Crazy story..... It doesn't even say whether he won at the blackjack table or whether all of the money he took from the bank ended up in the hands of the casino....

This is what i call stupidity, not determination. And i believe i can say with ease, that it is one of the definitions of it. Just pack it and go home.

now there's a creative soul... why bother taking a loan or begging for money your fellow degen gamblers while instead of going to the wc for a quick pee you can head to a nearby bank and take out a non returnable loan, it's a sort of bank's funding scheme for gamblers in need.

People do crazy things when they are desperate. This is one extreme example. It all comes down to ego. No one wants to look cheap. Everyone wants to look good. The reality is no one gives a damn about it.
