Willy was a young man who had it all going for him. He had a good job and a great girlfriend. But he also had something else - a gambling addiction. It started innocently enough. A few games of poker with friends or a few hands of blackjack at the casino. But soon, Willy was spending more and more time and money at the tables.
He would stay up late and spend whatever he had on the slots or roulette, trying to win back what he had lost. The problem was that Willy never won. He would always end up losing more money than he had won, and he became obsessed with the idea of getting that money back. He started taking more risks, betting bigger and bigger amounts of money, trying to make a big enough hit to get him out of the hole he was in.
He had exhausted all his options and was desperate for a way out. He decided to take a chance and approach a loan shark in a last-ditch attempt to pay off his debts. He had heard horror stories about loan sharks, but he felt he had no other choice.
