[Bioshock Infinite] Booker deWitt and his debts

Recommended Posts

Dear beloved DooM - Community,

I have an unusual question to ask and I hope that somebody can help me out. Well, you guys are my last hope ;-)
To make things short: After years and years (13)of playing DooM and countless pWads, I finally managed to play another great game which keeps me trapped in front of my monitor: BioShock Infinite.
So, after playing through this jewel several times to get the full point of the story, there is only one final question:
Booker deWitt has debts, or at least a single huge one because he gave his child Anna away, a very brutal 'last hope' decision, I think.
But what are these debts??
I spent hours searching the www, but nobody seems to have an answer, maybe because people are not interested in that question or there really isn't any answer because the game itself doesn't tell.

Maybe one of you know the answer?
Thanks in advance, have a peachy day and be well ;-)

Pretty sure this is explained in the game. IIRC, after the death of his wife he starts gambling which leads to him building up a huge debt.

Edit: Searched all over the www, eh? First result. :P

Hey, thanks for the fast reply.
This was my first site (the link you posted), but I am still confused.
This option may be right, because of the things you can see all over Booker's desk. (horse-race bets,the pistol,alcohol,etc...)
But like I said, I am not sure about that.
I mean, he give his little baby away? 'Only' because of debts?
How hopeless a situation can be that a man can do such things?
Ok, Booker tries to take Anna back from Comstock shortly after his fault.
(As you can see, BioShock Infinite has taken over my mind^^)
Maybe I can find some hidden voxophones with info's about Bookers fall.

Finally, I found it!
When you enter the AirShip the first time with Liz (that's where you have to use the electro-vigor), a small conversation starts and Liz is asking Booker about Anna.
Booker doesn't want to talk about Anna but he admits his compulsive gambling.
