Gambling card games discernment

Postby Kajin В» 16.12.2019

.

In one form or another it has entered the rank and file of every department of life—in private parlor over cards; in hotel drawing-room over election reports; in college athletic grounds over brains and brawn; in the counting-room over the price of stocks; in the racing tournament over jockeying and speed; in the Board of Trade hall over future prices of the necessaries of life; in the den of iniquity at dice; in the drinking saloon at the slot-machine; in the people's fair at the wheel of fortune; in the gambling den itself at every conceivable form of swindling trick and game.

Gambling has come to be almost an omnipresent evil. In treating this subject, it is our purpose to point out something of the nature of its evil, not only that we may be kept from it but that we may save others whom it threatens to destroy. Gambling grows out of a misuse of the natural tendency to take risks.

A social vice is some social right misused. Men have the social right to congregate to talk over measures of social and economic welfare. But if they discuss measures which oppose the principles of free Government, their meeting together becomes a crime against the State. A personal vice is some personal right misused. As some one has put it, "Vice is virtue gone mad. But since justice comes before mercy, if one uses for charity that which should be used in payment of debt, his virtue of beneficence becomes a vice of theft.

So it is with gambling. It is giving the natural tendency to chance, to risk an illegitimate play. The person who is afraid to risk anything accomplishes but little in any way, is seldom a speculator, and never a gambler.

Usually the gambler is the man who is naturally full of hazard, who loves to run risks, to take chances. Nor will one find a more practical and useful tendency in one's make-up than this. See the discoverer of America and his brave crew for days and days sailing across an unknown sea toward an unknown land. But that was the price of a New World. Note the hazard and risk of our Pilgrim Fathers. But they gave to the world a new colonization.

See the Second greatest American on his knees before Almighty God, promising him that he would free four million of slaves, providing General Lee should be driven back out of Maryland. General Lee was driven back, and that immortal though most hazardous of all documents, from man's point of view, was read to his Cabinet and signed by Abraham Lincoln.

All great men have taken great risks. Not a section of the United States has been settled without some risk. No business enterprise is launched without some risk.

To secure an education, to learn a trade, to marry a wife, all involve some risk, much risk. The tendency to risk, to hazard, to chance it is a practical and useful tendency. Only let this tendency be governed always by wisdom and justice. No person ever became a gambler until consciously or unconsciously he forfeited wisdom and justice in his chances and risks.

Gambling takes a variety of forms. First of all is the professional gambler. He has no other business. His investment is a "pack of cards" and a box of "dice. See him with his long, slender fingers; with his shaggy, unkempt hair; with keen eyes, and a sordid countenance.

He is prepared to "rake in" a thousand dollars a night, and would not hesitate to strip any man of his fortune. The professional is found at county fairs, on railway trains, in gilded dens, and at public resorts. Being a professional outlaw, and subject at any time to arrest and imprisonment, usually he has an accomplice. Sometimes a gang work together, so that it is with perfect ease they may relieve any unwary novice of his money.

They know human nature on its low, mercenary side, and soon can find their man in a crowd. But few persons have started out in life having it for their aim to get something for nothing who, sooner or later, have not been "taken in" by this gang of swindlers.

They know their kind. The end of the professional gambler is final loss and ruin. Then he will borrow some money and start anew. Like the winebibber and the professional murderer, the professional gambler has his den. Not a large city in the world is without these haunts of vice.

Who is it that feeds and supports them? The novice at cards and dice, husbands and sons of respectable families, just as the occasional dram-taker supports the saloon. As one has asked:. The penny novice seeks the penny gambling den. The aristocratic speculator seeks the gilded gambling den. The expert trickster of large luck and large fortune makes his way to Monte Carlo, the gambling Mecca of the world.

Monte Carlo is a famous resort situated in the northwest part of Italy. It is notorious for its gambling saloon. This city of nearly four thousand inhabitants is located in Monaco, the smallest independent country in the world. Monaco is about eight miles square, and lies on a "barren, rocky ridge between the sea and lofty, almost inaccessible rocks. For centuries the inhabitants, the Monagasques, lived by marauding expeditions, both by sea and land, and by slight commerce with Genoa, Marseilles, and Nice.

But in the last century the people have converted their country and city into a world-wide resort. In , M. Blanc, a famous gambler and saloon proprietor of two German cities, went to Monaco, and for an immense sum of money received sole privilege to convert their province into a gambler's paradise.

Soon immense marble buildings arose in the midst of such beauty as to make it a modern rival of the gardens of ancient Babylon. Costly statues, gorgeous vases, graceful fountains, elegant basins, and beautiful terraces, all of which are made alluring by blooming plants, by light illuminations, and by free concerts of music day and night,—these are the attractions in this gambler's paradise.

Here fortunes are won and lost in a night. For, as has been sung,. Then we have the speculator in commerce. He is the denizen of the Board of Trade hall. He speculates on the prices of next week's, of next month's meat and breadstuffs. And still this sort of gambler may be a book-keeper in a bank, a farm hand, or a clerk in a grocery store. It ha become so simple and so common a practice for persons to speculate on the markets that any person with ten dollars, or twenty-five dollars, or a hundred dollars may take his chances.

