Amarillo Slim Robbed in His Home

AmarilloslimbigLegendary poker player and all-around crazy ass gambler Amarillo Slim was tied up and robbed by two men in his Texas home Sunday night. According to Slim, he returned home to find the two in his house, with his shotguns.

Slim was reportedly unhurt, and the two eventually fled, with his shotguns.

We suspect Slim, who is a young 78, was unphased by the incident considering he's once been kidnapped by Pablo Escobar's men in Colombia and just a few years months ago was shot at three times in his car truck (because it's frickin' Texas) after he told a would-be robber to "fuck off," more or less, while slamming his truck into reverse.

Ha! This guy can't catch a break, some folks are doomed to an interesting life.


thanks dan, yeh "years" was a typo and should have known it was a truck since "vehicle" in Texas is synonymous with truck.

**just a few years ago was shot at three times in his car**

is this the same thing as when his truck got shot at a few months ago? (cops still have no suspects on that one either.)

on a totally unrelated note ... i bet that amarillo slim can tell some good tall tales.


seriously. would have been great to see how relaxed he was during the ordeal..like it wasnt a big deal. or maybe he pissed in his pants, i don't know. He is 78 after all.

wow.. these guys are like 40 years behind the times! Slim's been getting tied up and robbed since the 60's at least!
