Two interesting stories to be told. The first is about legendary gambler Archie Karas (born Anargyros Karabourniotis) who is in prison awaiting charges relating to cheating at blackjack and the news that there is a betting shop worker who claims to be the newest and greatest Poker Totty yet to be discovered.
Archie Karas is a bloke all gamblers aspire to be.. He turned $50 into $40 million dollars in the betting variance of all betting variance. To do this he played poker, dice and pool amassing the fortune all in the space of 6 months. However, since he has a self-confessed low regard for money, he has won and loss millions over the year and now is under heavy investigation for cheating at blackjack.
As of now charges have not been made and under the laws of natural justice a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Which brings me to the challenge I had while drinking with a ‘Patrician’ lady who works in a betting office. Now when is having a drink one does here stories about daring do’s, but this one seemed different and the vigour of her language made it impossible for me not to take notice. therefore I have decided to take notice and will be filling you in with more details as and when I get it.
