A Sure Thing

Thursday

If you’re looking to generate extra cash, it isn’t necessary to steal a railway arch on which Banksy has left his mark. You can also go to a casino.

‘Blackjack’s a game of skill’ says my companion – a grizzled veteran of the tables – as we stride into a gambling den in central London. ‘Play the odds and you can’t lose.’

I follow his advice, and am cleaned out in five minutes.

They say a fool and his money are easily parted. But I’m no fool, I’m Britain’s answer to the Cincinnati Kid. I therefore withdraw another £100 and continue gambling.
