"What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas" is a humorous caricature of Sin City often laced with sexual innuendos that had thrust young lovers John and Sylvia headlong into this city of temptation. The "Poker Rush" was at its all time high at the World Series Tournament in Las Vegas. Its gazillion bright lights - a beacon to the downtrodden economy's lofty hopefuls, whom were preyed upon by the sly James Foxwoods of the world! Just like the olden times of California's Gold Rush, John perceived it to be a get-rich-quick life of luxury, not just for himself but more so, especially for his childhood sweetheart, Sylvia. Sadly, John learned the hard way what every savvy poker player was perfectly aware of; that being mathematically sound in poker was just part of the "equation" of a successful poker career. He soon discovered that it's also a game ruled by emotions and random chance, and that sometimes the mathematically sound decision wasn't necessarily the best one, especially if love is what's at stake. Alas, the proverbial "House of Cards" on which their dreams were flimsy built on had finally fallen and crumbled, leaving in its wake a chaotic dusty trail of the telltale signs of shattered hopes and love gone awry.
