    I always do a multi-team parlay or two in the opening weeks of CFB... when a lot of easy blowouts happen.

    Won $2,200 this year. done for a while.

    Won like $100 on a parlay then lost it all on BlackJack at the online casino

    I felt a rush
    Never really gambled irresponsibly again after that

    I got a straight flush playing Caribbean Stud Poker at the Aladdin, ad won $8700 from the progressive jackpot (10%)--I would have won $87,000 with the Royal

    Playing $1 - $2 no limit hold 'em at hollywood Casino in Charlestown, WV. Guy under the gun raises to $12 I call from middle position with pocket 5's and the button calls behind me. Flop comes A-5-2 rainbow..first to act the initial raiser bets $25. I put him on A-k and raise him to $75. The guy behind me goes into the tank and goes all in. back to the guy in first position..he thinks and thinks and calls the All -In. I'm sure I have them both with my set of 5s but i still think about it just in case one of them flopped the straight which seemed doubtful. I made the call first guy flips over A-K and the other guy flips over A-Q. The river comes and it's an 8. I tell the dealer do not put up an 8 or ace on the river. The river comes and it's a blank. I drag in an $800 pot and tip the dealer $20. Ended the night with a trip to the buffet and I bought for my friend who lost his money that day.

    Wish I was a low roller back in the day. I tallied up my bets one year. I bet (not won or lost) around 1 million.Around 3,000 a day,365 days a year. Thats just sports. The casino was crazier,since new hands at blackjack come every few minutes.

    My buddy and i were making our rounds to a bunch of home and underground poker games in the greater NYC area trying to win back enough money to pay back this guy with ties to the KGB that we were in debt to. Ended up at a pretty high stakes table run by a bunch of cops. We were doing our usual hustle and pretending not to know eachother. I was owning these guys but my buddy decides to get extra greedy and starts dealing me aces from the bottom of the deck. We get caught and the cops beat the shit out of us and took all the money we won previously in other games.

    There is way more to the story but I don't have time to tell it all. Plus I am thinking about talking to someone to make the whole thing a movie.
