1147 Tara Deal sent this superb image in from New York, USA. She wrote: "Sometimes, you gotta pay to play. This was the good advice from my friend Michi, who taught me how to play blackjack 25 years ago in Atlantic City (New Jersey). I had lost some money and was thinking of quitting.

“Michi convinced me to put more money in. He never said I'd come out ahead--only that I'd get to stay in the game. Which is enough, as it turns out. Photo taken on the top of my apartment building in Tribeca, at the southern end of Manhattan."
