Name: Chris Luhning
Home Town: Kansas City, MO
Age: 49
Birthday: August 5th
Family: Married (at Royals Stadium)
Occupation: Poker Room Manager / Casino Operations Scheduler - Harrah's Casino, Kansas City
Brush with fame: Dealt craps to Derrick Thomas, Dan Marino, Jerry Rice, Bruce Smith, Chester McClockten, Thurman Thomas and a few other NFL greats.
Anecdote: "A buddy of mine was supervising a craps game with about six Bluejays playing. One was Alex Gonzalez. I had Alex on my fantasy baseball team. The supervisor told Alex that I was disappointed in his play so far this year. Alex came up, introduced himself and said he'd try and play better for me.  All I could manage to say was, "Ahhh, your doing ok.". A very embarrassing moment.

I'll give you one more. Bryan Rekar, pitcher for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays was in this summer. I was supervising the high limit blackjack section when I picked up his players card (used by the casino for comps). I recognized the name (since he's on my team) and told him he had pitched a hell of a game tonight. He had pitched a complete game 3 hitter, just giving up a homerun in the ninth. I bullshitted with him for a few hours.  I found out that he and a group of the Devil Rays play fantasy baseball and football. I told him I had him on my DMB team. He didn't know what DMB was, but said it sounded pretty cool. Anyway, I gave him my business card with my email address on it and told him to email me sometime. He never has...but I'm still waiting."
