I worked in Norwalk for 10 years beginning in 1978. There was a guy in the office who lived and breathed jai-alai, and he would occasionally organize an outing. Bridgeport was the place.

As an old horse player, with no clue to the scoring nuances, I wondered why the trifecta payoffs didn't track with the win payoffs. Why, when the winner was a longshot, the trifecta payoff might be small, and vice-versa.

I began to attend more often, and study the game. You know the rest
