ok, so this guy said 50-dollar bill and spun a Whammy. No big deal…yet.
1:25 irony, “we got big bucks today i can feel it.”
the broad getting 10 spins was also a 1st
michael is a legend
“hopefully you won’t OD on money”
aww poor him. i was embarassed for him
This guy went crazy and started taking his money out of the bank (over $40,000) every single day in ALL SINGLES, and then redeposit it, just to take it out again the next day. He was trying to win a radio contest where they gave a dollar bills serial # every day and if you had the bill you won a prize. He left his 40,000 singles in a bag in his house one day and it was stolen leaving him penniless. He died while on the run from the FBI because of a lottery scheme he was involved in. Google him.
And to think, the whole time he knows the other players are f***ed, lol.
lol michael’s cracking me up. everyone’s thinking “boy this guys retarded” after the FDR question…. LOL!!! he will PWN them. funny man. Icecream truck driver? wt!!!!
look how fast there clapping at 40 seconds .they look like a bunch of monkeys
Oh yes he did! But he was the only one who knew.
LMFAO “50 dollar bill”
YOU ARE A LEGEND MICHEAL!!!!!!!
