Amarillo Slim Robbed in His Home

AmarilloslimbigLegendary poker player and all-around crazy ass gambler Amarillo Slim was Pablo Escobar‘s men in Colombia and just a few years months ago was shot at three times in his car truck (because it’s frickin’ Texas) after he told a would-be robber to “fuck off,” more or less, while slamming his truck into reverse.

    seriously. would have been great to see how relaxed he was during the ordeal..like it wasnt a big deal. or maybe he pissed in his pants, i don’t know. He is 78 after all.

    **just a few years ago was shot at three times in his car**
    is this the same thing as when his truck got shot at a few months ago? (cops still have no suspects on that one either.)
    on a totally unrelated note … i bet that amarillo slim can tell some good tall tales.

    thanks dan, yeh “years” was a typo and should have known it was a truck since “vehicle” in Texas is synonymous with truck.
