Interesting. Apparently he isn't a very good cheat. According to the article, he is wanted in Louisiana and has previous convictions for casino cheating in Reno, Las Vegas, and Iowa. He may want to consider a new line of work.

This sounds like an episode of the old NBC "Las Vegas" show where the same thing happened. Is this a common type scam that shows up from time to time?

And when the first caveman carved the first deck of cards from rocks, another caveman with squinty eyes was in the corner mixing ash from the fire with water from the stream and experimenting.
