Billy the Egyptian has been playing high stakes poker games throughout Scotland and the UK for years, always seemingly winning.  SCROLL DOW FOR MORE

One grinder opined:

”I have seen this guy in action. At first I thought he was a really poor player because he was backing really outside chances. Then it dawned on me that he was a really lucky player, because despite the bad decision-making, he kept on winning. This guy has been playing in the Glasgow Cash Game for about five years.”

But now we know the true story, as confirmed by casino management and the local police.

The Scam

From PokerTube.com:

The exact details of how the scam worked are not known, but the local players are saying it involved the dealer leaving the deck undisturbed for a short period of time. Billy would always be sat in exactly the same seat relative to the dealer in every session too. One hypothesis is that a tiny camera on a device would read an electronically marked deck of cards and feed that information to a mobile phone with an earpiece. The player would then have an incredible advantage on the other players, but this is, of course, still conjecture.

Billy's real identity has not been revealed to the public though police are believed to know who he is.  Reports suggest he is back in London working as a businessman.  No arrests have been made as of Friday.
