Oh, wait...change "straight flush" to "full house," and that's what happened to me three years or so ago at Silverton.
I would bet that that has happened.Quote: ThenWhatHappens
We were playing Blackjack late one evening at the Hilton, when it was still the Hilton. Guy walks up, tall guy with a large build, wearing a baseball cap. Drops a beer in the cup holder and sits down. Buys in and we all resume playing. Floor manager takes notice and ask him for his ID. Without hesitation he goes to his wallet and hands it over, saying "I just turned 21 an hour ago." Floor manager looks at his ID, then at her watch, then says "Yes you did, in Florida, but in Nevada you're still 20 for another 45 minutes." She reached across the table and picked up his beer. They then reversed out his buy in and walked him to the cage.
I don't know if this counts as an urban legend, but I was with a friend once and she won at the three shell game on a Manhattan street corner.... twice in a row. No, she wasn't a shill, and she still lost money overall. I thought those guys never let you win, but apparently it happens.
P.S. I knew it was a scam from the get-go, but she had put money down before I could stop her.
Some guys are playing craps at Caesars.
A random roller is shooting, and rolls 18 yo's in a row.
The players see it unfold, but none of them bet any money on the eleven.
No proof, alas: so it's just a legend.
I think it is a classic "legend" worth retelling.
No advocacy on this one, Babs!
