Is a good run, a good sequencie of results, but like klash23 said this guy dont play to win money they just play to win, and dont care with the money that they put or win, is a gambling thing for them, but win 2 times in a row is good, but not for all times, one time maybe is good, the lucky isnt all of his side all the time.
