Poker Pro Seduced By Femme Fatale Who Then Steals His $9,000 WinningsSeptember 1, 2010 7:24 am
One of the key disciplines necessary to being a professional poker player is the ability to read your opponent, as well as protect your bankroll.
However, a poker pro staying at the Quality Inn in Hammond, Indiana was unable to do either after having his $9,000 gambling winnings stolen from his hotel room by a woman he had just had sex with.
On Feb. 17, 2009, the victim was plying his trade at the Horseshoe Casino’s poker tables, when 27 year old Lakasha C. Johnson pulled up a chair and caught the gamblers eye.
After two hours playing poker together, the newly aquainted couple then ate breakfast before retiring to his hotel room for some more fun and games.
Stopping off briefly on the way to buy gum and condoms, the couple soon enjoyed a steamy night of passion before exhausted, the poker pro nodded off.
Unfortunately for him, by the time he awoke at 11:30 a.m the next day, his $9,000 poker winnings, which had been hidden behind the TV set, were gone and all he had to show for his night’s action was Lakasha C. Johnson’s knickers on the floor.
After he got over his initial shock, the poker pro contacted local authorities who then placed a warrant out for for Lakasha’s arrest.
Despite facing a possible three year sentence for theft, the femme fatale eventually received 90 hours community service and was ordered to repay the stolen $9,000 by a Lake Superior Court jury on Aug. 9th.
The unamed professional gambler, on the other hand, got a poker tale he wouldn’t soon forget.
