I don't know. Some people just don't ever see 'the obvious'.

I'm reminded of the poker player, poker blogger, drug addict for whom I tried to be a moral compass and contributor to her commissary account.

Another member of this forum had a much more customary relationship with the young lady. It seems she never did realize she was not a good poker player and she never realized that the reason for many of her drug arrests is that her own friends were setting her up so they could 'walk' on their own drug charges.


I think it's obvious that it's most likely that money wasn't what he wanted. I'm not sure what you're trying to say, but I guess you assume that he was a gambling addict. In that case, it's sad whether he had cancer or not. Anyway, don't you think that the primary drive of gambling addicts is money?

I neither stated nor assumed his behacior was addiction related. he may have simply enjoyed it. I only posted to show how people can go thru such actions and never 'see' the obvious. he may never have realized what he was doing. And I don't think gambling addicts are the least bit motivated by money, just by risk and winning.

Regardless if he was questionably a ploppy/addict, it sounds like the gentleman was a pleasant man to be around. I think that is what the OP is getting at. RIP

If you're in the casino so much, you'll know of more people whom have died over the years than you can count.

Over 20 years ago I was at an Indian casino and I just stepped into the open buffet area. On the perimeter of the buffet was the casino and machines about 50 feet away. I saw paramedics pull up to a slot machine and starting to roll an octogenarian away on a stretcher with an oxygen tank applied. Well, I started to eat my food and I think I had a stroke because everything got dimmer fading to black very fast and I had to put my head down for half an hour to recover. I couldn't even move or even yell to the paramedics 50 feet away. Almost had my last supper, and I was in my 30's.
