The Wager

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 difficult to not self-destruct along the way, because in his business, being wrong equals a situation worse than death. It’s the kind of art that’s painted in scars, and his canvas has been completely covered for quite some time. But as long as there’s that one chance; that sliver of a hope that will turn everything upside-down, then he thinks what he does is worth it, even if that means being alone for the rest of his life.
