    Ben Affleck in Washington, D.C., in February.

    If you can’t beat him, boot him. That seems to be the response of casinos when Ben Affleck starts gambling. A few months ago, you’ll recall, the Hollywood homeboy was sent packing from the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas after security caught the Cambridge-bred actor counting cards. (It’s not illegal, but the practice of counting high and low cards at the blackjack table in an attempt to decrease risk is frowned upon by casino bosses.) Well, according to, it happened again, at Caesars Windsor Hotel and Casino in Ontario, near where Affleck is filming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Affleck played cards for about 20 minutes before being asked to leave.
