Submission + - Creator of MS Word banned from casinos and WSOP

L. VeGas writes: "Richard Brodie, Microsoft employee number 77, creator of Microsoft Word 1.0 and professional poker player, was banned from all Harrah's casinos yesterday for winning at video poker, a game both impossible to cheat and impossible to overcome the house advantage. Since the World Series of Poker is held at the Rio, a Harrah's property, this meant he would be unable to play in the upcoming tournament. Thanks to massive public support, they have relented, and now Brodie will be playing, and I can once again live vicariously throught him."
