Assault due to card game bets in Cooked Food Centre

Last night at 4:31am at Chuk Yuen South Estate Cooked Food Centre of Wong Tai Sin where most cooked food stalls have closed, one man and a woman, respectively, Lam × Wah (46 years old) and Chung × Kwan (60 years old) were having a great time playing card game until they had an argument over winning and losing issue, in which one party would not admit to losing and not paying while another sweared to get the money. The two ended up assaulting each other causing lots of noises around that neighbors around called the police. The two were separated by the police and sent to hospital for treatment due to both reporting injury. Lam reported suffering injury on his face and Chung reported her right eye and face suffering injury. The two were arrested and taken to a police station for investigation.

 

According to neighbors, Cooked Food Centre became quiet after midnight withh some local residents sitting in Centre to enjoy the cool air, with some playing card games to pass time. Neighbors said that they didn't rule out that some people gambled in the name of playing card games and they often heard disputes and even using physical force all because of bets and money.

Gamling is never a good idea to begin with, it leads to lost of money, death, and also injuires. That is why I hate people to gamble.

I thought gambling in Hong Kong is illegal. So why are they playing card games for money?

Unfortunately in gambling there's always a bad loser who can't bear to give their money away to the winner. Why bother to gambled in the first place? They could just play the card game with no money involved. They will never learnt, bet they start gambling again at the first opportunity they get.

It depends on people. Some people just gamble for fun, when they lose they quit and walk away like there's nothing happen because they just don't want trouble.
