You might think gambling is all about winning, but a range of studies show that things just aren’t that simple. Why do gamblers, even unsuccessful ones, keep getting a buzz?

Griffin Benger has won millions of dollars playing online poker as "Flush_Entity" but before he got his start in poker he was already traveling the world, competing as a world-class Counter-Strike pro.

By Lauren LowenthalTurn off your TV. Skip your tennis game. Cancel dinner plans, and your plans with the kids. They are lucky you’re coming home at all. Philando Castile was killed for nothing, by public servants. If he were not black, he’d be alive. We all did that... - The Buffalo News

Busting Vegas : As the casino’s racks of $5,000 and $25,000 chips were being depleted and refilled, phones rang in the gaming pit. Edgy casino personnel crowded the table. Sun* recalls six men in suits watching her intensely. When a partner failed to bet quickly enough, she grabbed his chips and made the wager herself. Sun wanted to get through the eight-deck stack of 416 cards before ARIA Resort & Casino personnel could recognize what was going on. She feared that their play would be discovered and “that they wouldn’t let me cash my chips.” Sun ended the game prematurely — but ahead by $1,100,000 ($1.1 mil).

- At the cashier’s cage, she pressed the casino employees, whose hands she says were trembling, to hurry and convert the chips to dollars. Few gamblers take such substantial sums in cash, usually preferring a check instead.

Over the coming week, Sun and her highly organized group used the same strategy to beat more Las Vegas casinos, including Treasure Island Hotel & Casino and Caesars Palace. They made a trip to Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. Eventually Sun recruited the celebrity poker pro Phil Ivey who is also known as a high-stakes gambler at Craps and Baccarat. During the next year, he wired seven-figure sums to various casinos and did the betting. Sun did the Edge sorting of the cards and tipped Phil off whether to wager on banker or player. Their combined winnings in Atlantic City, New Jersey, London, United Kingdom and other places were in the eight figures.

Over the course of four sessions of gambling at private tables at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City alone, the pair won $9,600,000 ($9.6 mil).

*Cheung Yin Sun. is known for having won more than $20,000,000 ($20 mil) from casinos in less than five years. Elite Western gamblers and rattled casino bosses know her as Kelly, a fast-talking, sunglasses-wearing Advantage player in her 40s. Her father, now deceased, was a wealthy factory owner based in Hong Kong. She says she lost $20,000,000 ($20 mil) of his money playing baccarat and slots. She claims to be unbothered by having blown a fortune in gambling dens around the world.

- In fact, she all but brags about her losses.
They’re not cheaters. Instead, they hone the sharpest (legal) edge they can.

It's funny how many people talk about the rich and wealthy and well educated "eggheads" in disparaging terms...but when there is a vote they don't like...all the voters are uneducated idiots.

Sneering and insulting ALL the people who vote a different way is the very definition of being snooty and a snob.

If you want to have democracy, respect the results. Otherwise, you and your ilk generate the karma for living in dictatorships.

- +Alex Lightman 

As in the States with similar excuses for the popularity of Donald Trump, the "immiseration argument" is not sufficient to explain Brexit. Actual political and economic data do not support such an interpretation.

The data say: the people who voted for Brexit are not very well educated ethno-nationalist authoritarians who are offended by the educated consensus on immigration, trade, and so-called political correctness. They support policies like death penalty and have a strong affinity with the police. Despite complaining about government spending, they love social welfare "entitlements" such as the National 'Elf and social security so long as they are given to white people, and not "undeserving" minorities.

The immiseration argument tells us more about the bien pensants who peddle it: they want an exculpatory explanation that blames an elite or capitalism. But Brexiters and Trump supporters aren't very immiserated. (The household income of a Trump supporters is nearly twice the national average.) Wage stagnation is a necessary but not sufficient condition for these revolts.

Listen to Trump and his supporters; they're very clear about what they care about. Do them the courtesy of taking them at their word.
