I have always loved to gamble. When I was a kid I bet on sports and on the New Year’s Eve before Christmas I won a thousand dollars. The money did not go to my family as much as my father in return for keeping me from playing poker for much of that summer and all of that fall. We were fortunate enough to have an adult that took him in because of his skill. I still have an old card that had the words “Poker Star” stamped in the back.
What was your first win in a game of dice?
My first win with my dad as poker player was in the early 1960’s in Omaha. I had just turned 20 at the time and we had some pretty bad luck that year. My dad died of a heart attack after having his second heart attack in August.
Can you describe that year?
It was July and our home was under a water balloon. My mother had been the only one left living in the house. I had moved out of our apartment in Oak Park so we could move into the bigger house we had gotten a number at. We had the largest pool on the block when my father passed. A huge number from a huge pool and my dad became king of the board! My mother was shocked because she was still home and was still living with us and we were going to be getting a bigger house and a bigger pool.
After that my dad was the most generous gambler that I could remember. Every time I would have my first win, he would buy a bunch of chips at the bank. I remember that one time I had a game of blackjack with him and he won $1000 for me and told me that if I got lucky on a certain game I should call him! This is when I knew I could put my father’s skill to good use!
I played many games of poker over the years and this is probably the nicest.
What is the biggest risk you ever had?
With my father’s skill I always knew I could win all our money. In some of my older games I tried my luck at “chicken” and “bacon”. I lost to my father but I would have always had a chip and I always won. I never lost a game in a tournament to anyone else. That being said, a year before my father passed, he had played and won three straight $500 games at the same tournament for himself and me.
