I'm completely disgusted with your "friend" looking to cheat his "friends" at his home game. Lots of people get together for home games, and they mostly trust each other to let the cards or dice do the talking while they enjoy themselves. Your "friend" is the kind that causes home games to be illegal. Wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit to hear he'd been sliced up for his trouble.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Well, it's not really his friends. He runs the game for under 21s to play (he lives in vegas, anyone who's over 21 can just go to 100+ casinos to play). It's not a "home game" in the sense of a bunch of people who know each other playing together. I only call it a home game because it's being run out of a house.

He's been arrested before for running an illegal poker game. He's also done time for assault.

This is a guy I paid $100 to spill a drink on someone at a table game (with the obvious risk of getting into a fist fight). He's a scumbag, plain and simple. No delusion here on who he is.

You paying a guy to spill a drink on someone doesn't make you any less of a scumbag. It just makes you a scum bag with no balls.

I've done it before when I wasn't needed to play the game. But I can't do it and then take the seat because it makes it too transparent what just happened.

When a seat's worth $2000+ / hour to us, and some loser is sitting there playing $10 / hand all shift, we'll do what we need to in order to get them out of that seat.

When I've done it though, there's never been an incident. I make it look like an accident (my tactic is usually to walk with my phone in 1 hand, drink in the other, then walk right into them while I'm staring at my phone), then apologize profusely and offer to pay for their shirt, etc. FWIW, this tactic is listed in grosjean's book on ways to get a ploppy out of a seat.

I also once paid a hooker to get a guy off a game. No idea what happened afterwards, but my agreement with her was she had to get the guy to leave the game.

And I could care less about the suckers he rips off, because frankly, they deserve it for going to an illegal game.



People holding thoughts like this is what really bothers me about the world. Its disturbing to hear you say they deserve to be ripped off. Businesses should treat their customers well. Otherwise the business doesnt deserve those customers. The legality of the business is irrelevant.

Even you admit he is a scumbag. So, why are you helping him? What does that make you?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I'm no saint. My reasons for helping him are purely self interest. It's useful knowing a guy who's willing to get 86ed from casinos and risk getting into a fight for pay.

That would be great. If I had concrete info, I'd turn him in.

I'm talking about a casino table game. When there's a hole carding or other opportunity at it.
