Play a Game, Lose $30,000, No Problem

poker.jpgThe Sun Sentinel reports on the ups and down of high-flying NBA card players. That’s literally high-flying, as in 35,000 feet high while flying between cities.

Sports players have been playing poker games while traveling for a hundred years, but today’s major league ball players apparently think nothing about losing thousands of dollars between one city and the next. Charlotte guard Derek Anderson says he’s heard of players losing $30,000 in one go.

Of course, compared to an average $5.4 million salary, that’s not a big deal.
