    Hope this isn't a D_B.


    The very public habit has finally caught up to him.

    If you're gonna steal from Steve Wynn, you'd better goddamn know. This sorta thing used to be civilized: you'd hit a guy, he'd whack you, done. But with Wynn... at the end of this, he'd better not know you're involved, not know your names or think you're dead because he'll kill ya, and then he'll go to work on ya.

    Barkley will make the Wynn pay this and more back when he uses the buffet comps dropping 400K got him.

    I'm guessing that Dwayne Wade really doesn't want to be in his five now.

    Wynn eats Barkley's cheesesteak.

    It would appear that Charles had established a reasonable track record for paying back/redeeming markers in the past.

    This episode would appear to put a crimp in that.

    Creditworthiness is creditworthiness, in any guise.

    Can you imagine if they took care of this the old-fashioned way and took him out to sea?

    I love to play blackjack and craps when I'm in a town where those things are legal, but how do you lose $400,000? I mean, what's he doing, playing blackjack for $5,000 a hand?

    If not playing every spot for that amount.

    Doesn't take much of a bad streak to go through your daily $200K allowance, at those levels.
