EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) - A well-known professional gambler accused of cheating at cards at a San Diego-area casino has been extradited from Nevada to California.

The San Diego County district attorney's office says 62-year-old Archie Karas won more than $8,000 in July by marking blackjack cards at the Barona Casino. He was arrested at his Las Vegas home in September.

Karas is a high-stakes gambler known for a winning streak from 1992 to 1995 that earned him $40 million at Las Vegas tables before he gambled it away.

Prosecutors said Friday that he faces nearly four years in prison if convicted.
