    Broke poker player arrested for robbing house of successful pro Darren Elias

    https://www.pocketfives.com/articles...s-home-623316/

    Here is 24-year-old Shannon Soroka, who is apparently not doing very well in poker::



    He's from New Jersey.

    He decided to go after successful pro Darren Elias, who most recently won $473k by finishing 3rd at the LAPC Main Event this month.

    Ths plan was to burst into Elias' house and demand him to hand over cash at gunpoint. He went there on Friday night (March 15) to do this.

    However, Elias and his wife were out at the time, and had a 19-year-old babysitter watching their 2-year-old.

    Not to be deterred, Soroka held the babysitter at gunpoint and demanded to know where the money was kept.

    The babysitter didn't know this, so he finally locked her in an upstairs bathroom and ran off.

    It's not clear how Soroka was identified as the robber.

    He was charged with robbery, aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a firearm, mischief, and making terrorsitic threats.

    By coincidence, this robbery occurred on the same date as the Bellagio robbery, where career criminal Michael Cohen was shot dead after shooting at police at Bellagio's north valet.

    gonna be interesting...I think your numbers might be reasonable if he did this to adults...but to terrorize a teenager and a baby in this kinda neighborhood, I wouldn't be surprised if the judge throws the book and gives him the max he can...
