What a fantastic story and i really enjoyed watching this on the news. This guy deserves some kind of medal for his actions. I really hope that the bookmakers make a fuss of him and he gets quite a few free bets out of it at least

For an 85 year old he sure has some stamina, chasing and kicking Smile the robbers.
Not that it was something smart though what he did.
It doesnt worth risking your life to prevent a robbery, like the policeman also noted.

This octogenary managed to frighten those young attackers. If he had not been there perhaps the robbery would have succeeded, because the other person who was in this bookmaker shop, he had been sitting under the chairs when he saw the attackers and shop manager, i do not think he could stop the robbery. This brave old man deserve respect and a cash prize. Blink

What an Incredible story .... in 85 years to confront the three robbers is something unthinkable .... Of course he was lucky that such robbers caught the cowardly .... and just did not shoot him ..... but it could be so .... it would be a completely different story ..... sad ..... cool Grandfather .... a very cool Grandfather

It is something that you can say you dont believe, unless seeing it with your own eyes.
It is remarkable, and it shows, that he still has guts Smile
It wouldnt be a surprise if he got some nice "rewards" to play in the establishment Smile
They already said he will be looked after...

The new mode must be changed during a tournament with real money because smart players will know who you are or how you play. The strategy of hold'em Texas is the most valid in tournaments with big buy-in or in cash with big money of course. At the small stakes, it matters less because there is playing like in the jungle... many savages which plays everything cards with all in.

Would have been an entirely different story if they would have start shooting with that shotgun tbh - whenever something like this happens I think about that they were lucky on both sides... The old fella is a hero nevertheless.

maragatero you are a bit in wrong thread and probably you wanted to post in some other thread about this thing of playing texas holdem and strategy of your play!
this grandpa is main story now,but everything would be sad story if there was some older criminals,not this younger mens or kids!

I saw the clip's thumbnail somewhere and I thought it was a fake stuff so I did not watch it as I was in a hurry. So aparently it is real and will search for the video as soon as I will have time Big Smile I hope that he got a small reward fot this heroic gesture.

Congratulations to the octogenarian for being in shape and acting like a hero and helping the manager of the premises, but he must be careful against whom he faces of equal was a very brave fact
