WATCH: Pair Of Poker Room Brawls Highlight Wild Weekend At The Tables

Video Footage Of Fights At Talking Stick In Arizona And The Orleans In Las Vegas Were Released On Social Media


There was a ton of action last weekend in Arizona and Las Vegas poker rooms. Just not action in the traditional sense of betting.

Last weekend, a pair of brawls broke out in poker rooms at The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and Talking Stick Resort and Casino in Scottsdale.

Justin Pechie, a World Series of Poker bracelet winner, caught the fight at Talking Stick on film before posting it to Twitter. According to social media chatter about the post, the fight happened after a man was being kicked out of the poker room after playing $4-$8 limit hold’em.

The man wouldn’t leave the room quietly and was attacked by another player from behind. Chips went everywhere and chaos ensued.

The footage captured at The Orleans wasn’t nearly as graphic, but it eventually showed the aftermath of the fight that took place just west of the Las Vegas Strip.

A Reddit user uploaded a video showing a player being kicked out of the Orleans poker room. He is clearly still yelling at staff and players as he is leaving, but there are no punches thrown in the video. According to the Reddit poster, the man yelling at staff in the video is not the perpetrator of the assault. That person walked out of the room immediately after the assault, which is what caused the patron to start yelling.

One commenter on the video said that the man unconscious was knocked out after insulting another man’s daughter.

Towards the end of the video, you can see staff attending to a man who appears to be unconscious underneath a poker table.

Warning: This video contains graphic language.
