The Romanian Blind Steal

Dnnno what and how much to post ere but i basically wasted an hour of my life with the floor people accusing a Romanian of stealing 10-20k yellow 1k chips off me in the horse. There is no conclusive evidence as camera was not on that table (normally casino part of venetian) but i spoke with Paul Parker who was on that table with me for that 20mins and he confirmed to me i had not lost a pot there so i know i was down 10-20k in chips when i got moved to another table near the end of the night. I had been on the white russians so i was not completely confident but i also wasnt as guarded as normal and now im completely sober i know it was a steal. It was confirmed when i spoke to Paul after bagging up and for no reason the Romanian in question came up to us to ask if there was a problem and acted exactly as i would expect once i told him i was thinking of asking for the cameras (already had done that and knew no result). Even wanted to shake my hand for some unknown reason as i hadnt accused him at that point as was in seat 2 so for all he knew i could have been after seat 1. soooooooooooo guilty.

I only entered this horse as a test for wsop horse events for razz, stud and stud hi lo and ive passed but i cant imagine what i might say to this guy 2moz. Gonna hav to restrain myself beyond belief or go to an extreme end of sarcasm to not get into trouble myself. Its so not about the money but im such a one for principles so i hope i dont disgrace myself with it.

As for the game itself back at 4pm no idea how many left etc but ive only got 20,500 as lost some at new table where i sat out half a level whilst talking to directors before losing 1 big pot. Started with 10k so thats pretty weak. Romanian has 80k+

PS: This is not a racial attack i know a couple of Romanian good chaps from poker but i do not know this guys name but he "befriended" me on a previous table so was obviously angling for this sort of move the whole time.

That is absolutely disgusting mate but like TeamDobb says, I think it goes on more than we'd like to believe.

I think Annette had a chip "stolen" from her on her way to winning the WSOPE but it was more like an accident IMO.

Hope Karma is on your side when you start playing again.
