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.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.
