Alternative gambling strategy may also include cheating, bribery or nice run around of russian roulette. For desperate there's always praying.

I love lots of the quotes from Ambrose Bierce! He reminds me of Oscar Wilde. Both were witty, back in a time when that was not so drowned out by popular culture.
