They also told me a story about a guy recently that bought in with a 25K marker and was down $8,000 and he said he wasn't leaving until he made his 8K back. He lost $100,000 trying to win back his $8,000
I was also on a craps table with this high roller that had $2,000 on every number and $5,000 in odds behind his $100 passline bet and the table was just point-7, point-7. As a joke I told him to make a $500 Come bet, a reference to the opening scene in the movie The Gambler where Axel makes a $500 come bet and they roll aces. He puts $500 on the come, and they roll a 7 so he won his $500 come bet but lost about $15K in action.
Folks who constantly throw huge bets at those sucker side bets like the Tie, Pairs, Panda 8 and Dragon 7.
I remember the first time I saw a huge number of brownies disappear at a low limit table at the Wynn in December 2012. With the amount that Euro whale lost one could go ahead and buy a new Ferrari!
This is a really sad discussion. I only enjoy watching people lose money when they are good sports about it.
I only enjoy watching people lose money when they're being jerks about it. When people are such good sports is when I pain for them the most.
I never enjoy watching people lose money that they had no business gambling with in the first place. This often happens to people who believe (falsely) in systems and find out the hard way that they don't work.
This I will +1.
We kept playing for a while, then went and played something else, then saw her over at a craps table. We went over to have some more fun, and got there just in time to see her toss her last $100 on boxcars. She shrugged, pushed away from the table and stumbled away. This was at Caesar's AC, or maybe Tropicana. I got the feeling she was a known actor there.
