Conviction of Memphis casino cheat Richard 'Mr. Casino' Taylor upheld on appeal in Connecticut

A Connecticut appeals court has upheld the 2009 conviction of casino cheat and former Memphian Richard Taylor, who is serving a 10-year sentence for a 2007 scam in which casino employees placed illegal bets on his behalf. To jog your memory:

Authorities say Taylor and his group were responsible for nearly $70,000 in losses at Connecticut's Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun.

Taylor dubbed himself "Mr. Casino," and was described in court records as a professional gambler who made his living through high-stakes gambling nationwide.

This guy shouldn't have involved casino employees in his scheme to defraud the casino. This looks like it was just a scam and really not someone that was skilled at cheating the casino by counting cards or using a hidden gambling device.
