Serial Killer Joran van der Sloot is Also International Poker Cheat!
Natalee Holloway was also seen on video tape with van der Sloot inside a casino in Aruba, as was Stephany Flores Ramirez in the Lima poker club and casino named Atlantic City.
Are you starting to notice that each murder that van der Sloot is charged with or suspected of originates inside casinos? So then, what is van der Sloot constantly doing in casinos? He surely can't be stalking potential pre-meditated murder victims, as this would make no sense as he murdered Flores-Ramirez in a Lima hotel room that he had rented under his real name and showed his real passport while checking in. Serial killers are almost always highly intelligent and do not do stupid things like this when planning their murders.
What really happened is that van der Sloot arrived in Lima, where a major poker tournament on the Latin American Poker Tour was being held at the Atlantic City Casino. He was working the tables in a collusion scam, and possibly a card-switching scam as well. I know firsthand that Peruvian casino officials are not very sharp in the surveillance department and I have previously blogged about their weakness and vulnerability to poker cheats and casino cheats. Evidently, van der Sloot is not highly skilled as a poker cheat, although he gets his highs from card-cheating just as he does from extortion scams and murder.
Flores-Ramirez, who apparently had won $5,000 while van der Sloot sat at her poker table, may have been an attempted poker-cheat victim of van der Sloot, or may have seen him cheat someone else at the poker table. Van der Sloot, in his confession to Peruvian police, said he killed Flores-Ramirez for snooping into his laptop computer while he had left the room to get coffee. In any case, who knows what the girl saw on the computer...it may have been poker cheating materials or online cheating programs such as bot software. We may learn more about this from Peruvian police who are thoroughly examining the contents of van der Sloot's laptop...at least what van der Sloot has not erased.
I have known few cases of Dutch brick and mortar poker cheating or casino cheating teams, but Van der Sloot has spent much of his life in Aruba, a HUGE poker and casino cheating haven that I wrote extensively about in my book "American Roulette." There are many casino and poker cheats who live and work the island, and there is no doubt that Joran van der Sloot was a member, whether it be part or full time, of one of these cheat teams.
He may have been cheating at poker in Columbia as well. And as his laptop appears to always be in his company, it is highly probable that Joran van der Sloot plays online poker, and almost as highly probable that he cheats in online poker.
