Default FYI, for the Copag crowd I saw them in a casino for the first time

Was in Vegas yesterday and played in Harrah's day tournament. I was surprised to see that they used Copags, to my knowledge this is the first time I've seen them used by a casino. I asked the dealer about it and he said they'd been using them for about a month and that they were much better than the previous cards (he didn't know the brand, but they were not KEM).

After reading all of the "Copag vs. KEM" threads thought I'd share it with the group.

Were they stock Copags or Harrah-branded?

They are not Harrah's branded but I doubt they are stock cards you could buy off the shelf. I personally did not like them when I was at Harrah's two weaks ago.

They were using stock Copags when I was at the Aladdin about a month ago as well. Actually one of the exact same sets as I own...

Well at the table I saw them at, there was an automatic shuffler which also counts the cards. The dealer would know immediately if there was suddenly an extra card in the deck, and I doubt you would be able to explain yourself out of the video from which they'd be sure to observe you cheating...

In blackjack you are stealing from the Casino - in poker you are stealing from someone other than the casino.
