The game was chip toss. They picked a line on the carpet and stood about twelve feet away. The stakes - $5,000 chips. Whoever tossed the chip closest to the line got to keep his opponent's.
Nguyen must have practiced this before. His first toss couldn't have been more centered on the line had he walked up and placed it there. Score one for Nguyen.
The second toss wasn't as good for Scotty but Flack's was even worse. Nguyen 2 - Flack 0.
Flack needed to return to his table so in one final desperate move he doubled up the stakes. One toss for $10,000.
Scotty's toss was good - about six inches from the line. Flack's toss went up into the air and began to roll. It stopped when it hit an observer's foot which happened to be right on the line.
Just like that Flack was back to even. Scotty looked at the observer in despair.
"Awww, why you have to do, do, do that baby?" he asked.
Better luck next time Scotty.
