ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – Talk about a “royal flush” — literally!

New Jersey police say they arrested a gambler caught flushing fake poker chips in a casino toilet.

Now, why the heck would you do something like that?!

Police say Christian Lusardi of Fayetteville, North Carolina was using counterfeit chips in a weekend poker event.

He allegedly dropped more than $2 million worth of phony chips in a toilet at Harrah’s in Atlantic City.

Throwing all that money down the drain clogged sewer pipes — and the cancellation of another poker event at a nearby casino.

Wow, if that doesn’t force ya to fold, what would?
