The confusion, Binion surmised, likely stemmed from Moss having participated in both games. However, there was never one between him and Dandolos at the Horseshoe, and the pair never did have a high-stakes heads-up battle in public.

In that area of the country that used to be such a nursery for card sharps and hustlers Moss credits being introduced to poker by gangs of cheaters when he was 10 years old.
Instead of using that knowledge to swingle high-rollers and inevitably end up on the wrong side of a pistol barrel he used his intimate knowledge of poker impropriety to guard back room games in Texas saloons.
In the early days of his career, it was customary to carry a concealed pistol and Moss was no different. While playing in one backroom game Johnny observed a peephole in the ceiling through which the house was spying on the cards they were holding.
Never one to oblige a cheater, Moss told them flat out that if they didn't send the spy down and plug up the hole, he would be forced to open fire in an upward fashion.
Calling what they thought to be a bluff on Moss's part, they played dumb, forcing Johnny to prove he was serious by firing a few rounds into the ceiling and wounding the man above.

Johnny is considered by many in the world of poker as one of the greatest professional poker players that ever walked the planet earth, and they are very correct on many grounds.
