QIANJIANG - A hardcore gambler in Zhejiang Province recently told the Chun'an county court that he walked more than 170 kilometers in two days for an illegal cards and mahjong tournament in Qiandaohu town after he lost all his money gambling in Hangzhou.
Xu Shun said he even lost his bankbook and credit cards and had no money for transportation. But after he got word of the Chun'an event he decided to pack some instant noodles and walk there in an attempt to recoup his losses.
It was all for naught, however, as police raided the gambling den and arrested several dozen people, including long-walk Xu.
A prosecutor told Xu, "if you worked as hard at regular employment as you did at gambling you might win a lot."
