Debate Club: “I Detest Watching People Debate Just For The Sake Of It”

Swapping Food Poisoning For a Slight Hangover and Empty Pockets

Posted

And so ends another trip to the Borgata in New Jersey. It seems to be becoming a tradition – go to Atlantic City, have an enormous amount of fun, make no money and head home. Eh, there could be worse traditions. When I used to go to the Bahamas for poker tournaments, my ‘tradition’ was […]
