People just won't play that game with him, anymore. No fun. No chance of winning.
There is more to gambling than cards and dice... I'm talking about his taking chances in battle and negotiations based on his instincts and intuition and bestowed memories. Such as his skirmishes with the Aiel in TFOH, his "negotiations" with the Atha'an Miere in TPOD, his escape from the TOG in TofM, and other situations where he diced with the Dark One, so to speak. Don't forget, his soldiers follow him because of his reputation for luck in battle, not in games of chance.
