Randy Stones and another heart attack story.
August 25, 2011 § 1 Comment
I spoke with Randy yesterday.
He told me another heart attack story and I decided to make a short post out of it.
Randy was still breaking in at the Horseshoe learning to be a 21 dealer. He was dealing to two guys for most of the night who were drinking and having a good old time betting it up decently, $50 to a $100 a hand. One guy was playing two hands on second base—that’s the center of the table— and his buddy was playing one hand sitting on third base, the last seat. The guy on third base playing one hand goes all goofy looking, has a heart attack and falls on the floor. He had just been dealt two cards and didn’t know what they were.
The guy on second base plays both of his own hands and then asks his friend who is lying on the floor what he wants to do with his hand. The guy on the floor says, “What do I have?”
Second-base guy looks at the hand and says, “You’ve got 14.”
“What’s the dealer’s up card?
“He’s got a face card up.”
Heart-attack guy caught a face card and busted the hand.
An ambulance came and heart-attack guy was taken away. His buddy stayed at the table playing and said he’d go over to the hospital later.
Randy is alive and well.
He doesn’t know what happened to the heart attack player.
