ChangeYourTree, I completely understand, gambling can be distructive ...
That's why I only play poker -- I ignore every other table games where I'm playing against the house.
Hmmm .... but it's best not to judge what other people do. Some people can have the discipline and self-control to gamble and make money playing pokers, some don't.
I did this experiment so I can see where I went, better then pondering at the sideline, ya know.
