Days are like hands in Texas Hold’em. Some are good, others are better, and some are simply the best.-Henery X 

One Better

“Well, Jim. After twenty-five days and fifty players, we’re down to two.”

“Yes, Steve. And one of them is going to win fifty million dollars.”

“Here we go. David gets dealt two aces, and Keith receives a pair of kings.”

“Here comes the flop. Six of clubs, four of hearts, and the ace of diamonds.”

“As to be expected, Jim. David bets big. Fifteen of his thirty million.”

“Keith calls. Leaving him with five million.”

“A king of spades on the turn. David checks.”

“Keith goes all-in. As does David.”

“Here comes the river. Oh! It’s the king of clubs!”
