“I think we Jews have a reputation for being interested in money. And I think that’s true to some extent. But I think Jews are very generous people and I think they have a healthy attitude to money which is: It comes, it goes. And I think a gambler is someone with the perfect attitude to money: it’s just stuff to play with. Money and poker, really, it’s just the chips. It’s just the ‘juice’ you use to keep the game alive. So I think there are a lot of poker-playing Jews for those reasons: we like the action; we like the money; but we have a healthy, vainglorious attitude to the money.” [Patrick Marber]
