Dealer's Hand Broken By Irate Player

Thang Luu, the two times WSOP bracelet winner, allegedly broke a dealers hand on June 3 and was banned from the Rio Casino.
The incident occurced after Thang Luu, in late position during a cash game, was heads up in a hand with another player, with the action going all the way to the river, At this point the other player told the dealer that he couldn’t see Thang Luu’s cards. When the dealer took his cards and tried to move them nearer, Luu then reportedly bashed the hand of the dealer, and told him never to touch his cards again. Ironically this is likely to be the case.
Straight after the incident, Luu was removed by police from the Rio Casino. in Las Vegas, and taken into custody where officers are continuing with their enquiries. The dealers hand is reported to be broken between the knuckles and wrist of his hand and if this proves to be the case, assault charges are very likely to follow. Luu will then no doubt face a lifetime ban from Harrah’s.
Thang Luu is a professional poker player who has had a remarkable run at the WSOP $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better event, where he finished 2nd in 2007, and first in both the 2008 and2009 WSOP events. His live tournament cashes to date is believed to be around $1 million.
