Was WSOP Winner Chau Giang Caught Stealing At The Bellagio?UPDATE 21/2/14: Todd Brunson Apologizes For Chau Giang Cheating Slander
At present the Two Plus Two poker forums are abuzz with speculation following Todd Brunson’s twitter revelation which seemed to suggest 3-times WSOP bracelet winner Chau Giang was caught trying to steal an $800 chip whilst playing a $80/160 mixed game at the Bellagio. On 28th January, Todd Brunson tweeted the following message:
“A guy I used to play 4k-8k with every day just got caught on camera stealing $800 from the Jap 5 minutes ago at the Bellagio.. The jap came back from the bathroom, being the cheap skate he is, knew down to the last penny how much he had on the table. So he asked dealer what happened. Then told the floor to check the camera…. Busted!!!!”
Continuing his story, Brunson said that the accused player then desperately tried to come up with an excuse for the incident, explaining that the “well-known player said; ” I sorry, I’m thought those mine ships.”  Apparently, the police were not alerted and the casino management then asked the robbed man if he could just leave it at that.
According to Brunson, the player’s seat in relation to the Japanese player’s meant it was 100% certain it was not a mistake, and after Todd’s tale piqued the interest of his Twitter users, the 44 year-old son of Doyle Brunson said the player was an older Asian man with 3 WSOP bracelets, and that “his name is used for both hello and goodbye.”
If the story is true, it begs the question why a high-stakes poker pro should find it necessary to steal $800, although Brunson hinted that the unnamed player has a great craps problem. It would seem Brunson has no love for his high-stakes opponent, either, and as he also mentioned this player had previously told Johnny Chan “I hope ur kids get cancer, die”
Chau Giang, 55, is a prolific cash poker pro who in the 1970’s made over $100,000 in his first year as a professional and ever since has been “a consistent winner in the biggest game for many years,” according to Barry Greenstein.
