Once a Gambler
10 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Dueling recorders might be a better name for this. The principle character has thrown everything away gambling. He has a nice girlfriend who has modest aspirations. He, however, can't quit gambling. Even if he wins, he won't quit until he loses it all. One day he helps a destitute man and the guy gives him a beat up pocket recorder. It is discovered that a person can go back as far as five seconds and repeat events. He knows he can use this to know how a hand of poker ended and then redo the final bet, even folding when it was expedient. But he lets ego and his compulsion get in the way of having the start of a great life. Even throwing away the love of his life is worth it to him.
