Luke "FullFlush" Schwartz has been banned 2 times from all casinos in the United Kingdom. First time he got banned was when he refused to take of his hat, second time was recently, then he refused to pay for a sandwich during EPT in London. Even though he has been banned 2 times, he always seems to know the right people to help him sort everything out and abolish the ban. This time, however, he only got his exemption to play in PartyPoker's World Open V.

When Luke arrived at the Palm Beach Casino in Mayfair he was stopped by the receptionist who claimed that his banned from the casino. Luke got really angry and yelled at the poor receptionist who didn't have a clue that he had dispense to play in the tournament. After a while Luke got to speak to the casino management and they decided to let him play in the tournament on one condition - that their security team were allowed to keep an eye on him to make sure that he behaved.
