    would i stand back and laugh as i saw them waste their entire life? no
    would i tell their family and, if possible, notify any services which could help them after they refuse to accept my help, and then not bother anymore if they refuse the help from all of these other sources? yeah
    if they dont accept a huge support net, then i would just leave them to fail until they come knocking on my door asking for help, and i would give them that help. only if i knew that they were going to try and stop gambling and get on with their life in a productive way

    Same, this thread has given me the sudden urge to go casino and gamble.

    I may have to visit one on my next night out, nothing beats betting on a table whilst sipping on a brandy and coke:holmes:

    BET365 was enough for me BUT that sounds even better, now I feel like having a poker night.. my trick is to offer free drinks s that way people don’t say no and they’re stupid enough to play big and slip up 😏 I always play dumb, start by making losses so people think you haven’t a clue, by the end of the night I’ve won it all back and more but I make it look like pure luck! It’s a risky tactic, my dad would probably call me an idiot - and I’d agree.

    Generally speaking, against veteran players, you'd most likely get eaten alive if you employed those tactics. However, against novices, it could work

    Thing is, if people figure out you’re sly at the start they won’t trust you towards the end of the game, and the end is where people start playing big. You’re right though I would easily get defeated by veterans :laugh:
