NYC Poker Club Gets Robbed. Again.

RobberAs we've said before, fool us once, then shame on you. Fool us 147 times, shame on us.

So we'll give the NYC underground poker club that got robbed by gunpoint last night and had been robbed once before another 145 more times to finally get it right and realize it needs a new location.

As reported in The Observer today:

"[T]he establishment, located on the third floor of the building, had been operating for about six months. Prior to that, another poker room had existed at the same location for approximately a year and a half. It had been robbed as well."

Last night, the robbers walked with $50,000 from the club, which by the way is located at 328 East 61st Street in case you want to rob it once it reopens.

Responding to the incident, New York City Councilwoman Jessica Lappin, who unfortunately may be someone's mother, had the following to say:

"I told the NYPD about the existence of this illegal gambling hall weeks ago . . . We're lucky that no one was hurt, but a bust could have prevented this dangerous armed robbery from happening. At least now this den of inequity is closed for good."

Den of inequity? Who the fuck talks like this? Perhaps she meant Den of Iniquity, which if you're ever there we recommend the "That's 70's Dungeon." Good times.

sucker fool

Played at the club, deserved what they got, had a negro running to door checking people for guns. Next time get a white guy


I went to that place three weeks after it was shut down (not knowing it had been closed) and it was by no means trendy. It was a dump and the sign on the door of the third floor actually said it had been condemned.....

no chops - "inequity" is a synonym for "negative EV"- and I'm sure that for most doucheballs, it was indeed a den of inEquity.

reminds me of the Three Amigos... "INfamous? INfamous?"

worried about my club being cracked down on by the cops now...


I think you meant "Din of inequity." That's what we hear when Phil Hellmuth takes a bad beat.


Here's the main problem. An underground club should probably (actually) be located underground, not on the third floor. Had they used the literal definition instead of trying to be fancy New York City trend setters they may have had more success and avoided getting robbed. Who's afraid to rob a third-floor club? Not me, that's who.
