Posted on Thursday, October 13, 2016 by "T".
Over 30 marked decks were confiscated by police when a man claimed he got cheated from a poker game in China. The idea of cheating in a card game using contact lenses is not new as portrayed in the Chinese film "God of Gamblers."

Hats off to the local police who promptly initiated the investigation and subsequently successfully captured the perpetrators.
God of Gamblers? I don't think I have ever watched that movie before.

This sounds like something out of a James Bond film and it really is fascinating the lengths some people will go to to make money. I am glad that these people were caught

Something tells me that this fellow isnt the first one. They must have done it more times,
but at the end they got caught.
I wonder what they will be able to do in a few years with the technology,
to take advantage of the unsuspected players.

as all great tales this one has come to an end and as the ending goes... they lived happily ever after- in jail...
however doesn't your grandma ever teach you that playing cards with unknown men in unknown places is a risky business?

Even without the lenses - if you get pokered out of a nice sizeable sum and everybody else seemed to doing okay at the table on the same night then its probably you just either a shite of a player or simply had a bad night or you just got conned by the triad like this fella from China.
How about all of the three together?

So...as usual, the eyes have it! It's always in the eyes. Always make sure you check out your opponents eyes, or even. The lovely ladies that are checking you out. It's always in the eyes and if you can make eye contact then you will know what I mean. Next time, focus on the eyes and see what you think?

Next time everybody will be wearing sunglasses connected to the internet. I will only play poker with blind people from now on.

The article did not say how the cards were marked and how the perpetrators were able to see the marks because of the contact lenses.

I wonder, is it something that uses UV light to make something glow in the dark? Kind of like blood on crime scenes and stuff like that.

Anyways, they could have probably did it without being caught if they left earlier Blink
