Poker Players,Money,Lending and Borrowing.
Now this is an interesting thread. My couple of points are:I have gambled for more than 20 years now. In all of that time I have only met 1 person (ONE - and its not me) that has been a winner over time. If you gamble you will loose - period.Im no $5 roulette player either - people that know me, know that I can punt.In NSW alone they estimate there are 200,000 problem gamblers. One of the reasons I stopped going to casino's (any why when I do I only play big limits away from the general public) was having people ask to lend money from me, having women offer to fuck / blow me for cab fare home as they have lost the family mortgage payments etc etc etc.However - The main reason I stopped going to casinos is the type of people you interact (punters and staff at times) with and the environment your in (a money orientated superfical / false world).Gamblers are like people who take drugs - you cant believe a word they say. Im always amazed how people become wankers over a little money they have won or lost. Its basicaly because they have no life. Play for fun, enjoy your poker, gamble (like drinking) never alone and always with your friends and keep it to what it should be - an enjoyable past time.
