Poker prize money frozen after champion allegedly pockets 25K chip
Mike Caro says:
I’ve publicly alerted poker rooms to this type of cheating over 15 years ago. I don’t know the specifics of this case or whether this guy actually did what was alleged or had sinister motives. But I do know that the practice isn’t uncommon. Management needs to make sure chip counts balance at the end of poker tournaments. And they should begin each event with either new chips or ones specifically marked to prevent previous chips from being introduced during competition. — MC
