Last week (Friday May 1st) I was up Fallsview Casino playing poker and saw Brody Jenner and his boys playing some $2/5 nl. They just came from drinking the night away at Dragonfly Nightclub (located on the side entrance of the casino). Brody was promoting the club and getting an appearance fee for his time. I had just finished playing some $5/10 NL when my table broke.
I decided to shoot some $5/5 nl (I wasn’t in the mood to leave yet) when I saw Jenner and about three or four others that were with him sitting at the $2/5 nl table ($300 max game). It must have been after 3am.

I told a girl I knew that Jenner was playing and she went over to say hello (she was a big fan of The Hills). He gave her the cold shoulder and remarked “who is Brody Jenner” when she came over. I was a bit shocked that he would be such a dick to a fan. But then again I guess he gets that all the time. Anyways … on to the good part of the story. His crew was very loud and it seemed to me that they did not respect the players at the table. You could tell by looking at the table from a few tables away that these guys did not have any sort of poker etiquette. They were high fiving each other when they won pots etc. I don’t think any of those guys cared if they won or lost any money. The stakes just didn’t mean much to them.
Getting on to the drama. After about an hour or so of them playing I saw Jenner and this Asian fellow get into an altercation. Apparently the Asian fellow wanted to take Jenner outside. Both Jenner and the Asian fellow started swearing and threats were uttered (I can’t confirm what was being said as I was sitting 2 tables behind them). The floor quickly kicked the Asian fellow out and asked Jenner to leave as well. Jenner seemed to be on the defensive side. Him and his boys continued to utter that they did nothing wrong. The floor took Jenner aside and told him that he had to leave the poker room. He was arguing with the floor for about 25 minutes before security showed up. Jenner kept on bringing one of the waitress’s over to help back his story up. After talking to security for another 30 minutes Jenner and his boys finally decided to leave the casino.
I thought the whole incident was quite comical. It was like the cameras were on Jenner and his crew and they needed to create drama for TV. Oh and if you check out Jenner’s twitter page he makes a comment on the incident: “WOW!!!!! Great times last night.. Except for the death threat hahahaha Words of advice.. If you get a bad beat in poker deal with it!” source: http://twitter.com/BrodyJenner/status/1680298394
