Interesting reading when bored. Many are known cheats that have become semi-famous while others are known organized crime family members with well known last names. Still others are just down on their luck cheaters and thieves. From the looks of some of these dates and pictures, many have probably passed by now.

"On January 27, 2005, Mr. Ho was arrested for removing a $20 voucher from an Atlantic City slot machine. On February 3, 2005, Mr. Ho pled guilty to Theft by Unlawful Taking and was sentenced to a term of imprisonment for 30 days, which was suspended, and fined $200."

Unlawful Taking? That's a law?

Well, yes.

If it were a wallet or a purse left in a waiting room, would you want whoever found it to help themself to the contents?

It seems a bit silly for a $20 voucher, but if there's a business that has to enforce these things, it's a casino.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

Suleimann Ali Muhammed:



In March 1979, Muhammed past-posted a $1 bet at the Big Six Wheel. And do you know what happened next?

HE DID IT AGAIN!

I was so pissed a few years ago when I found a bundle of cash with $3,000 in it on the casino floor, that I knew of this law. As soon as I picked up the cash, the words Theft By Taking flashed in my head. Otherwise I probably would have kept the money. But knowing of the law and the cameras in the ceiling, I turned it into security. It was claimed by the rightful owner within 30 minutes and he didn't give me a dime for finding it.

The funniest part is so few people know the law. You could literally be arrested for picking up a $5 chip off the carpet. It's insane and completely lacking of common sense.

Arrested twice in Atlantic City casinos, between 2008 and 2011.

I thought card counting was legal in New Jersey.

But I must say, that's one hell of a disguise. It looks nothing like him.
