I’m positive you’ll have discovered poker testimonies in this way earlier…
A gambler is therefore into a game but eventually ends up with a poor streak. He also loses his cool and can be desperate to make a comeback, convinced that the next hand will probably be THE hands to create him. So there he can, without a more money to put on the desk. What does he do? He stakes something else of significance.
Try to remember the most current James Bond flick, which I actually branded a poker movie in an article only not long ago? Keep in mind that poker game between that Greek man and Agent 007? The different guy stakes his carsure that he would triumph. I think it had been an Alfa Romeo, I am not sure, my memory can be actually a bit hazy (all I can remember is Daniel Craig as James Bond). Anyhow, Bond wins the hand and also the car, naturally BandarQ.
The inquiry is, will that really happen in real life?
You better believe it does!
Take a look at this news clip out of Avanova.com:
A Russian man missing his spouse in a match of cards afterwards setting up her up as a stake instead of cash. Andrei Karpov, from Murmansk, had run out of dollars within a game of poker and also offered his own rival his spouse instead of cash to keep within the overall game.
After Karpov dropped the match and his opponent, Sergey Brodov, turned up to maintain his winnings,” his spouse Tatiana was angry she chose to divorce her husband and started a relationship with Brodov.
She’s since married Brodov, and claimed she does not regret leaving her first partner.
She stated:”It had been gruesome and I had been utterly ashamed. However, right because my exhusband did this I knew I needed to leave him.
“Sergey has been a very handsome, charming male and I am really happy with him, even if he did’triumph’ me in a poker game.”
Talk about crazy! In this day and age you’d feel that putting up a person as your own bet would not be possible! When you think about it, however, the full lot sounds humorous, does it not? I mean that it irks me that a guy would wager his wife as though he”owned” her (as though a individual can actually own another person). On the other hand, the spouse leaving him marrying the different man – I’m sorry but this simply sounds just like some thing from the soap opera, or something out of your Middle Ages!
No wonder those who’re not into poker watch it at a bad light the majority of time. Once they listen to or see news such as this, their eyes almost certainly pop out in wonder, or maybe they shake their head in dismay. Then again, this took place in Russia, at which norms might be different from that of those US or some European nations. This gets me consider Borat, you realize that”Khazakstan journalist.” ? It truly is like something he’d perform. I expect that I have not offended anybody with my musings within this article. I just discovered it quite funny.
So guys, the next time you decide to set your own wife for a bet, make sure you win. Normally, you might just end up inside the divorce courts!
