People v. Lam (Cal. Ct. App. - May 10, 2010)

(1) Don't gamble more than you can easily afford to lose. E.g., $20,000.

(2) If you forget (1), do not steal the $20,000 from your wife to pay off your losses.

(3) If you forget (1) and (2), and drunk and despondent about your plight, the solution is not to take off your necktie and strangle your wife. This will not help. Finally:

(4) Don't bury bodies in your backyard.

Even fleeing overseas won't help. You'll get caught and do serious time.

Remember all this the next time you feel the joy of winning a pot on the river. Yes, it's fun. But not that much fun.
