An old rule of thumb for poker players is “keep your hands off casino games."
Pit games have been the downfall of many a poker pro over the years and will continue to be until the sun itself burns out.
While 2016 WSOP Main Event champion Qui Nguyen prefers the Baccarat tables, others can’t resist taking a spin on the dangerous Blackjack tables.
In our video of the week one of these players sits down with $19,000 in front of him and you can guess what happens.
Off He Goes with $19,000
The online nickname of the player in question is ThanosBoSs and he’s just logged in to a Live Casino on his Twitch.tv stream.
In this casino he's playing online but still has a live dealer dealing the cards.
ThanosBoSs brings a bankroll that many players need a lifetime to build. He has $19,000 to play with and off he goes.
In a Poker Game You'd Call It Tilt
Basically it all goes downhill from the start although it doesn’t look like it at first. ThanosBoSs gets dealt a solid 20 while the bank has a miserable 3, which often leads it to a low hand or a bust.
Eventually, though, the money moves over to the bank and it looks like our hero is unable to recover from this blow.
In a poker game you’d say the guy went on tilt. And although he does manage to get some of his money back temporarily, his downfall is no stranger to poker players.
He tries to win his money back before he stops. The game ends not with a whimper but with a bang and we can all relate to it because there is a little bit of ThanosBoSs in each and every one of us.
Enjoy a little virtual foray into the world of Blackjack - and remember to stick to poker.
