Pity..
Seeing as I'm Korean myself.

Never knew there were Korean people trying to cheat in western style situations.
Most Korean cheats are too used to palming traditional Korean playing cards (which are about 1/4 the size of a poker card and aren't flexible)

There hasn't been much else on the internet about this team. I'm surprised there is not more interest here though... as these guys were switching cards on baccarat. Previously in some threads the practicality of such scams as well as the possibility of use of holdouts in modern casinos has been argued hypothetically and here we have a real case of card switchers and barely a peep.

I hear what you are saying Foresector, about the smaller style cards. I have recently seen a Korean news clip showing a gambling bust with many kinds of marked cards (regular size) and cheating devices.

To any of those fellow Canadians out their who may know more about this case or have even heard rumours.. I would love to hear from you. I know some of you are in the Casino Rama area.
Certainly someone has looked into this case?

Is it possible in Ontario to go and attend a trial in a case like this? How does someone find that kind of info: when the trial is set, etc.?

You can also read what Richard Marcus has to say about it on his blog (if you are so inclined) but I won't post a link.

Just like a lot of cases here, it's all been swept under the rug.

These guys are screwed, getting pinched North vs. South of the border is two different worlds.
