gambling musings

The most dangerous happening when leaving a casino for the first time is to leave as a winner.
Anyway , poker. I wonder how many at the end of their playing lives exit ahead financially ?
So why bother : camaraderie, part of the tribe , entertainment , big fish in a small pond, cheaper than chas, a mental /psychological challenge , getting even ( ouch ),.......pick a card , look at it and put it back , I will shuffle the deck , is that the card which you chose ?
