Good point. In my 33 years casino gambling I've only twice seen a drunk made to quit playing. In both cases, the players were extremely drunk.



You'd see it a lot more in WA, where it's illegal to let an intoxicated person gamble.

Lot of competing ideas here. If the casino wants (as they all do) drunk patrons who play poorly, then they must also cater to that crowd. In the same tone if the guy was being drunk/stoned and NICE about it all that would instantly lead me to help him... however if he was an annoying abnoxious idiot betting near table min, I'm also fine with him leaving if he doesn't have a legit case.

I'd like to ask the OP, since it sounds like he was at the table and I'm sure noticed this happen... What happened on his turn? Do YOU believe he correctly signaled hit? That's what it would come down to for me if I actually saw the situation. If I felt he did hit, or even that it was "unclear" then I think it's on the dealer to clarify. I think that's literally part of their job if the signal is unclear (which the PB came back and said). So at this point can't back the cards up, I'd give him a 1 time warning and rule his hand "no action" and I'd also ask the dealer to ensure the players give clear and concise signals so this doesn't happen again. If the guy gets any more unruly or tries this again, I'd probably bounce him.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Many years ago I was sitting at a BJ table with O.J. Simpson. He was so drunk they finally made him leave the table.

I've seen several drunks on shoot to win craps. It's not a pretty scene. One tried talking to me...I kind of just put my hand up "dude, I don't need the buffalo talk". They don't make sense. I'll watch from afar because sometimes it can be entertaining....but I'm certainly not going to be engaging them. My only hope is they aren't locals getting in their vehicle. I suspect some are.

They generally lose everything within a few minutes with stupid betting.

Before they thought he'd allegedly kill someone, right?

I think he ignored his cards and din't make a clear signal. While not part of her job the dealer should have double checked him but maybe she was fed up with him. I caught it at the time because it was odd but didn't say anything because I was sick of the guy. I'm sure that you've been at tables where you were hoping someone lost just so they'd go away.

Yes, it was probably around 1992. I was playing at the Tropicanaand O.J. was at the same table as Dwight Clark. Dwight was trying to convince him to leave but O.J. was so drunk that he kept falling asleep at the table and the dealer would have to wake him to play his cards.
