The dealers probably had some kinda deal with him as they used to do with floor managers etc. about sharing a percentage of their tips, though on tournaments it's a bit tricky to gather those from the winners - and even though he thought he was entitled for a kickback, the casino did not agreed.

It's everywhere! There was a similar incident at another casino.

According to Clark County records in Nevada, poker industry veteran C********** C*****, who served as the poker room manager at Treasure Island, was arrested on Dec. 12, 2014 for felony theft of $650-$3,500.

Case No. 1*******X does not go into detail, but according to Poker Fraud Alert, a website established Todd “Dan Druff” Witteles to guard against the "scumbags and criminals" that look to cheat the poker world, a Treasure Island employee alleges C***** was arrested for stealing jackpot money via a football pool.

"C********** C***** is no longer employed by Treasure Island," said Treasure Island Senior Vice President of Communications Michelle Knoll. "We have no further comment as we do not discuss personnel matters with the press."
