Did James Bond actually enjoy gambling, or was he doing it purely for the pursuit of an espionage goal?
Thinking back to the various James Bond movies, Bond (whether it was Connery, Moore, Dalton, or any of the more recent impostors) gambled. Sometimes it was Blackjack at a casino, sometimes it was Baccarat, sometimes it was playing the horses, and at least once it was Backgammon with one of the Faberge eggs as the stakes.
Do you think that he enjoyed games of chance? Or was his reason for playing only to further his espionage pursuits?
