I ran across this piece of advice on Yahoo Answers. The asker posed the question:
Do you have any advice on playing poker?
I have played a lot of internet poker as well as with the Amateur Poker League but it has never been for real money. Always just chips. Tomorrow night I’m probably going to be playing for real. Any tips?
Here’s one of the answers:
remember casinos use shills , marked cards, trick dealers and will treathen your life if you win to much to often. casinos are very dangeras places ,if your girlfriend is pretty she may be drug-ed and within a week she will be working in a whore house with no knowledge of how it happened.
the people you watch on TV are all friends and make side deals most of the games are just for show
gaming commissions do nothing because the states need the money
advice ,play small, leave early be glad if you survive the mob is very real,
First off, I try to avoid taking advice from people who don’t know how to use capitalization or know the difference between “to” and “too” but you have to admit that is some scary advice. I’ve probably lost 15 or 20 girlfriends in casinos before. I always thought they grew tired of me but now I know they were all drugged and working in a whorehouse.
Better yet, he lists as his source of this information:
25 years of experiance in the casino industry
How much you wanna bet this guy also thinks online poker is rigged?
