Tunica, MS – Wow, finally a little justice in the Magnolia State for one of poker’s career criminals.

Local player Dee McBrayer has been sentenced to life without parole for committing the greatest crime a low-stakes player can commit: refusing to chop a low-stakes tournament.

The tournament in question was the 10 AM $65 Deepstack at the Horseshoe Casino in Robinsonville, MS. The tournament featured 60,000 in starting chips with blinds going up every 8 seconds and late registration available until the earth crashes into the sun.

Upon reaching the final table of nine, the remaining players all asked in perfect unison if everyone wanted to chop. Eight nodded, but McBrayer said he would rather play it out for the $255 first place prize.

After alerting local authorities, both the FBI and National Guard swarmed the casino where they apprehended McBrayer before being met with a standing ovation from the patrons, handshakes from the staff, and comps to the buffet.

McBrayer was found guilty the next morning of 3 counts of refusing to chop, 2 counts of raising pre-flop, and 5 counts of not. He was sentenced to life in prison and quickly transferred to Guantanamo Bay if that’s even still a thing.
