Cheaters Used Special Contact Lenses to View Marked Cards

Tags: Chinese poker, lenses, poker cheating.
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."

This idea is exactly what four Chinese cheaters pulled off in a poker game wherein they used special contact lenses to dupe an unsuspecting player. Chinese authorities have apprehended the alleged scammers who have been accused of using marked cards and special contact lenses to cheat more than $10,000 from their victim in a poker game.

The game was held in a hotel in Dali City, China. The suspects lured the complainant, identified only as Feng, on the pretense of assisting him in finding clients for his pesticide company. The five played poker wherein the four allegedly conspired to cheat their victim.

Round after round, the group managed to outplay Feng. By the time the victim decided to quit the game, he had already lost a significant amount of money. It was only after leaving the game that Feng suspected he was cheated.

Feng filed a complaint with the local police who enacted the investigation. Evidently, the suspects failed to abandon the scene as authorities found them in that very same room.

The police found 30 decks of marked cards along with special contact lenses that allowed the wearer of the lenses to identify cards the victim was holding, which he then signaled to his fellow cheats.

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?

Así viene la cosa en febrero y el acumulado del año, es increíble que he evaporado todas las ganancias (se han esfumado en pagos, apuestas deportivas y lujos innecesarios, estoy en bancarota... una vez mas. Solo dispongo de algunos dolares en el cajero, producto de mis amistades (que confian en este bobo), el problema no es lo mucho o poco que pueda tener, sino que toda la vida ha sido mi cancer (a pesar de tener ganancias decentes) estar short de banca y levanto en poco tiempo, debido a la mala administración...
