Incident at Hollywood Casino

I wasn't there, but if this is the kind of thing that goes on at Hollywood Casino I am not sure I want to play poker there.
The following is from the "The Journal's" website.  The Journal is the Eastern Panhandle's daily newspaper.

Man arrested on betting charges
September 18, 2010
CHARLES TOWN - A Lorton, Va., man was arrested on four counts of West Virginia table games violation Thursday at the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races.

Abraham G. Abraham, 43, allegedly was caught on surveillance video placing a bet after knowing the outcome of four separate Texas Hold Em poker games, according to court records.

Abraham allegedly told West Virginia Lottery Investigator David Loftis that he had placed a bet after knowing his hand approximately five or six times, and that he was sorry.

Abraham was arrested at 8:44 p.m. Thursday and taken to the Eastern Regional Jail. He was later released on a $10,000 bond.

I am guessing that this gentleman will not be welcome at Hollywood Casino again.  I think the article was trying to say Abraham was allegedly trying to put chips into the pot after he knew he had won.  The way the article is worded it sounds like you are not allowed to bet on Texas Hold Em.

Either way, Hollywood Casino would do well to get the exact circumstances published so others don't try it.  I would like to think that the casino would like to run a clean game.  Because at some point I would like to Enjoy the Pokery Goodness there.
