According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ben Affleck has been banned for life from the blackjack tables at the Hard Rock Casino for counting cards.

Affleck, perhaps unhappy with the tepid response to his 2013 gambling flick Runner Runner, was caught red-handed by a security guard, who told him he was "too good at the game." The Argo star was in town with wife Jennifer Garner.

Though counting cards is technically legal, casinos will likely kick you out the door if they see you doing it. Thankfully for Affleck, the Hard Rock only banned him from playing blackjack. Just remember, it could have been much worse. [THR]
