Currently, I tend to play poker online, but a few years ago, once in a poker tournament I was lucky, I won a tournament and some money. When the smoke cleared, it was 2 or 3 in the morning, and I was paid $ 1,000 for the accumulated prize. I felt very good, but I had a small problem. Even though I stayed at the Four Queens, I did not have a safe. I, however, had one in Horseshoes, which I held throughout the year. This saved me time and trouble getting a safe every time I came to play in a tournament at several Las Vegas casinos.
Therefore, since I did not want to save around $ 1,000 in my pocket, I knew I had to go down the street to Horseshoes to put my money in my box. This is not a problem at the moment, but, as I said, there were many unwanted characters who inhabited the city center at that time, and let’s say there was little or no security.
I did not think much about it until I went outside.
Then I realized how dark it was, and with the street boiled there were no cars or people. In addition, a light mist fell. I was tired and I thought, “Oh, damn it, right on the other side of the road, less than a quarter.” Then, I started my short walk.
It was the moment when I wanted him to play poker online, and not on the streets, like crazy!
As soon as I approached the corner, two big hard guys came around the corner. They both had beer bottles and they looked very drunk and were looking for trouble. As soon as they saw me, I knew what would happen. I was sure they were looking for brochures or, with someone else, maybe worse.
As I continued walking, they approached me, as if they were going to block what was left of the pavement.
When they walked a few meters away from me, one of the boys asked: “Hey, do you have a couple of dollars?”
Now, I think if I were an honest person, I would say, “Well, yes, I actually won a big agen poker tournament and got about $ 1,000 in my pocket, will there be enough $ 2?” But instead, I stopped and I said very loudly: “Hey, no … with me! I just lost $ 25 there!” They both looked at me and parted like little coots as I passed them.
