Comments feature temporarily disabled, but I still want your thoughts

A killer Spam attack has rendered the comments portion of this blog -- and many others at the Sun-Sentinel -- to require being turned off.

That hurts, because blogs are about conversation, the two-way interaction between reader and blogger.

Hopefully, it'll be up soon.

Meanwhile, my e-mail is if you have thoughts; at least send them to me, and if we're down for a long time, I'll work something out... maybe just a blog post where I cut-and-paste everyone's comments. Because I do enjoy getting them and they are necessary.

About the author
Maybe you've made the right play, maybe you haven't. Your heart speeds up, your stomach rumbles.

That's why it's called gambling.

ACTION is a view of the numbers, the psychology and the flavor of gambling here in South Florida, through our lens.

We do have one sure bet. There's something here for you.

NICK SORTAL began playing 3-card "gut" and "Indian poker" on high school band trips, moved on to "night baseball" and "pass the trash" during a Dr. Pepper-infused midnight game in the 1980s at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and now play in a regular neighborhood Hold 'Em game in Plantation. I have been given the assignment of writing about the gambling life in South Florida casinos for the Sun-Sentinel...which means sitting around watching poker on TV now counts as research.
