This seems weird, even though there's real no reason for it to be: successful people love gambling!

He earned a World Series of Poker gold bracelet after competing in the Seven Card Stud event over 310 other players. He’s taking home $105,629.
“I am ecstatic that a player as mediocre as me can outlast all of these better players and end up with a bracelet,” he said. “There’s still hope for everybody!”
