Over the summer I gambled on my Dad's ping pong abilities and won big! Read story here:
In September I received a portion, but not all of my winnings. Read story here:
To be perfectly honest, I didn't think I'd ever see the remaining $10. But last night my brother and I walked down the shore to join the boyz of summer. And when we arrived, the guy from down the shore insisted we join them for a game of Texas Hold 'Em - a game my brother and I have never played before.
We were hesitant, but the guy from down the shore pulled me aside and said, "Look, here's the deal. I know I still owe you $10 from the summer, but I will never flat out give you that money. But I will buy you into this game. So what do you say? Do you want to play?" Although I'm not into gambling, given his offer I agreed for him to buy my brother and me into the game. And so we received $10 worth of chips, and used our shared lack of knowledge to attempt to win.
I thought we'd be out rather quickly, but my brother quickly figured out the game, and how to successfully bluff . So we finished second, receiving a $10 payout for the chips. Thanks bro, for keeping our $10 alive. And thanks Dad for the $30 ping pong win.
