Did anyone with more that 2 brain cells to rub together really expect anything else? In the frontier west gambling was a popular profession, every hamlet, village and town had gambling halls, few if any ran fair games. There was one popular degenerate gambler that worked the circuit. He would clean out the locals regularly. I mean take their money, their horse, livestock and farm. One of the marginally more ethical gamblers observed this and asked “How can you clean them out some completely, don’t you ever feel guilty” the degenerate gambler responded “some people are too stupid to have money”. Kind of sums it up.
