NEVER GIVE UP: the most feakish victory of my life & I'm pretty sure it the most freakish possible

Not going to mention the players name, but I reminded him of it today, he'd blanked it from his mind & couldn't remember it. I've just returned to this site as ImDerc, but pretty sure this was prior to me reversing my name & I was called credmi back then, it was 5-10yrs ago.
It was my crib for the last hand, I was being flogged 99-118 & since he had the 1st hand count it wasnt looking possible that I would win, I had to peg out or my chances were almost impossible.
The cards played as follows:
He played an 10 value card, total 10
I played the same 10 value card for a pair & 2pts, total 20 (score 101-118)
He played a 7, total 27
I played an ace, total 28
He paired my ace for 2pts, total 29 (score 101-120)
I tripped the aces for 6pts, total 30 (score 107-120)
The final card I had was an ace, since the hand remained active, he knew I had an ace & what that meant & so did I. I acted like a smart arse & teased him for 5-10 secs, he left the table & game colony annulled the game thinking it was too close for it to work out who would've won. This game was for cash, so I complained. Game colony stood by their guns & didn't pay me out. I stuck by mine too & complained again, pointing out that my final ace was worth 14pts, 12pts for quads & 2pts for 31, meaning I'd pegged 22 to his 2 & won 121-120. Game colony realised I was right & paid me out.
The most freakish victory, don't think it can be beat, I'll definitely never forget it.

Ps: most people will think I am making this up, but it really did happen, if game colony still has records from back then, they will be able to prove that it did because as I said I had to complain twice to get my money paid out. Not 100% sure I was still credmi back then as I changed to ImDerc (& moved to France, lol) during this stage of my playing history on this site.

Wow, what a victory

I didn't feel too sorry for him, he's a much better player than I am. I may have won this little battle, but he has definitely won the war.

At you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
