Player arrested after $2.7 million in fake Atlantic City poker tournament chips flushed down toilet
Daily Mail ↑

Mike Caro says:

Actually, you shouldn’t just worry about fake chips in poker tournaments, you should worry about authentic ones, too. I pointed this out years ago to casinos when final chip accounting wasn’t as expected. When significant shortfalls are noticed at the end of a tournament, those chips should never be reused. The missing chips probably didn’t vanish as souvenirs. They’ll be back to visit at the most unwelcome times.

But this toilet thingy is a new twist to me. Punishment? I’m leaning toward life in prison without parole, but maybe I’ve mellowed out too much. There was a time when I would have strongly advocated the death penalty. Of course, people who don’t know me very well think I’m joking. Unfortunately, I don’t find the topic amusing.— MC
