Three-Card Poker Cheat Busted Switching Cards at Pennsylvania Casino!

The rinky-dink casino cheat scams continue in Pennsylvania's new table-games casinos. The latest is a card-switching cheat expedition carried out by thirty-eight year-old Kip Patton Sr of Philadelphia at the Parx Casino in Bensalem. Patton was at the table playing two separate hands of three-card poker, and he decided to improve his odds of winning by switching cards between the two hands to improve one or both of his hands.

Card-Switching can be a very effective method for cheating at poker and casinos--WHEN done by professionals. No doubt Patton is a rank amateur. If he were more professional, I doubt the novice surveillance staff would have caught him.
