Lol what an idiot,anyone have any idea of who this is?
Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante
Play hasn't even started for Day 2, but the field is already down a player. The tournament staff announced over the microphone that one plyaer was evicted from the property last night and, as a result, his stack of 84,700 chips were removed from play.
For those keeping track of the exact number of chips in play, two Day 1A players forfeited their stacks of 16,350 and 16,050. Between the evicted player and the two forfeited stacks, that means 117,100 chips have been removed from play.

Is this something new or Borgata-specific? I haven't really played much live poker for 4-5 years, but in my experience smoking up in casino hotel rooms was pretty standard, and I never heard about anyone ever getting hassled about it.
I guess catching you in the act or finding actual weed out on the night table would be one thing, but as far as how a room smells afterwards, I'd 100% expect that to be ignored by housekeeping (or just the usual charge if it is a non-smoking room).
Why is it people can't just go outside or sit in their car to smoke up? I travel all the time and I never actually smoke in my room but smoke quite plenty often good times.
Smoking in your room is 1000x safer than outside where there is people or in your car. If your so paranoid about housekeeping busting you than you do one of three things. Put a sign on your door to not clean your room, get rid of any blunt guts and hide your weed or leave the cleaning lady a $5 tip.
If the guy was smoking weed in a non-smoking room he 100% deserved what happened.
People smoke weed in SMOKING rooms all the time... Nothing ever happens.
Every once in a while some dumbass books a non-smoking room and does it though. I got nothing against people who smoke pot, but if you book a non-smoking room and plan on smoking up then you're a dumbass, plain and simple.
