I work in a casino. Sometime not too long ago, a young man sat at my table and over the course of the next hour we got to talking. He had just been dumped by his fiance, which in the same stroke left him homeless and with no car. Basically, he was at his lowest point. I didn't help matters by taking every dollar he had on him pretty quickly. He dejectedly left the table and I felt genuinely sorry for the kid. About 10 minutes later he returned and said that he forget he had a few dollars on his rewards card, which he cashed out. He had $34, which is just enough for a full hand on the game we were playing. (Carribean Stud; $10 ante, $20 bet and $2.50 jackpot contribution) He played his hand blind and I didn't think his luck could get any worse when I opened with a boat, Aces full on Kings. He started to walk away as I opened his hand. Ad Kd Qd Jd 10d. A royal flush! I yelled at him to turn around. He won A shade over $360,000. I guess his luck had just turned around. I know this board had every imaginable type of degenerate on it, so I imagine more than a few of you love to have a good punt.With that in mind... FOCUS: What memorable gambling stories do you have?
