    Oh, I thought you were going to say it was like a special grand prize or something... like he bought in for the $125, played it, won it and part of his prize was an entry to the $25K high roller :) :) :)

    Funny he took 3 players out with him :)

    Perhaps I should have worded the title better.

    If I was busted out by him I would demand my buy in back and solicit Nevada Gaming Board assistance if necessary.

    When they were checking the amount of buy ins versus the prize pool being offered, it didn't even out... so they checked video and found out where the mistake was.

    Did get his money back at least? Not his fault that they put him in the wrong tourney.

    That Justin Bonomo has been to a home game I used to attend back in the day before he was a pro. Knew one or two people I used to hang out with. He's from my area apparently.

    The guy is completely awkward to be around. No social skills back then at all.

    Of course, this was around 10 years ago.

    I don't feel for the guy trying to defraud the tourney. That's stealing from other players, not the house. High likelihood of getting caught too. Even if the house somehow didn't notice, usually the guys that win (or at least one of em? are gonna check the math on their prize.
