    Adam "Pacman" Jones
    the vid shows his cheating move at 1:30 - he's not very good at it

    A good lawyer may have been able to beat this....

    At 1:31 in the video after he flips his Hard 20 he places another chip next to his bet prior to the dealer flipping his down card. According to the rules of the game, that's a "Double Down" or a "split" since he had paired cards. He never made the "stand" signal.

    However, since he didn't stop there and reached straight into the dealers tray (2:13 mark), it shows his "mindset". There is not audio but it appears he wanted the dealer to hit his Soft 17 in a stand 17 game.

    So many things wrong with this, I wouldn't know where to begin. Any dealer worth his salt would have certainly seen the extra chip go out and would then need to ask, "Are you splitting?" If the answer is no, then the next question would be, "Then what is this chip doing beside your original bet?" Under no circumstances would the dealer just add the second bet to the top of the first. He obviously was totally incompetent.

    So, while it's clear that Pacman is, indeed, a piece of shit, this incident was surely handled very badly.

    I recall an interesting discussion about pro athletes who made vast fortunes, but are now penniless or have a net worth that is a negative number, all due to poor money management skills. They apparently never heard that little saying about, "Sock some of that shit away for Winter!" If you act irresponsibly, things are all but guaranteed to go horribly wrong when it comes to money management. Because of the amount of money involved, it's difficult to feel sorry for them, especially if you've done 1000x better with 100x less to work with! I don't know what his financial situation is currently, maybe he's just a lunatic in attempting to cheat, maybe he'll wake up from a 5 year long drunk to find himself living in a van down by the river, who knows. There's lots of sad stories with some of these guys who had it all, only to lose it all by the time they are middle-aged.

    This is a sad case, risking what appears to be a $100 bet for a felony.
    Especially since he has had a decade plus long career and possibly squandered many millions of dollars away.

    I believe great athletes are as great as they are at least in part because they are very aggressive physically
    if that aggressiveness carries over to their financial decisions it often doesn't work out well
    they get ripped off by con artists telling them they can double their money in a year



    also, of course, they overspend, trying to show how "large" they live to impress the wannabees and hangers on

    I agree with you Don. I thought the same thing when I saw the video. That’s why I figured the casino must have had a lot more video of him cheating or they wouldn’t have arrested him. I’m sure Pacman got a lawyer and the lawyer looked at all the video and said you better plead guilty because they got you.

    I wonder where the news media got this video. I doubt if they got it from the casino, but who knows.
