Yes I did too.  The "powers that be" were definitely on his side.

I am not sure how I feel about Priests playing poker, somehow feels wrong, no matter what the outcome is.

It didn't "seem right" to me either however, it was a fantastic result for his church.

Well I am sure that it will make a good story anyway, but then, what to say to someone who comes to him, talking about his gambling problem :)
