Seems simple, but sounds stupid, at least to me. There's gonna be 100 angles from 100 cameras all looking at your hands/shuffle if you deal out a $160k bad beat. You'd have to be one hell of a pro to not get caught, which there probably are some out there that do so.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

They do everyday. They just don't get caught. I find people who think the world is remotely fair humorous.

Criminals are dumb. Today I was contracted to audit a companies billing. I found that an employee stole 278k over the last 90 days when their revenue was only 420k. I mean gee they are going to notice that. She could have stolen 50k and might have gotten away with it.

It's always tempting in a small company to overlook financial controls. If you are an owner and you have a bookkeeper with signing and/or banking authority, I would be checking account activities daily and asking for bank recons every period.

In the case of that amount of theft, I always wonder if the bookkeeper just cashes the checks that customer sends and then tells the owner that the company hasn't paid.

Yikes.
