Poker Faced Baccarat Cheats Sentenced in Huge Cheat Scam!
In the biggest poker or casino scam ever pulled off (outside of online poker cheat scams), four poker-faced Asian baccarat cheats belonging to the Tran Organization were sentenced to serious prison terms and ordered to reimburse casinos in the US and Canada huge amounts of money. The $20 million false shuffle scam they laid down by recruiting crooked dealers and floor personnel was actually my first cheating experience when I dealt baccarat in Las Vegas in the late '70s. I am not sure that I was the first person to do this scam but imagine I was one of the early ones. IT has since been done many times across the world.
