I enjoyed the story and recommend it to others. It is basically a romance, but with gambling and business operations added. If you like to read about people doing well and having good sex, this may be a story you will enjoy. It isn't a stroke story, but the hero does well with several of the women he meets.
Doing the numbers, 6 a "C", average. 7 is a "B", good. 8 is an "A", very good. Plot is an 8. There is a lot of it and there are a few surprises. Technical is a 6, average. "To" for "too" and other issues there is no point in reciting. It doesn't spoil the story but I can't bring myself to call it higher than a 6. Appeal is an 8, very good.
This is an older story, from 2001, you can tell because the girl he wins in a poker game turns out to be 13. She says she is 17 and he gets her a birth certificate that says she is 21, but you won't see a newer story on SOL with a female this young these days. I found it because it turned up in the stories from the past at the top of the front page. If you didn't see it there, there isn't much chance you would read it, buried in the 41,000 other stories on the site. That's what reviewers are for, to give some publicity to stories you might otherwise never see.
