New Jersey resident Thom-Matthew Kho is suing Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas for more than $10,000 in damages! Kho claims that the casino took about $3,600 from him when they noticed he counted cards at a blackjack table; he was then handcuffed and taken to a private room after refusing to give the casino his identification.

"Plaintiff, while in the security office, was physically searched against his will, his wallet unconsensually removed from his pocket and rifled, his picture taken against his will ... a copy of his driver's license taken against his will, and held in handcuffs against his will," the lawsuit states.

In addition, the lawsuit claims that Kho suffered physical injuries, emotional distress and "destruction of his vacation to Las Vegas." Full story here.

That sounds a bit harsh as the casinos regularly encourage the high rollers to play blackjack when they openly admit to card counting and I am sure they still make decent money from the bad card counters.

Or they could just shuffle the damn deck more times...

well there is a thin line between keeping blackjack sharks at the tables and still keeping the table profitable. shuffle decks more often, add a few rules here and there which increase house edge and in no time you are left with small timers at the tables... do the opposite and you risk of being raped through all openings.

Yeah this is what happens in casino most of the time when you win or when you count but it is still legal to count as you are using your mind and brain and not some sophisticated technology to cheat, you are just there by yourself counting and if you are able so be it , just banned him but dont do some bad shit like stealing and doing and taking picture illegally more players should do like that and casino will one day hopefully stops doing it!

I wonder if the casinos took away all the gamblers at the blackjack table who believed they had some kind of system or a formula on how to card count if they would even make a profit?
I think card counting is just the same as a goalkeeper keeping stats on their opposing strikers etc also if you notice 6 picture cards in a row is that classed as counting?
