I have read a great book by Micheal Craig called "The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King." Anyway, I decided to reread it last week, because I enjoyed it so much. A friend of mine was in disaggreement with me over whether or not this happens and I could not remember where the text was. Here it is.
"(Baldwin was not part of the group beacause of the obvious conflict of interest, which was also why the group played at Sam's Town, a casino mostly catering to low-stakes locals, whenever Baldwin joined the game.)"
The "conflict of interest" was the fact that Bobby Baldwin was (is?) the president at the Bellagio and the CEO of Mirage Resorts. So, the conflict would be him playing in his own casino. The big game would move to allow him to play.
