Re: Loan Sharks

I know a few "Loan Sharks" that ran thru "Skinny Joe" in Philly......
The Vig was unfuckin believable. I knew a guy that was in the hole about 9k.
Some of the muscle came thru to collect and like a jackass he ran....He got away. 3 days later they found him walking outta a bar off of Aramingo, Cut the dudes achilles tendon with a fuckin swithblade.
Needless to say, he didnt run away again....or should i say, couldnt.

I.D. What happened? Lose your ass? There's gotta be a better way than a loan shark.. Unless you like your toes smashed with an axehandle..

Re: Loan Sharks

I'd recommend against it, no real stories to share but its definetely not a good choice in my opinion.

If your having a tough time Identity don't force the issue. Maybe even step away from the industry for awhile and take a break.. who doesn't need a break once and awhile anyways, I take them fairly routinely. Unless you go on an amazing run off of the start and double your bankroll (paying off the loan shark and being up money) which I must say doesn't happen a whole lot it would likely get you into a lot of trouble. I also am a firm believer in the fact that playing with scared money is never a good choice. Poker is the same in the fact that the people who are used to playing at 0.50/1 and decide to play a night at 3/6 don't generally win. They are playing a game which they shouldn't be in the first place because their bankroll simply can't handle it. I will not lie, I played it many games which were "over my head" before, but everyone learns from their mistakes and this is one I will not make again. Playing out of your bankroll is never a good idea.

Not saying I am a great person to chime in on the topic because I honestly never borrowed money from a "loan shark" before; just thought I would chime in a few words.

Best Advice. Sometimes the best thing is a "break" I mean you can still cap games and get sharper again. Then come back refreshed and go on a big run. Or go small and thus doing so, with like $100 bucks and see how fun you can run it ......... when you have just that much money you will make well informed picks believe me. :cheers

Re: Loan Sharks

2 pennies worh, but heartfelt.

If you are considering a loan shark. Ist go to the party you owe and make an offfer to pay over time. If that is not even an option --get yourself into a rehab center!
One in Ohio and another one I forget where. This is supposssed to be enjoyable-not life threatening!
