Antoine Walker doesn’t know when to hold or fold ‘em


Note to Antoine Walker, the former NBA star who owes three Las Vegas casinos $822,500:

When your card has a picture on it and the dealer's has a six, you are not required to ask for another card.

"You got an ace, an eight and a seven. Well, you lose. If you would have had four fours, you would have won. You're getting good. Starting to get the hang of it. Isn't this fun? You're pretty good for a first time, really." -- Dewey "Ox" Oxberger, 1981.
