A Sydney, Australia gambler played his own version of 99 bottles of beer on the wall while he was playing poker at the Star City Casino on New Year’s. The player got about halfway there before the floor manager kicked him off of the tables. Apparently, the unidentified poker player was falling asleep at the table when he was told to cash out or get out.

Unfortunately for the Star City Casino, the story doesn’t end here though after it was revealed that the player drank 42 beers during the 17-hour session. A letter written by the Star City Casino staff was leaked to the Casino Liquor and Gaming Control Authority, which has the casino facing up to a $10,000 fine.

As you might have guessed, it’s illegal for a casino to keep serving a gambler when they’re completely wasted. Of course, as the Star City staff tells it, they didn’t realize the player was drunk until towards the end of play. Their letter claimed, “The nature of poker is that players tend to be . . . very controlled in their facial expressions and body movements. This level of control means that many of the visible signs that a person . . . is affected by alcohol may be minimized.”

Poker face or not, any average man who drinks 42 beers during a single session is going to be looking a little sh**faced after a while. And I don’t care how good you are at concealing you have the nuts……42 beers will make anyone lose their poker face.

Since the lengthy drinking binge, three Star City Casino employees have already been fired because of this incident. I can’t blame Star City since their waiters should have finally gotten the clue after the 40th or 41st beer (probably much sooner) that they were serving a man who was totally blitzed.
