poker and morals? What would you do?
Walking into my weekly invite game. Plays big there is a full kill, and its a mixed game, we play horse plus crazy pineapple. I have talked about this game before, there are no soft seats among the weely regulars. Occasionally a seat opens and we see a tourist or someone fill the spot.
My wie has a friend who is engaged. Ive met the guy a few times and he is nice enough. Between the parking garage, and the casino is a mall. I run into this guy, and while we are getting caught up he explains that he is there to purchase the rings, and is expecting his fiance to meet him in an hour. He asks where I'm headed. I tell him I'm going to play poker, he says great I'll join you. Umm...ok whatever.
He proceeds to lose at the fastest rate possible. I soon realize that this person has a very unhealty relationship with gambling. I have seen gambling addiction a few times, and this had all of the ear marks.
I could already hear it. My wife yelling at me for bringing this guy in over his head, while he was being a good boy waiting for his fiance. How dare I take advantage of this guy, and bring him into that game with those people etc.
So I got heads up with him, made a move at the flop with the up and down nuts. Turn my cards face up, bet, and tell him it is time for him to go.
In other words I just kicked the fish out of the game...
What do you all think?
