Karas loses big
Anargyros Karabourniotis, a.k.a. Archie Karas, has been placed on the Nevada List of Excluded Persons, meaning he is barred from Nevada casinos forever.
Karas is famous for an alleged poker winning streak in the 1990s that turned into $17 million over a period of months, then $40 million in three years. However, he was added to the List—known informally as the black book—because of repeated cheating.
He later lost the entire amount.
Once noted for the organized crime figures it was originally created for, the List of Excluded Persons additions in the 21st century have all been cheats.
