I am glad that they have caught this man and i hope that Matt Kirk gets all his money back. I would never keep so much money at home and i hope that he cashes his chips in from now on

If he is cashing his chips from now on he will have much more money at home. I am not sure how did you mean what you wrote.

Well this sucks but it was bound to happen for poker players or anyone who have monies in their pockets and people knows about it, because people are greedy and will always looks to steal at the first opportunity or plan it then he is mad, so be careful and if you a poker pro be way and keep your cash safe and use credit cards or something. Cheers bad for him hope he gets his casino chips back , cheers peace out!

got what he deserved
didnt know you could just walk to any casino and cash chips
without even asking how you got them
lot poker pros keep chips
since they know no point if cashing them if you gonna play
i dont agree with doubletop777
if he did cash his winnings , then this guy would have been free now
one last thing , he broke to an apartment
how come no one caught him or saw him

I think he means he would keep his money more secure.It is probably better to keep money in a bank but I think poker players do have to have their money readily available and may not keep very sociable hours.
Where there is money there are people who want to take it away from you.

What an ungrateful ex he had there. LOL! But why would they beat him? Why can't they go to break in when he wasn't at home?

Yes...I remember that,recently you probably saw that in England a well known cash player was actually murdered and robbed for his money.I think if you in the poker world you are crazy if you get mixed up with the seedier side of the game,there is always some scumbag looking for easy targets.
