Poker pro arrested with 25 pounds of marijuana

Tags: al krux, arrested, drugs, marijuana, police.
Posted on 02 November 2011 by "T".

The American poker player Al Krux was recently arrested due to drug possession after the police found 25 pounds of marijuana in his car. Also his son Adam was arrested with almost 15 pounds of marijuana, and at his home the police also found 90 marijuana plants. The police decided to take a closer look at Al Krux and his son after that neighbors had contacted them regarding "suspicious activity" going on in Krux's house. In total, Krux and his son had drugs with a street value of about 140-150k euro. But instead of enjoying that money they can now expect to spend many years in prison.

About Al Krux
Al Krux, 68, is an American poker pro based near Syracuse, New York. Before he turned pro, Krux was a diamond merchant. He also once consulted Native Amercians about casinos and poker rooms. Krux has made it to 3 WSOP Main Event final tables (6th in 1990, 5th in 1994 and 6th in 2004) and also won a WSOP bracelet in the 1996 $1,5000 PLH. As of 2010, his total live tournament winnings exceed $1,400,000. His 12 cashes at the WSOP accounts for $1,178,820 of those winnings.

Krux family kruxed by the police. I wonder if what they were smoking helped Al somehow in his poker strategy. Many should already tried to play online under the effect of it, but does it really works? Or makes you laugh so much about a donk play that you cant ever reestablish concentration to the rest of the game? I think its more the second...
 elfmafia02/11/2011 13:25:30 GMT
weed will make you focus on whatever is in front of you me and my kick boxing trainer both partake in a few smokes before a heavy session of sparring and bag work and yeah it just gives you tunnel vision which is good for poker i guess and yeah laughing at idiots making crazy bets makes for a fun table

2nd poker idiot this year, rule No.1 don't shit in your own back yard.
Why not rent a house and stay away, automate, day 1 plant, day 90 chop and run.
 elfmafia02/11/2011 19:23:33 GMT
they shouldn't have had to do anything its a stupid law based from lies and deceit

btw 40pounds of weed wouldn't cost anybody 150k euro

40pounds is what 640 ounces? or something close to that
at todays rate the highest you'd expect to pay for that amount is £6400 anything more than 100 an oz in bulk is insane

and as for the 90 plants we can't even speculate on how much they are worth as we dont know what strain they are or how much they yield or even how old they are
 SuperNoob02/11/2011 20:30:44 GMT
now he'll play in WPPT - world prison poker tournament, lmao
was workin like an amateur anyway, lesson learnt i guess

@elfmafia that 140 k price might be according to US rates.
 elfmafia02/11/2011 23:39:31 GMT

6400$ for 40 POUNDS of weed? maybe 64 000$ lol around here u can swingle maybe 4pounds at that price...average goin for 3-4$ a gram by quantity but if ur selling enough u can get it down 1.50$-2.50$ a gram.....at 2$ a gram for 40 pounds the least ud pay in canada is about 36 320$..if u can get it over there for 6400 everyone would be smuggling drugs
 elfmafia03/11/2011 16:02:17 GMT
lol thats what happens when you do math whilst high you forget the other 0 lol yeah i meant to say 64000 not 6400
it's still
 B1gfoot05/11/2011 11:31:29 GMT
I guess it would depend on what type he had too, solid p/g must be a lot different to green on the p/g.
Lucky it was in US, in the land down under that's a bout 8 trillion dollars worth and life in jail, the UK would be a first warning for personal and 3 points for bald tyres.
 elfmafia05/11/2011 14:47:22 GMT
nah dog my only offence to date i got a 12 month suspended sentence here for just 3.5 Oz of green (would have been 4 but i threw a handful down my neck hard to swallow in whole buds lol) all in 1 bag no little baggies no scales or nothing and the judge told me that if i had between 4 and 5 Oz i would have served a minimum 24 month sentence in big boy prison lol

my main excuse for having so much quantity was because i don't want to be associating with scum bag dealers so i go there once a month pick up and get smashed

lol i can't even get into america now
(tried last year for holiday got all the way to lax just to be interrogated for 5 hours and sent back home talk about some serious jet lag)



------------
oh and in the report in my local newspaper the police claimed my weed was worth £1000

what is a suspended sentence? Confused Confused

and why wont they let u in america?
 B1gfoot05/11/2011 15:19:00 GMT
suspended sentence - In this case 12 months, if he commits a crime within this period he goes straight to jail, does not pass go and does not collect 200...He will have to spend the remaining time keeping a firm grip of the soap, and I hear in Wales they use flaked soap, harder to pick up!

