No beuno. Had :kd::qd: in the CO, called a raise to 1500 by UTG. Blinds are 500/300 with 500 bb ante

Short stack shoves from blinds for close to 9k, raiser folds, I call, he flips over :ad::5d: and holds

Little bit later in same level EP limps for 500, MP makes it 2k, I call on button with :ac::6c: and limper calls

Flop :qc::8c::6d: bingo bango bongo! Original raiser bets 3500, we shove for 16k total. He snaps with :ah::ad:

Turn :8s:
River :qh:

Whomp whomp

Full 9-handed table? Flatting with A6s there seems a little loosey-goosey, unless PFRer has shown himself to be a total pushover.

Hand kinda played itself after that, of course.

The manager knows and I've spoken to a few other regs

What I find funny is that the manager says he'd love to ban them.

But a million of us have witnessed them signal raises, reported it, reported how they will raise people out with T862 and then run it twice with a buddy, and nothing is done.

There's a reason they don't play at the Hard Rock, they would get caught and booted.

I fucking KNEW it!!!! One of my buddies heard from another player the Cubans got caught. I just messaged the room manager to try and confirm details

If your gut says something is wrong then there probably is. I don't doubt that your raising of concerns to the floor manager a couple weeks ago made them keep an eye on them that resulted in this. Even I thought they were making some absolutely absurd hero calls and plays based on what you were saying.

I know casinos don't roll like this anymore, but it would be a nice touch if they could have had their fingers broken on the way out.

Speaking of how casinos deal with this kind of thing, isn't there a company that specifically keeps a book of known cheats and card counters? I recall this being one of the main wrenches in the MIT blackjack team's works.

Sadly, it's unlikely the casinos of old would have, unless they cheated "one of their own". Only poker players are victims of this kind of cheat. The house makes out like a bandit, hitting max rakes with greater frequency.

Perhaps they make out in the short term, until they don't have a game to rake anymore because the cheats drove out all the straight-up players.

I think there's a book for people who cheat the casinos (i.e. beat the house out of money at house edge games) but I'm not sure that applies to the poker rooms and people who are cheating because they're cheating other players rather than the house (generally) and not sure a small dog track would be included in something like that.

It's kinda worse than that, because I know I've read multiple stories of guys getting cheated in poker by guys who had already been banned from blackjack. Translation, they don't mind letting suspected cheats play in the poker room.
