"Vegas Poker Incident"
My best friend who lives in Florida
, his daughter was dating this guy that comes from an extremely wealthy family. I meet him when he and my friendís family flew up to N.Y. I knew of this kidís family background, and found him to be very pleasant after meeting him. He turns out to be a big stakes poker player. Heís 26 years old and I was rather surprised when we started talking poker and the stakes he was playing at. Then I find out that he and my friendís daughter were flying to Vegas the next day.
Monday my friend calls me, and tells
me that he took this kid to a bank and witnessed him transfer $150,000.00 dollars to the cage at the Bellagio, in Vegas, before getting dropped off at the airport. A clue to who his dad is: owner of the biggest residential home ever built in the state of Florida.
Anyhow, a couple of days later my friend calls me from Florida. Apparently there was an incident that took place at the Bellagio poker room involving a famous pro and this kid.
It turns out this kid is a complete arrogant asshole; especially at the tables, where most everyone that knows him donít like him. This is all being reported to my friend from his daughter. His daughter by the way is a gorgeous woman, and use to date Derrick Jeter. I know this is all sounding weird, but believe me itís all true fact. So, while they were in Vegas my friendís daughter said, he was playing poker for two days straight and only slept for 3 hours. Getting bored of being by herself, and fending off guys hitting on her, she decides to go hang out with him at the poker table again. She happens to walk in just when he lost a huge hand. He starts losing it, telling her sheís bad fn luck, embarrassing her in front of all the players and then throws two $100.00 chips to her and tells her to go shopping. She picked up the chips and threw them back at him. With that a well known pro we all know, tells her she donít have to take that shit from a asshole and hands up three $5,000.00 dollar chips and tells her to go get herself something nice. This was the same player that just cracked him on that last hand.
She kept them and stormed out of the poker room, and cashed out the chips. She went to her room and packed up. Unable to get a flight till the next day back home, she called her dad and checked into a different casino for the night and flew home the next day.
Now there are all kinds of sparks flying around with them, and him accusing her of disrespecting him, etc. etc. Itís now at the point where my friend had to get involved.
I guess what happens in Vegas, donít always stay there. Thought it was an interesting story to tell everyone.
