Posted by mrnugger: some time ago i have loaned some money to a friend , i was winning in a casino and he was losing ... still waiting on a part off that , my wife is a bit upset because off that so i am wondering who would loan money to a friend knowing that it is for playing poker or whatever games in a casino .
I have given people money to play poker with on many occasions.
Some have been trusted friends who have returned it at a later date, some I have given I have never got back.
Being a forum owner, I do not see it as a loan, merely a return for their loyalty. If they choose to repay it back to me later that is up to them but I would never chase anyone for money they owe. If by giving them money it would affect me in any way then I would simply refuse, but if I have it and it makes no odds to me if its in my account or not, then they can have it.
So far I would say I have given out about $300 for people to play poker with and I've got about half that amount back. So you could say I've gained trustworthy friends for $150. A small price to pay in the long term. Especially as some of those people have earned me well in excess of that through signing up to links I've given them..

Once i have done it to, and it was in a similar ocasion. Small amounts, i went to the casino with 20€ and make it to 150€ at StarWars slots. A friend was loosing at Roullete and came to me asking to play half-by-half with him in other machines. I ended up agreeing because i was already a bit drunk and finished the night loosing all the amount i won at the beggining. In the other day, he only gave me half the money i lost, because of the agreement. I was upset but it was my fault. His part, i only loan him because i knew he would pay!
