Excuse Me, Mr. Pit Boss...

But the gentleman at my table has a real "Phil Helmuth" funk wafting from his person.

"So what of it?"

Gambler Makes Stink About Casino Ejection Due To B.O.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- A Brooklyn man who went on a shower-less 17-hour gambling spree at a New Jersey casino is demanding an apology for being ejected because of his body odor.
Ahh. A Philadelphia station reporting on a stinky New Yorker in a New Jersey casino.

They should have just tossed him into one of the pools at the casino's new Water Club.

But now the fun begins. Degenerate Philadelphia gamblers, no doubt with their own "brand" of effervescence, are sounding off on the story.

Go on, readers. Tell Fox Philly what you think.

(Personally, I agree with "JT": "Ten to one he was winning at the time. A casino wouldn't throw out a family of skunks as long as they were losing money.")

I'm actually planning an AC trip later this year. How does the Borgata feel about lactose intolerance? So long as I'm winning, the cheese stays in the wrapper...

I am headed up to the Borgata on Saturday for a big Bday bash. AC Cougars at the pool are already sniffin.

The casino makes money from poker via the "rake," where the casino takes a certain percentage of every pot.

Theoretically, if you are losing a lot of money you aren't paying much rake because it is taken out of the pot, which goes to the winner of the hand. Everyone ends up paying the rake, though, so it wouldn't really matter to the casino.

True. 17 hours is a long time though. Then again that could just be 3 poker games. As a sometimes patron, I'd prefer they kicked half their clientele out.

Would you mind telling me how to trackback with blogger? I know how to do it with WordPress.

Thanks.

The latest revelation: the guy was 440 pounds! Apparently, that's why they didn't toss him into a pool.
