Do the Math

Eleven guys walk into a basement to play poker at eight o'clock and are divided into two tables of five. Two guys have gone bust (one from each table) after the first couple of hours. It takes another two hours to claim just one more guy. By the sixth hour though, two combat-fatigued guys have flaked-out and gone kamikazee (losing everything in one suicidal hand). Then a phonecall from one guy's wife results in his premature cashout. The two tables are consolidated into one, but soon the host tips over onto the floor. After two more grueling hours, wherein the host has managed to crawl only halfway up the stairs to his sleeping quarters, the remaining guys split what's left of the pot (less than a couple hundred) and skulk home to beat the rising dawn.

i netted about $2.

Was it worth it?
