2006, Harrah's New Orleans:
I'm 21, not a professional poker player yet, went on tilt before I knew what tilt was and decided to self-exclude lifetime. This exclusion extends to all Caesar's properties.
Despite the ban I put in, after a few months I started showing up again to Harrah's New Orleans. I purposely mucked a bad beat jackpot hand worth about $4k (to me) because of the ban.
I hired an attorney to make contact with the VP of legal affairs for Caesars, but the response we received was...
"I represent Harrah's.
As you know, Mr. XXX signed self exclusion papers some time ago. That to which your client affixed his signature does not permit nor offer the opportunity to receive reinstatement and Harrah's declines your client's request. He is, and forever will remain, permanently barred from entering the premises of any Harrah's casino. For your information, I have attached a list of all of Harrah's currently owned and operated casinos. I trust that you will advise your client accordingly. Should your client be found on the premises of any Harrah's casino, that casino will immediately seek all legal means to have your client removed from said premises. Thank you for your attention to this matter."
Moved to Vegas for poker full time, but while visiting New Orleans, I cashout over 3k and they asked for my ID (oops). Cashier picks up phone and I knew I was done. Shortly after, security showed me the door and they confiscated the full cashout. I later was able to retrieve my initial buyin back from Caesars by providing details of my exact buyin and times (the form you sign says they confiscate winnings).
I email every gaming attorney in NV asking for advice on this situation. Shortly after, I receive a certified letter from Caesar's saying they know what I'm trying to do and that they are on high alert for any sign of me entering a property.
I've searched for and asked for advice on 2p2 before without success. Does anyone have any ideas or know a gaming attorney I could hire? The only thing I could think of is changing my name and social security number but I have a hard time believing that that will cover all my bases like if I were to win a big bad beat or a bracelet.
