    Video Video: Fight at Harrah's New Orleans Poker Room

    I just saw this story on F5poker and thought it was a good angle by Editor Michael Gentile to compare it favorably to the (non) fight between Mayweather/Pacquiao.

    According to the YouTube video description, this was filmed at Harrah's New Orleans on May 9th. "Red Beard" (the guy who got the best of the skirmish) is Jonathan Bloyen according to Facebook posts.

    YouTube Description: One player (guy in red shirt) wins a large pot, which causes the loser of the pot to get angry and call his large friend over to beat up the winner. Even though the winner is initially reluctant to fight and appears intimidated, he delivers a surprising beatdown to an assailant who is much bigger than him!

    Holy Crap. That was like the Wild West. Where was security all that time?

    Wow thats pretty insane, agree with Eric that is a piss poor response time from the security, I thought casinos were supposed to be well secured.

    Yeah, it is crazy that so much time elapsed with no sign of security.

    That was my first impression as well. In all the live casinos I've played at it seems like Security is almost immediately present. Moral of the story is... don't F with Red Beard!

    Yeah, the last thing casinos need is a fiasco where people fly around and knock chips everywhere.

    goddamn i'm glad red could hold his own. the quality of my consciousness would be substantially worse after having watched that if red had been on the receiving end of the beating he gave that asshole. good watch though, as it turned out.

    +1 to everybody in this thead's comments about how shit security setup must be there. anywhere i've played security would have been crawling all over that scene by the 1:00 mark

    yeah!! I agree with the members, where does the word security really exists? I have been tried various live casinos but the Red Beard is not secured at all.

    Hahaha.........WTF ? That wasn't shit It was worth a watch though. I hope they didn't kick the guy in red out because IMO he was just trying to get dude out of there and def did not start it. Seemed like he got in a couple blows but other dude must have had quite a few to drink and prob didn't feel too much. IMO, dude in red should have done a bit more ... I'm big but not as big as either of them and if me I would have done a bit more damage... lol believe that shit !

    Onward, Flop, Turn , RIVER!
