For him, the most addicting thing about gambling is the moment where he’s proved right. And he loves nothing more, because he’s been wrong about so many choices he’s made in the past that for once, he wants to show the world that too many wrongs can eventually make a right.

It’s the kind of art that’s painted in scars, and his canvas has been completely covered for quite some time.
