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?

from first days of gambling till now we will have cheating,so I dont get suprised when I read that somebody is caught or that people new way how to get money from casinos or people!so new ways of cheating will come in years and who know what will be!

How about all of the three together?
