Thanks to all of those who offered excellent advice and showed their support for me in this thread. I greatly appreciate how helpful and kind you've been.

A special thanks to Linda McCall in the security department who, over the last several weeks, has been especially patient, helpful and understanding.

power 2 the people imo

hey hek I'm that kid who was on vacation that played short handed with you your first weekend at mohegan after the banning

mohegan was the nicest room i've ever been too as well... they get good 5/10 games going regularly now? can compete with the action at foxwoods?

glad everything worked out for you

Re: I got banned for LIFE from Foxwoods (tl;dr)

seated at venetian 5/10nl today and recognize the guy across the table from me. after he notices me staring at him funny a few times he stops making eye contact. i checked the name screen on the table and it reads "4: FRANKIE F." he talks a lot and eventually leaves the table for a few hours and i left before he returned.

Re: I got banned for LIFE from Foxwoods (tl;dr)

floor manager screws you and the guy wont pay, then you get banned for no reason. so unfair. ive heard that if you get a lawyer to request you being reinstated on letterhead that most casinos dont want to mess with legal straps so theyll just unban you. when im playing poker i always try to make sure that the casino can back me up on a transaction of the pot. for instance, sometimes players use chips from a foreign casino and under some rules, they actually dont play in the game. if they go allin and lose a pot, they could actually take their chips back and the floor cant make them pass them. also, if players are playing with a verbal cap, max bet of 2k, but each of you have 10k in play, they could actually put you allin on the turn after you tank called allin on the flop for 2k and theres nothing the floor can do about it. iow, its important to make sure the law and the floor can enforce rules that protect you. instead.. they ban you. gl hek youre a nice guy

Re: I got banned for LIFE from Foxwoods (tl;dr)

For what it's worth...Last night Dentale (the guy who screwed me over in the equity chop I wrote about in my OP) was playing 5/10nl at Mohegan and caused a huge scene when the dealer mistakenly pushed him a pot that he didn't win. Many players at the table saw the mistake including the floorman. According to 2 players who witnessed it, he wrapped his arms around the chips and started yelling "you're not getting this pot. You need security to stop me." He became louder and louder until he grabbed his chips and ran out of the poker room with security after him.

He ran off with someone elses money and didn't care if the whole casino knew. True man of integrity.

Re: I got banned for LIFE from Foxwoods (tl;dr)

lol. This guy just seems to cause a scene anywhere he goes. I was at borgata in june and I heard a lot of noise coming from a 2-5 table and went to see what was going on. Sure he enough, he was there, surrounded by two or three security guards. Not sure exactly what the problem was but I think it had to do something with the woman he was sitting next to.
