About a dozen years ago, I was playing "let it ride" at a small casino that only housed about 30 tables in Richmond BC. There was an older disabled gentleman playing who I had recognized from playing several times before. During the play, another man walked up behind him and started talking quietly behind him. The dealer kept dealing, and as I was playing, I started to make out part of what he was saying to him- "Ya think I don't see you in here gambling placing bets, you think you can keep playing before you give my money back? My people telling me your in here all the time, but I don't get my money? Ya know what happens to people who don't pay me back?" Holy crap! I was sitting at a table with loansharking/gang @!&$ about to go down! The dealer kept dealing and inside I'm starting to freak out! Why isn't the dealer calling security? Is he going to pull a gun? Knife? Out in the parking lot? Do I get away from the table? Holy crap! I decided it was a good time to use the facilities! When I returned, the pit boss was talking and smiling with the gang guy really nicely, and another guy came to the disabled guy and said they had a drive home for him arranged and were escorting him out with security. The dealer kept dealing. I coloured up and went home, never to return. Now I see our local has lots of problems with investigations into money laundering from the gangs. Yikes! I only play slots now,lol! About 7 years later I went to pick my child up from her pre-school and in walked the disabled guy from that night picking up his granddaughter as it turned out. As he walked past me I saw a flicker of recognition on his face, like he was trying to place me from somewhere.......I didn't bring it up! Anyone ever see anything strange (good or bad) going down in a casino??
