A Cautionary Tale in General Poker Forum Posted November 1, 2007 Yo, haven't posted here in ages.The facts are this:Zim loaned me $2,000 on a stake. I lost the money. It happens, was a weird time in my life. I don't feel good about it, but I don't make excuses for it. I didn't have the money when he asked and didn't pay him back when he kept asking because I just couldn't at the time.A lot of time passed and I hadn't thought about it. That's real shitty of me but it's the truth.When I won the tournaments he made a post, and I took care of as quickly as possible. I promise I would have done the same had he contacted me privately. Whether you believe that or not is ok by me, because I probably wouldn't given the history with Zim.I paid him $1,000 insurance which a lot of people thought was crazy, but I really ****ed Zim over and wanted to somehow show that I was really sorry for what I did.People **** up, and what I did made me a bad person. But it was a stake, and that's part of the risk. I tried to remedy this as best I could when he made the 2p2 post.Anyway, I accept full responsibilty for what I did and I believe I have changed a lot from then. I'm still a kid, but I realize the importance of honoring your word.
