Poker Player Stabbed to Death at Taj Mahal in Atlantic City

Poker player stabs, kills another at Taj Mahal in Atlantic CityVicente Perez, a poker player from Georgia, is being held by authorities today in Atlantic City and faces charges of aggravated manslaughter after he stabbed another player to death at the Trump Taj Mahal, the crap-heap casino featured in the poker movie Rounders and which was voted "Atlantic City's Most Likely Place to Get Stabbed While Playing Poker" by Atlantic City Weekly readers*.

The incident took place Saturday afternoon after the two got into a verbal confrontation while playing cards in the Taj's poker room. The argument carried over into the valet area of the parking garage when Perez pulled out a knife and repeatedly stabbed the now-deceased player.

Perez is being held at the Atlantic County Jail on $500,000 bail.

Story here and here.

* Not true, but if they had a poll, it probably would be considering the place is rife with the type of blowhards you'd expect to pull out a knife and stab you for no good reason. In case you're not reading between the lines, we're not big fans of the Taj.
