Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 by "T".
First things first (for those who don't know the story already). On January 18th the New Jersey Department of Gaming Enforcement cancelled the opening event ($2 million guarantee prizeopool) of the 2014 Borgata Winter Poker Open after concluding that someone had used a significant number of counterfeit chips in the tournament.

I find it funny that many people still trying to rig the system when the system is already rigged. I dont mean this particular tourey I mean Vegas and Atlantic City of course. They listen everybody and record everything in every small corner of their casinos (im not sure they didnt have something in the rooms too), they could see if a fly is farted in high definition yet some brave idiot always try to play them out.

I liked that guy too back in a month or two who was playing with infrared sensible contact lenses.

Haha maybe he read too much about poker and become obsessed with it and wanted to emulate those poker legends that you can see on the internet. He wanted to get fame in a bad way. Anyway glad he got caught at least we have some hope in the police!

I'm glad he was caught. Looks like a total scumbag ruining an already down looked on community, if poker already didn't have bad enough of a rep in the US.

Haha what an idiot. The hilarious thing is that he only won 6800 buckaroos after all that effort. Presumably making the counterfeit chips took him some effort, and he then needed a plumbing video from youtube to figure out how to stick the spare chips in there. The other good thing, its another crazy story from the world of poker.

The bad side is that everyone involved in the tourney can't be safe in their winnings and they didn't win them 'correctly' as there was bogus chip amounts in play which might have effected the tourney a lot or a little, who knows. Organisers must be pissed. But then they need to do more checks more often evidently.

Some people will go to any lengths just to try and get an edge and i'm glad this person has been caught. I only hope that others will be be deterred from cheating but i seriously doubt it.

This is a major public problem for live organizers and i guess it's a good point for all that fight to open the online gambling market to US players.

I already knew that Atlantic registered pretty big loses due the lack of interest and players, this is another big image problem.
