Giving the Word FLUSH New Meaning

Hey High Rollers, have the patio door open enjoying the beautiful Southern California weather, and woking on the website.  Good news, two new sponsors have joined the fold and the NATION is growing, with 4 new members.  Found this interesting story on CNN this morning…a new meaning to the word – FLUSH!

<New Parlay Odds at BetOnline>

Talk about a FLUSH!

We’ve all heard the saying, “Throwing money down the drain,” One poker player gave new meaning to the saying “throwing money down the drain.” something I secretly say ager each crying call.  You been there?

Well,  Christian Lusardi, 42, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, flushed…literally flushed,  $2.7 million down the drain…2.7 million in counterfeit chips he was apparently using during the Borgata’s Winter Poker Open Big Stack No Limit Hold’em event.  Tournament officials became suspicious and found 160 fake poker chips, each worth $5000, for a stack of $800 grand…Lusardi flushed the chips down the toilet in a room at Harrah’s in Atlantic City.  Cops found them in clogged sewer pipes…the 42 year old was arrested…the tournament was suspended for 24 hours and eventually cancelled.

“A very unusual occurrence,” says Joe Lupo, senior VP of Operation at Borgata, “The first time in Borgata’s 10 years, anything like this has happened.” he adds.

Strange indeed, proving again, you just never know what you’re gonna find in the world of Gambling.
