Love to read these gambling stories.

The guy obviously had pretty deep pockets, so a 14K loss means little or nothing to him.

Life is short: study, work, love, gamble, die.

Yea and the best at slandering you to every other casino in the area. Word of advice, don't play rated there. When it comes to them, I live by the motto "I will have my revenge, in this life or the next."


You planning something like a oceans 11,gather up the crew, count me in. :)

.......something else happens.

Playing BJ in a party pit at a local joint. Table is a 10-1000 table. No purple in the tray. Guy comes to the table and buys for 4K. Has at least 20K behind. Takes a seat and throws down 800. Starts winning. Not long and he's up 3K.

Starts getting into it. Then he throws out 200 for the dealer and 100 to myself and the other 2 guys at the table. Casino fills 20 purple. While filling guy in seat 4 is dubbed the super hero, guy to his left is named the innocent bystander, dealer is the hot chick, I am bequeathed the title of villain.

Play commences. Guy starts flat betting table max. He catches his fair share of good hands. Dealer is running bad. He's tossing chips to everyone based on his interpretation of events related to a comic book. He's tipping the dealer a 100 every other hand. She's about ready to orgasm as they keep their own. Casino brings another 20 purple.

Play commences and guy hits some nice doubles and a couple of naturals. Pit is all over the action. Fist bumping by the dealer becomes not allowed. Casino bringing out a 30K fill. Guy dubs the pit boss super villain for not allowing fist bumping by the dealer.

Play commences big player starts to turn down after reaching about 15k and giving dealer at least 1500 and I had 400 from him. He churns around over the course of the next half hour and busts out. He would have been even if not for dealer tips and giving us at the table money for stupid stuff related to his storyline. Thought to myself, well it was good while it lasted.

Out comes 10K and guy rebuys. Goes to 2 hands and winds up on another tear. Splits, doubles, naturals you name it and he's getting it. Guy is throwing chips all over the place. If the pit boss gets to close he blows smoke in the "super villain's" direction. He's mad that he can't fist bump. Casino starts sweating the action. There are now 2 additional pit critters.

Original dealer returns from a break and you could see the envy from the relief dealer even though she got at least 300 in her box. Guy was giving more to the table and betting on top of our spots, with our permission of course, during his epic run. I forgot about the game and just tried to keep the guy entertained flat betting 50 because sometime he would double it if the villain was in play. I'm up over 1500 at this point. I had 350 or so in front of me when he initially arrived.

Casino bring out another fill 20K and shuts table to others and says we can play as long as we want but will close after we all leave. Guy has close to 25K at this point after giving away at least 5K in tips and rewards. This will be the highest chip count guy will see all night.

The shenanigans continued for 2 more hours. At times the donating money and tips would slow but remained pretty steady all the way to the very bitter end. Dude left busted without rebuying and a big old smile on his face down 14K. I finished up 2800. Main dealer had to get another toke box, as this places were pretty small.



was it this guy?

All night I had just been sloppy drunk giving away hundred dollar tips left and right. I may have tipped close to $1500 that night."

No.... This was an off strip property with a party pit. They didn't even have purple in the rack when the guy first sat down. Plus this guy appeared to have plenty. He wasn't drunk at all.

Revenge like how?


Oh sooner or later I'll find a way to get some money out of them for what they did to me, legally of course. I have a long memory.

I was playing Ultimate Texas Holdíem in a Philly area casino a few months ago. As usual, as soon as I start playing, constant ridicule from the ploppies about not playing the trips bet. There were two people on the other side betting decent money. About 20 minutes later one of them hits a royal. Surprisingly a quick check by the pit and a 2 minute call to surveillance and he got his payout, about $10k or so. The guy is completely ecstatic. I guess he probably threw the dealer a couple hundred and then gave everyone at the table a black chip. Obviously I appreciate the gesture. Iím really the type that doesnít want anything for free and would much prefer to earn it. Normally I would refuse but thought that would seem rude so at everyoneís suggestion I started using that money to play the trips. I hit a few hands and threw back a green chip when the lady had me convinced that the side bet is where the money is.

Anyways the whole time Iím thinking that the payout was very quick and was wondering why they didnít take taxes out. Of course I didnít say anything. The guy leaves to cash out for a little bit and comes back to play some more. He whips out his wad of $100ís and starts laying it on the table and says yea they want me to pay the taxes. I guess he gave back about $3000. Wow if they did that to me, I would have gotten those chips and ran out of there.

Table bets with over 300-1 odds and $1200 get taxed automatically, similar to a VP win over $1200. Then again those figures are pending states, I think, so I'm not sure if they're considered universal. I believe you HAVE to get one of the two withheld automatically (state/federal). I think you can waive one, but you'll have to pay for it later when tax season comes.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

You can ask for fed tax to be withheld if you'd like. Makes it easier when filing taxes, probably. Not that I recommend it. Also if you're from Canada or at least not from USA, the fed tax is mandatory. You can always file later to try to get it back.

I believe it's 300 to1 or more and $600 and has satisfy both requirements.
