Bellagio accused of using marked cards in poker games
If you think that cheating in poker is limited to online poker, and elaborate schemes like the current “Girah”, “junglemna12”, “DogisHead” scandal unfolding on 2+2, think again; marked cards, collusion, chip-dumping, and all manner of nefarious dealings are still a problem on the live poker scene –just look at last year’s Ali Tekintamgac cheating scandal that caused an overhaul to tournament rules regarding reporters.
The latest allegation came from Jimmy Fricke (of Fricke-Rolled fame) when the young poker pro took to his Twitter account to detail how the cards used at the Bellagio are almost all marked:
“Every single ace of spades is marked at Bellagio and no one gives a shit at all. I’ve pointed it out in $10ks (tournaments) and in big cash games and no one cares,”
Fellow poker player Ryan Rinker (@ryanrinker) responded with the following tweets:
“@jvfricke they have been for a year now. I said something too….got ignored! I hide my cards behind chips and the floor won’t penalize you”
“@jvfricke because they know they are marked. A lot of the kings are marked too”
When asked why it was the Ace of Spades which was marked, Fricke responded with: “They are all warped because of the way they are stored,”
You may recall that the World Series of Poker had similar issues with unintentionally marked cards this past summer, which was caused by a manufacturing defect from the card company.
There has been no word yet from the Bellagio on the matter.
