I am 74 years old, still older than you and around ten years older than the Ghost, and forget that talk about breaking even wih him after three sessions, and thirty a game is the same as betting more $$. I know he is as serious as a heart attack when you guys play, but you are a seasoned money player and surely have more in the tank.
Plus, he plays better now since there must have been a little coaching going on with the corporation before our match. I doubt you just handed him the $$ and said 'Go Get I'm. I won and offered to adjust a little to play again.
I believe I need 9/7 from you and can win if I play well. If we do play again and I win 9/7, I will bet it all back 10/8:heh. The Henderson Parlay System at work.
I won't be at the Derby, so it will probably be Vegas until we see each other again, unless you entice me to Chicago.
John, I really like you as a person, however, as far as 9/7 goes it's too much in your favor. The 10/8 handicap is all you need to be competitive with me, that was proven with my game with the Ghost and for that reason alone i'm passing the 9/7 offer. Thanks but no thanks. Don't forget about the " monsters in your cornflakes" thing, it's all in your head.
