ACCOUNT OF AN INCIDENT AT A LAS VEGAS
STRIP CASINO IN JUNE, 2005
By Mr. X.
From the editors of BJI: Mr. X is a part-time advantage player with 10 years playing experience mostly in Las Vegas. This is the one and only back-room incident that you are about to read that he experienced during his playing career. I have independently checked Mr. X’s story and it is completely true.
This report was written in full within eight hours of the incident described herein. Other than changing names, locations, and games, the original content has not been modified since its original writing.
All names of individuals are anonymous (Jane, John, Man A, Man B, etc.)
I have changed my name to "Mr. X."
The casino name has been changed to "Plato’s"
The casino I was staying at has been changed to "Wilma’s"
The specific game I was hole-carding has been changed to "Martha™"
I was playing Martha™ at Plato’s casino, in a game where the dealer was flashing her hole card in a way that was clearly visible from first base. I had arrived at this game at approximately 12:50 AM, and the dealer’s name was Jane, a female Asian dealer in her early 40’s. I had played blackjack and Martha™ each of the previous two nights in this casino, each time for about an hour. On this day, I continued to play against Jane until her break at 1:20 AM. At that time, I also "took a break," and I returned to the table when Jane came back to deal, at about 1:40 AM. I knew that playing in this way was a lawful activity in the State of Nevada, although casinos certainly did not appreciate clients playing in this way as it gives the player a significant edge over the casino.
At approximately 2:00 AM, two individuals without identifying badges (Man A and Man B) and two security officers approached the table.
