    That is truly an amazing story. I can't even imagine what his thinking might have been to try that! :eek:

    Probably spent too much time at Wimbley Stadium. :)

    I can see doing it. What all does he really lose? Just stuff. He's young, he can work. Panhandle for clothes money. It might be interesting to start from scratch.

    If it was a single green table the odds wern't really against him. Not exactly 50-50 but damn close. Now if he had put it on a 4 - 2 or single number square, now that would have been impressive!!
    all in all though doubling your money, very nice indeed :D

    The odds are 48-50 for what he did. Not really bad odds but he had a slightly higher chance of losing.

    Personally, I wouldn't do such a thing, but congrats to him.

    He shouldn't have bet it all. He should have saved $300 for a gun and one round, just incase it landed on black. ;)

    "I like to do things properly," he said.


    I guess that sums it up nicely :)
