The UK newspapers are reporting on a sad tale of gambling addiction. Graham Calvert was a highly successful greyhound trainer, earning a salary up to £30,000 a month. Calvert realised he had a problem and asked his local bookmakers to bar him from gambling, but it was not enough. He ending up losing over £2m.
On the flip side, a chap recently turned £1 into £7,000 on a very, very long shot. He wisely took the money and ran.
