Poker player Scott Montgomery robbed at Bellagio

In a bizarre series of tweets, former November Niner Scott Montgomery detailed a hair-raising incident where he was robbed at knife-point in a Bellagio bathroom. Montgomery gave the robber the $2,000 he had in his wallet and was unharmed. His Tweet on the incident stated: “Got mugged today at Bellagio. Black guy pulled a knife on me in the restroom. I gave him the $2k in my wallet and he left.”

Montgomery seemed less than impressed with Bellagio security’s assistance in the matter. Tweeting , “I called security, but they took like 15 mins so they didn’t catch him. They are useless twits. Didn’t even ask me to look at camera footage.”

This is the second high-profile poker player that has been the victim of a robbery at the Bellagio: Way back in 2004, shortly after his WSOP Main Event win, Greg Raymer was able to fight-off two would-be robbers as he entered his hotel room at the Bellagio.

Montgomery was a member of the 2008 World Series of Poker final table, and has had a string of success in the poker world since, with over $3.6 million in career earnings and even winning his first WSOP bracelet in 2010. He is also currently dating fellow poker pro Annette Obrestad.
