re: Poker & WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Lon: "Wow Norm, woulda' thought that an amateur woulda' won the event this year?!"
Norm: "And to think he got in with just a X/XX/XXX sat. event!!"
You to buddie: "WOW, I had the time of my life!! I got to meet ___ and ___, I actually knocked out _____, but then ______ took me out when his quads took my boat... but it was GREAT!!!"
"Well, I've paid the light bill and truck bill, yeah the truck will be traded in in a few years and I'll probably move out of this house... but I have the memories of those bills."
(depending on your age/status)
"Will you marry me"
.... strike that last one... it COULD last a lifetime and it WILL cost more in the longrun
Honestly, I could use the $$ to pay bills, but if it was a buy-in + $$, I'd take the opportunity as I didn't have the $$ before anyway and now I may be passing up the chance of a lifetime. If you lose the event, put the $2K on black (4k), black (8k), red (16K), and you'll be up $4K from your original $12K