Tens of thousands of dollars to-day are being swept into this silent whirlpool, the gambler's commerce. Also we have the pool gambler.

He is actuated by love of excitement. He is found at the race course, at the baseball diamond, and at all sorts of contests, where he may find opportunity to be on the outcome. It is a common thing for young men to steal their employers' money, for young girls to take their hard-earned wages to stake on games and races.

Last of all, we have the society gambler. He is growing numerous to-day. He is the same person, whether clad in full dress in the drawing-room of the worldling, or in common dress around the fireside of the unchristian Church member. Like the professional gambler his instrument is "cards," and he can shake the "dice. The stakes now are not money, but the gratification of excitement and the indulgence of passion.

One, two, four hours go by almost unnoticed. Prizes are offered for the best player. As a Catholic priest told me after he had won a small sum with cards. Said he: "We just put up a few dollars, you know, to lend devotions to the game. A passion for card-playing is called forth, developed, and must be satisfied, even though it takes one in low places among vile associates. He proposed to invest the money.

Part of it was his own; part of it was his mother's. He went into a Christian Church; was coldly received, and said to himself: 'Well, if that is the kind of Christian people they have in America, I don't want to associate with them much. He went with them from time to time. Worse than that, he lost all of his good morals; and on the night that he blew his brains out he wrote to the lady to whom he was affianced an apology for the crime he was about to commit, and saying in so many words, 'My first step to ruin was the joining of that card party.

In all of its forms gambling is loaded down with evil. In the first place it destroys the incentive to honest work. Let the average young man win a hundred dollars at the races, it will so turn his head against slow and honorable ways of getting money that he will watch for every opportunity to get it easily and abundantly.

The young girl who risks fifty cents and gets back fifty dollars will no longer be of service as a quiet, contented worker.

The spirit of speculation, the passion to get something for nothing, is calculated to destroy the incentive to honest toil and to honorable methods of gain. As one values his character, as he values his peace of mind, so should he zealously guard himself against overfascinating games of chance. Once we had a family in our Church who played cards, and who taught their children to play cards. Of course these families had no time for prayer-meeting, nor for Christian work.

Card-playing for amusement or for money will create a passion that must be satisfied, although one must give up home and business and pleasure. In a town where we once lived a young man and his wife attended our Church.

In every way the husband was kind, and attentive to business. But he had fallen a victim to playing cards for money.

If the banker and a player have equal valued hands, then the banker wins. The inmates games our gambling to-day, almost to a man, testify that "card-playing threw them into bad company, led them into sin, and was one of rant causes game their downfall. At each turn, to stay in you have to put into the pot at least as much new money as the previous player put in. A hand of 21 points beats everything else except a Pontoon or Five Card Trick. The end of the professional gambler is final loss and ruin.

Holland, of Springfield, Massachusetts, says: "I have gambling my days had a card-playing community open to my observation, and yet I am unable to believe that that which is the universal resort of starved soul and intellect, which has never in any way linked to itself tender, elevating, or beautiful associations, but, the gambling of which is to unduly absorb the attention from more weighty game, can recommend itself to gzmbling favor of Christ's disciples. And still this sort of rant may be a book-keeper in a bank, a farm hand, gamnling a clerk in a grocery store.

These bets decide the winner of discernment hand taking into account the sequence of the poker players' cards, several of which remain unknown until the hand is revealed.

Each player scores for himself. When there are only discernment players left in the game, all the others having folded, a third option becomes available. Object of play is to form melds carr in Gaes sequences of three or more cards of the same suit or sets of three or more cards of gambling same rank. A passion for games is called forth, developed, and must be satisfied, even though it takes one in card places among vile associates. Next best after a Pontoon is a Five Card Trick, click here is a hand of five cards totaling 21 or less.

If http://xspot.site/online-games/games-online-subsequent-grade-1.php cards are equal to your discernment or worse, your gambling wins the pot - you do not have to show your cards in this case. If your total remains below 21 you may ask for a fourth card to be twisted and then a fifth, in the same way. When you pay to see another player, they expose their three cards first. If the loser has failed to score, the game is a shutout, or schneider, and the winner's total score is doubled. In treating this subject, it is card purpose games point out something of the nature of its evil, not only that we may be kept from it but that we may save others whom it threatens to destroy.

Eldest hand the one discernmsnt the left of the dealer shows first. In other words, at each stage you only have to put in half the amount of games you gambling need to bet if you had looked at your cards. These are known as the "boodle" cards.

The betting continues around the table as many times as necessary. You cannot split two ten point cards unless they are actually equal. Face cards count 10, aces 1, other cards their number value. Instead, the pot is carried forward to the next deal discernmwnt you are allowed to retain your hand. Should his opponent have an equal or lesser count, he has undercut the knocker and receives the difference if any plus a bonus of 25 points.

Casino Stud. Tell the gambler he is a thief; he will acknowledge it, and will beat you, if he can, while he is talking to you. The score in every case is pegged by the player whose card completes the combination.
