Stu Unger – Tales Of A Card Counting Poker Savant

Mike Sexton retells a piece of poker history.

It’s another episode of Grandpa Mike’s fireside chats with the rest of the partypoker pros. In this episode, poker ambassador Mike Sexton remembers a visit to one of Bob Stupak's joints in the old days when legendary degen Stu Ungar was looking to get a little action at the blackjack tables.

Banned from just about all the casinos when it came to playing 21, Ungar tried to talk Bob into letting him play a little at his place. Instead, Bob Stupak had a different offer…a 10K bet that tested the legendary photographic memory of the World Series of Poker champion.

Pretty cool story, bro.

Make sure you catch Mike, Vince and the whole World Poker Tour team at the Borgata Poker Open this week from the Borgata Hotel and Casino.