USA are stupid, as we already know, if you have a record then the US think by that person visiting they will cause a crime wave, so to prevent all these nasty people going there they must apply for a visa, then its OK.

 arsenej105/11/2011 15:23:20 GMT

the 2 reasons they gave me were because of my offence despite this being in lax where the shits pretty much legal that discussion lasted just under an hour

then they had pintouts of my former myspace account claiming i was using the site for drug trafficking (they showed 0 evidence of this)
the biggie that lasted 3 hours was because apparently i was "promoting violence towards americans" in these blogs which was crazy because all they showed me where a few blogs of me being critical of the whole 9/11 deal so they sent me packing and my friend was left all on her lonesome to wonder around LA Sad

oh to top it all off when i got back home nobody came to pick me up they all thought i was joking in my txts :|

wow
funny stuff checking your online accounts to find excuses Shock
 elfmafia05/11/2011 18:46:05 GMT
yeah private accounts at that but they hand printouts of pm's as well it was surreal

the only thing that pissed me off about thew whole situation was they could have told me way before i left my country that i wasn't getting in because i checked with the us embassy before spending a penny on booking the holiday they said i would be fine there would be no problem

so i spent my 2 years savings and bam i got the best holiday ever :|
 Noisecore06/11/2011 19:42:32 GMT
Don't see the problem, just move to my country and use the drug.
 elfmafia07/11/2011 01:55:01 GMT
you don't see a problem with getting a criminal record for enjoying your free time not harming anyone?
i'll never be able to get a decent job above minimum wage because of the record and i doubt i would get citizenship in nl or anywhere thats not a third world country now

also i did try moving there a few years ago but your women are too damn crazy, i lasted 4 months lol
 BeLLuM07/11/2011 09:09:20 GMT

I see a problem in that of course. But that was not what I was talking about, I wouldn't use weed if I was living in the UK and that's your own fault. Here it is legal though and then I would recommend using it, hehe. Big Smile
 rbdflyboy07/11/2011 10:13:42 GMT
Now in Canada, each exstacy pill your caught with is an attempted murder charge if they charge you with attempted or trafficing. 3 meals a day and all the sex you never wanted. Evil

Yea. In your country it is possible and legal =)

but in Germany sooo much smokers ))

 TheMachineQC23/12/2011 08:42:35 GMT
I've never heard of anyone hurting anybody because they smoked weed. Car accident, violence, falling asleep driving ect. I know a lot of people that smoke and they're mostly normal people with jobs... I even know people that you can't even tell the difference if they're high or not... It's just a plant after all.

Why is alcool okay and not weed? Alcool kills thousands of people every year. I never understood how they decide if a drug is legal or not.

They should focus on the people making crocodile drug in russia instead Blink
 wiggggy23/12/2011 09:06:34 GMT
I got caught with 7 ounces of green and got 3 months custodial sentence, but was the 2nd time i got caught with weed on my person (just a Quarter..7g the first time tho) But i had a conditional discharge for assault on me at the time, still judges seem to just pick punishments out of a randomizer IMO---- No i do not think this is big or clever, its only clever if u dont get caught!

They should just legalize it adn slam a tax on it and the country will be debt free in less then a year
 pochui23/12/2011 15:07:01 GMT
so that's how you become a poker pro- just have plenty of weed at the tables Thumbs up and suddenly card do seem to run great, beer flow freely Beer the whole world seems to be your friend Winner and millions are coming into your pockets Dollar great- off to grow some weed Wave
 MicroMachina23/12/2011 19:53:16 GMT
yeah, its small time where i live to get busted but he was dealing guaranteed and getting great money for it because of the tight laws.

 Greenmohave24/12/2011 04:47:19 GMT
Hilarious! That is reading your comments Mobsters, but the truth is , California has the prices jacked. At least anything of any quality. You know! White Widow, Kush, AK47 and all the other crazy strains that's been developed here in the past 10 years to compete with to win the Cannibas Cup. Anyway, there is some time when living in NY and getting caught, it's a joke! We all know you can get more messed up on booze then weed not that I take sides. Maybe our U.S. government could dig out of debt and stop some of the smuggling if they would legalize it, but why take the easy way out. Let's continue to use U.S. tax dollars to pay for outragious money for helicopters, agents, dogs, etc. then make ficticious stories about the street value. We all know weed isn't worth nothing if it doesn't have green, sticky, mature buds. I better stop before I write a book Good LUck to All!
 Fackinas24/12/2011 09:08:16 GMT
