quote:Kerry Packer is known for not wanting to gamble around other gamblers. A story circulated after one of Packer's trips to Las Vegas that while he was playing in the high-limit pit in the Bellagio, a gambler at another table was being particularly obnoxious. Packer suffered the boorish player in silence for a while. Finally, he got up, walked over, and asked the man to pipe down.
The man looked at Packer, incredulous that anyone would dare address someone of his caliber and standing in such a manner. "Do you know who I am?" he demanded.
"No," Packer replied.
"I'm [so and so] from Texas and I'm worth fifty million dollars!"
Packer cocked an eyebrow, shrugged, and said, "I'll flip you for it."
