wonder if a few sharp poker players have

Someone who thinks that way is NEVER a "sharp poker player." Scumbags like that do exist, I'm unfortunately acquainted with a few, and such sleazy gutter dwelling dirtball individuals are always chronic losers.

What a "sharp poker player" does is bring what he may think he sees to the attention of the dealer and/or floor, so they can look at it and decide if they need to correct it before it is used again.

You might be surprised how some of the old time greats got their start.

Ah yes, I'd be surprised, and AxelWolf would surely know all about it, as always, even if he can't spell it and use it in a sentence. From his expert poker play in places that rarely have poker games. Tell us more, by all means. We await your instruction on the matter, from your deep trove of knowledge of poker greats.

I have no cue what you mean about my play in places that don't have poker rooms???

Do some digging and you can come to your own concussions.

I do have one name for you. Russ Hamilton.

Fine, Russ Hamilton is indeed a notorious thief, proven beyond doubt 6-7 yrs. ago, admitted by him 2 yrs. ago, and known to all, by ripping-off people online through the rigged software at UltimateBet along with the rest of the den of thieves that ran UB. He is also neither "old-time" nor have I ever before heard him described as a "poker great" but I guess that's in the eye of the beholder. Last I heard of him he was still trying to play live occasionally in places that would let him, and having a hard time finding places where he could.

UltimateBet, by the way, was "regulated" and very much intertwined with the supposed "Kahnawake Gaming Commission" which is a phony "tribal" outfit that also is the supposed "regulatory" body for other more current online enterprises. Some inquisitive people here might like to note that fact and take notice of where and with whom any online outfit they are thinking of getting involved with has their fictional location.

There are little teams of cheats from time to time in live poker rooms around Las Vegas. Not common, but they do exist. For a while. I was tangentially involved in seeing to it that one of them was busted. They have easier ways of knowing what cards are in play. Haven't yet encountered or heard of one that was very good at that, or much of anything.

I heard that as well, several years ago, like about 5 yrs. There was a story about him getting verbally torn a new one when trying to play at Gulfstream, and him melting down into a simmering mess of "f*yous & c*sucking mudderf*ers." I think it was more recently, but not within the last 2 years, that I was told about him trying to play at MGM Las Vegas, and not being allowed to. Neither of those accounts are first hand things that I saw myself, just what I recall of what I've been told from sources that I choose to think are trustworthy.

Russ was a WSOP winner and was respected by many, even in the BJ circles, Ill agree he wasn't a great player, but i'm not just referring to him, I know what he was outed for was online, but Ill bet there was live game cheating as well.

Ps I still am lost about what you meant about the no poker rooms comment?

Well Axel, last time you chose to describe me as "stupid" and clueless about how poker should really be played & minimum expectations for appropriate (and intelligently courteous toward recreational players) behavior at the table, you cited your great escapades "tilting" people at HardRock Las Vegas poker room for evidence of your poker prowess. HardRock struggles to get and keep a table going, never has had any significant poker business, and has been practically non-existent since the day it opened. Which is why they are not even in that room, and haven't been for quite a long while.

I would have to think they get them a little cheaper than that if they are bought in bulk. If not, holy cow.



No casino pays that price. Most Casinos buy a year or two of cards at a time. Depending on the brand it might be anywhere from about $1 a deck at the bottom end and I've seen up to around $7 a deck I think for top end cards.
