Can you say "I'm a dumbass for trying to cash chips I just stole 4 hours earlier?"

I could say it, but then I'd just be repeating some useless post I read on cardplayer.

The motorcycle bandit, who did this at the Bellagio poker room, a couple years back, did the same thing. He came back to the high roller poker table and tried to use the chips to gamble with. He was a poor poker player and lost them in the game to the tune of over $100,000. Then he went to poker forums online and tried to sell the $25,000 cranberry colored chips at a discont under the username "Cranberry Spray". Silly guy.
