Professional Poker Player Injured in Las Vegas Casino Attack
Las Vegas is a great travel destination. Our city boasts some of the nicest hotels, casinos, pools, nightclubs in the world. People travel here to enjoy our outstanding weather, to gamble and to party with abandon. Unfortunately, however, sometimes the good times in Vegas can come to a violent end. After the UK’s Sam Trickett came in second in the recent World Series of Poker Tourney held Las Vegas Rio casino and hotel, he and his girlfriend were attacked by six men who he says also spit on his girlfriend, Natasha Sandhu. While obviously Mr. Trickett’s attackers bear responsibility for the Southern Nevada personal injury, the Rio Hotel and Casino could also be held responsible for the Las Vegas casino injury.
Mr. Trickett bought into the World Series of Poker Tour event with $1 million. He eventually came in second in the tournament and won $10.1 million! The English former plumber doesn’t believe the attack was a mugging for his poker winnings, instead, he believes it was a random act of violence that can occur when people have been over served. Nevada law requires bartenders and venues where alcohol are served to not continue to serve visibly intoxicated patrons.
