Woman Steals Poker Pro’s Winnings

It’s normal for a person to get lucky once in a while. However, if a time ever comes that you get ‘too lucky’, don’t get too lax. Instead, be more vigilant. This rule is what one poker pro forgot about when he won $9,000 at a poker tournament, only to have all that money stolen the next day by a woman he went to bed with.


The Story

A Poker Pro, whose name will remain private for obvious reasons, had his money stolen after he just won it by playing poker. He was staying at the Quality Inn in Hammond, Indiana when the whole thing happened. He was simply playing poker when Lakasha C. Johnson, a 27 year old female, approached the table and started playing. Of course, being quite an attractive woman, Lakasha quickly caught the eye of the said poker pro. The two of them played poker for two hours, getting to know each other and flirting in between hands. After the game, the two of them went to get some breakfast then headed directly to the pro’s hotel room for some, well, action. Or, if you really want to get specific, they had sex.

The poker pro, having had quite a productive day, soon dozed off after the night’s activities. However, when he woke up near lunch time the next day, the girl was gone, and so was his money. He had hidden it behind the TV set, but the girl still found it. She did give something in exchange for the money though – her knickers.


The Aftermath

Of course, things like this cannot be allowed to go unpunished. The poker pro soon contacted the local authorities and a warrant for the girl’s arrest was released. She could have faced a devastating three year sentence for theft. But she got off easy and just got 90 hours of community service instead, as well as, of course, paying back the $9,000 to the poker pro. The jury truly went easy with her with that very light sentence so Lakasha should count herself lucky. It’s also likely that this was just her first attempt at theft because she was caught way too quickly.

Hopefully, this is the last time that Lakasha attempts something this outrageous. As for the poker pro, he’d better take better care of his bankroll or at the very least, find a better hiding place.
