What's next, World Series of Poker dealers wearing armor? 

Semi Pro poker player Thang Luu reportedly broke the hand of a dealer on Saturday.

From 4Flush.com:

There's two players in this hand, seat one against Thang Luu in seat nine. The hand goes all the way to a showdown, when the player in seat one tells the dealer he cannot see the player in Thang Luu's cards. The dealer takes the cards from Luu, and slides them closer to the player in seat one. According to reports, Luu then balled his hand into a fist... and smashed the dealer's hand, breaking it.

Luu was removed from the room following the incident and reportedly banned from the Rio Hotel and Casino, owned by Harrah's and host location of the 2009 World Series of Poker. 

Reports say the bones between the dealer's knuckles and wrist was broken.

Police were still investigating the incident, according to 4Flush.com. 

Thang Luu won a bracelet at the Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better (Event 3) and the $263,190 that went with it.  He cashed out at two 2009 WSOP events total and has won $743,667 in career live tournaments to date.
