Wow. Just when you thought Harrah’s couldn’t be any dumber.

Richard Brodie is something of an internet friend of mine (although we’ve never actually met).  I first encountered him on flyertalk, where he was a regular contributor and we got into a number of good natured discussions there.  He has generously given me some good advice on Vegas hotels and is generally a cool guy.  From flyertalk, I discovered his blog, where he details his adventures in the poker world.  He made a tidy sum as an early Microsoft guy developing Word and now does the poker circuit and whatever else strikes his fancy.  He has had a run of good luck lately, hitting a few high dollar video poker jackpots and as a result has been banned from Harrah’s hotels.  This is quite literally mind-boggling.  As a result of this foolishness, he is not permitted to play in the World Series of Poker.  I’m completely disgusted.

I'm a hard-core limit ring game poker player who is becoming a degenerate sports bettor. I'm sure it will all make more sense if you read on.
