Nah, that was Nick Papageorgio. Close though :).


Err, I didn't get it quite right. Here's a good picture though.

These casinos don't notice a 60k theft and at the same time fight with players over a $10 bet. Where is logic?

Actually they did notice it, hence the arrests.

I do wonder however how much more clever would they have been to elude the computers and surveillance. Multiple payees? More than one player at the table when overpaying one of them?

Ah, the Westward Ho in the background. I might be the only person in America that misses that place.

It's much harder to spot a tree that is rotting from within until it is too late.

Spot on! Seen HL rooms brought to a screeching halt over say a one unit wager (might be a black chip or a purple) but none the less all in proportion to the table's wagers. Huge stacks of chips and some argument over a trivial amount. All in all, it is the quality and the experience of the dealer combined with the floor person how it escalates. The best ones will just cure the situation to the players satisfaction and be on with the game. I have seen a half dozen players get up and cash out over things also. I got to the point when it happens and usually at least once per night, I just sit back and watch like seeing a sitcom unfolding.
Bac79=Hazardous Material and Chemical person correcting other's mistakes. Non AP'er, I can't count cards, low intelligence. Sprinkles magical dust on the cards. Has a lucky monkey. Baby also has a green one. Sum it up: "It's okay just blame me, it's all my fault"! ( No one believes me--so I chose to stop posting)

So when did this really happen? The caption to the mug shots in the article says, "They were arrested Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2015."

Do any of you have that day/date combination on your calendars?

i assure you it was much more then 60k, just probably only were able to track the 60, I have seen him playing baccarat over the course of 2 years going there at least 5 times- he was only there on big weekends when other big players where in town, not that there is any connection whatsoever but whenever don johnson was in town he was there- maybe gets less attention- but I knew something was up
The bet will not be paid- not now not ever

It's part of the moral fiber decay that often affects dealers.
