    Hopefully we can get some more photos of these guys. Perhaps the card house will be willing to release the membership photos ,or security footage.

    Great! Hopefully they get blacklisted. Haven't seen them around since that one day. I've told several folks at local rooms I frequent. Wish I would've taken good pics of them when I was at the table.

    As I think I laid out in some detail in my previous post they're definitely edge marking the cards. I noticed the guy messing around with the cards suspiciously while looking down at his hole cards. If you've played poker for a while and pay attention to this guy he definitely isn't a normal player just checking his hole cards. Sometimes I saw marked cards that were frayed or obviously gouged by these edge marks in the muck. Obviously, this kind of cheating will only work if someone with good eyes sits in the one seat and looks down at the side of the deck before the flop, turn, and river.

    UPDATE:

    Got this news a couple weeks ago but just got around to posting. Apparently they got banned from the place I saw them in Austin a while back for collusion/signaling.

    Haven't heard of any more Florida sightings of these two, word spread pretty quick. Have you heard back from the dealer at the place in Texas with more details?

    I spoke with a dealer at the room they were booted from. He confirmed they were marking the actual edges of the cards (not the top side, but the edge)

    I don’t know how it varies from state to state, but card marking in a casino is mostly illegal. In fact a felony in many cases. I know these guys aren’t playing in top end casinos on the Vegas Strip, but that’s not the main issue. It’s because they are cheating in a game where they are not playing against the house.

    The boot is literally the least they can do. In fact, the word is out so much that if they are spotted playing, the word may very likely matriculate to the players on the table and they could all get up. Fucking places need to do more than kick these fuckers out. Call the authorities. Maybe in most places the cops won’t do shit, but it’s something. I know places in Texas don’t want authorities around because of ambiguity in the laws for their own operation. It’s a shame.

    In Florida, they will let them play. Hell, they even let Russ Hamilton play here at Gulfstream under the old management. And from what I heard when the other players gave Hamilton crap for being a cheater, the floor gave the other players a hard time. But then again, the Israelis that play there routinely work together and the old management used to let them work the room. I wouldn't sit when they played and would get up and leave or switch tables when they sat down. This, of course, is all pre-covid as I haven't played live poker since February.

    These cuban theifs made their way to Chaser's Poker room in Salem, New Hampshire. They were marking cards stole thousands from players and management is not doing a thing to help those they stole from. Same deal, sat in seat 1 to see dealers deck of cards easier. Chaser's Poker room owners don't care about their customers and players will avoid their room unless they step up. here is a video of them

    Robbing like cheating in the game or robbing in the traditional sense?

    Thanks for getting the word out. I have played at Chasers a few times and itís always seemed like a well run room. Sounds like they have been at Boston Billiards also. Surprised at both of those rooms not catching them or taking action.
