Stupid Poker Criminals Hall of Fame: Grand Rapids Poker Club

It’s been awhile, so it’s about time for a new Stupid Poker Criminals Hall of Fame induction. Let’s all give a hearty welcome to the Grand Rapids Poker Club.

The story: a raid of an illegal poker operation at a Ramada Plaza Hotel in Kentwood, Michigan yielded over 20 arrests recently.

Normally these raids don’t make it onto our radar anymore, but since the organizers actively passed out fliers, advertised the game on Craigslist, and most importantly, brought in topless dealers for the event, really, how were we going to ignore it?

Watch the above video or read here for more details.

In completely unrelated news, watch British bobsledder Gillian Cooke, a woman, split her spandex before a race here.

    I was exchanging e-mails with the guy before his opening day. He tried to tell me it wasn’t illegal because they charged a $20 cover(which could go towards your tournament buy-in).
    I wasn’t convinced though so I never attended. Although I am sure there was good money to be won, because I’m sure it was just drunk old men playing topless twister with 19 year olds. I wish I had gone now.
