Singaporean Man Loses Wife in Poker Game
A Singaporean man lost his wife in a game of Texas Holdem after putting her up as a stake instead of cash.
Lim Tai Hua had run out of money in a game of poker and offered his opponents his wife instead of cash to stay in the game. His opponents who were all single at that time, gladly accepted the deal.
When he lost the game and his opponent Emmanuel Chin turned up to claim his winnings. Lim’s wife Xin Hua was so angry that she decided to divorce her husband and started a relationship with Emmanuel.
She has since married Emmanuel, and said she does not regret leaving her first husband.
She said: ‘It was humiliating and I was utterly ashamed. But as soon as my ex-husband did that I knew I had to leave him. How could anyone stand living with a jerk like this?’
‘Emmanuel was a very handsome, charming man and I am very happy with him, even if he did “win” me in a poker game.’
Lim declined to be interviewed.
