Let me tell you about a person I once knew who like to play card games for money, he like to gambol, my friend Bob had a problem because he like to gambol at all costs he will play at any time and at any press, to take part in game such as poker, my friend would have to * up, he would have to pay a small amount of money at the beginning of the game.

Bob always played with cold hard cash only corns and dollar bills, sometime my friend would clean up, he would win a lot of money on one card game, he like to tell me that one day he would break the bank, what feeling it must be to win all of the money at the gamboling table.
