It gives a brand new name to fish and chips as Jay Newmun a 41 year old Poker blogger was caught stealing close to $700 from the dealer’s tips with chopsticks.
Perhaps living in Fishers, Indiana gave him the idea but nevertheless he was sentenced to a probation program after being arrested on misdemeanor larceny charges on December 16 at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
Newnum made a post in his blog stating he plans to “step away from the poker world indefinitely.” He has refused to discuss the case in a statement made about the arrest.
The money was reportedly returned to the casino by Newnum after the Mega Stack Challenge $600 No-Limit Texas Hold’em Tournament.
Billy Shea president of the Foxwoods’ dealer union hired Newnum to provide online video coverage of the tournament event.
