Samuel McMaster Jr. was sentenced to twelve years in prison on April 1 for bilking $450,000 dollars from 23 investors in New Mexico. However, McMaster did get a chance to repay the investors at the casino tables. Why? Samuel McMaster is a pro poker player. In one of the stranger incidents in New Mexico judicial history, Judge Ross Sanchez allowed the pro gambler to attempt to pay back his investors by playing in poker tournaments.

Ha ha, best sentence ever. I should try to find out how he managed to eke out this offer? I wonder if it's more of a publicity stunt?

I definitely hope I can an establish a good enough poker record that I can dodge jail in the future with only poker skills. Better yet, maybe I can get a government grant to play poker . . .

I'm totally going to say that this is not real either. Was this in a news paper, or some other quasi -reputable source other than the interwebz? Serious, 99% of the stuff you hear on the 'net is just heresay or outright lies. Just look at the whole Full Tilt situation as an example of this.

If, for some god awful reason, it's true it just goes to show just how fucked up the justice system truly is.

That is crazy man. The sentence is great even to me. I am a peacemaker.
The jury in this have great references and the lawyers has no intelligence at all.
If all this thind will be daily I will stuck my money into others pokets. Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

THe only better way to payout your sentence rather than by sitting in jail would be playing pro football for me. Right after that comes playing poker. Ah man, I think I am even kinda jealous O_O
