Is there really enough material for a Chad Power self-containment thread? If not, this thread is about Chad Power being a victim to a crime.

Not to blame the victim, book looking at it like a poker hand, it does not seem well played to have $1 million in a safe in your house that can be carried out.

It is also interesting the Brewer is a member of a street gang and has a prior conviction for following home a poker player and robbing him. It is something to be aware of that there may be people looking to do this.

I don't play high stakes live cash games, and understand there may be difficulties with needing to handle large sums. I got a little concerned carrying a few thousand or driving home with more from a tournament cash.
He's a victim here but he's also a raging Dbag who voluntarily posted those pictures of himself for all to see. The robber broke in a stole his money and belong in jail. The tabloid didn't break into his house to take those pictures.

Re: Burglar who robbed Chad Power of $1 million sent to jail

What does that have to do with anything? You don't have to be a saint to be protected by the law. Wearing sexy clothes does not make it OK for someone to rape you, and evading taxes does not make it OK for someone to rob you. Your comments are being ignored because they are not germane to the subject of the robbery, not because people are protecting Powers.

Re: Burglar who robbed Chad Power of $1 million sent to jail

LoL @ someone trusting a private business to safeguard millions in cash/valuables. What a bunch of morons. Let's just give law enforcement as easy access and as big of a target as possible to come seize your funds. These law enforcement types will confiscate $100k off your person and blame it on the particles of weed that they planted, errrrrrrrr found in the carpet on the passenger's side of your vehicle.

I was vigorously nodding my head in silent agreement when I initially read this statement.

Then I came across this picture of Chad and I was no longer quite so committed to my original position.

Re: Burglar who robbed Chad Power of $1 million sent to jail

Chad is baller as hell for sure.

The funniest thing about this thread is that people keep criticizing him for having a millie in the safe. They say he should have put it in the bank, or put it in a safe deposit box, or hidden it away all over his house. They say just put a small amount in the safe so the thieves can leave with something but at least the overall bankroll stays in tact.

Did it not occur to anyone that it's possible that the mllie in the safe was the small amount he left in the safe in-case he ever got robbed? Whose to say he doesn't have $5 million in the bank, $5 million at US Private Vaults in Beverly Hills, and another $5 million hidden in the drywall behind some light switches or some ****? Dude balls hard. A million dollars down the drain is just hitting a little choppy short term variance.

Re: Burglar who robbed Chad Power of $1 million sent to jail

If you pay your taxes and have a good lawyer and aren't a complete degenerate scumbag, there is no reason to keep a million in your safe. Not saying he deserved to be robbed. But if I had a million on me it would be in $25k or $100k chips not in cash in a safe in my house.

Re: Burglar who robbed Chad Power of $1 million sent to jail

If you are doing 6 figure bank transactions on the daily isn't there a far more likely possibility that the feds will confiscate your money and do a meritless investigation on you than if you simply store the money in a safe?

Even if you are the type that tries to do right and tries to cross your Ts and dot your Is, the Feds are a far bigger threat than some low life criminal, IMO.

Re: Burglar who robbed Chad Power of $1 million sent to jail

It’s not ridiculous to insinuate you can get investigated for simply dealing with large amounts of cash. Banks see large amounts of cash as likely criminal behavior. It’s awful but that’s where we as a society now. Welcome in your soon to be currency where big brother monitors all, a digital dollar (FED coin?)
