Gotham Cops Flush Poker Club At The River

The two biggest poker clubs in the city - frequented by celebrities and card sharks - were raided by cops after investigators infiltrated the gambling dens. The illegal operations raked in millions of dollars while offering players valet parking, shoulder massages - and the chance to win big payouts, police said yesterday.

"I can't believe it," said a well-dressed 30-year-old Manhattan lawyer as he stood outside the New York Players Club on the upper West Side.

"My wife is out of town. What am I going to do now?"

After initially keeping a low-profile, the Players Club and the Play Station grew immensely popular with experienced and novice gamblers.
