Hold'em Japan: A Joe and Hobby Fiction

Hobby and I met for lunch at Marlow's, an upscale seafood place in West L.A. Since it was my turn to buy, Hobby picked this place so I wouldn't get off lightly.

"A drink before lunch?"

an effervescent waitress asked.

"Golden margarita," Hobby answered. I might usually go for the same, but I wanted something lighter.

"I'll have a Captain Morgan spicy rum and tonic, please." I replied.

"What's that, Joe?" "It's a little different; it suits me today."

"I'll try one, too. Skip the margarita."

Poker Cop: 'O' is for Open

I scream hysterically, "Don't shoot! . . . Don't! . . ."

"Don't shoot," says Don Paulo quietly. No one shoots.

"I believe you, Mr. Thayer. Keep searching for this 'Small Man.'"

"I will, but I want something in return."


"The girl, Jenny. Give her back."

The Don says, "My father once told me never mix women and poker."

When I don't reply he says, "Your funeral." And walks away.

My funeral will have to wait. I take Don Giuseppe's $25 poker chip out of the cast on my left arm and tell Jake, "We're going to The Limp Inn."

True Red Dog

A few years ago, some of the casinos tried to put in a variety of Red Dog as a table game. They called it Red Dog but that was a misnomer as the game they introduced actually was In Between. In Betweeners is nothing more than just a kitchen table game.

True Red Dog is a four-card poker game in which you don't play against each other, you play against the money in the pot and against the deck. So it is not a competitive game between the players.

Today's Word is... 'Seat'

Sometimes when I say some seats at a poker table are better than others, people just snicker. They think I'm kidding, because I make such a big deal in my teachings about not being superstitious.

Superstition, you see, does only one thing well. It reduces choices. It takes options out of your playbook and costs you money.

It Ain't Easy

It's not only "not easy"; it's hard as hell. On my personal scale, it was the second hardest thing I have ever done in my life. That is the line I use when someone ask me how I did it. Of course their next question is what was the first hardest thing. I jokingly say, "Not killing my husband when he broke my heart!"

Poker and Smoking

For the record, I don't smoke. I've been around a lot of people who do. A few of my friends smoke. It bothers me, but I never grumble out loud, only internally. I prefer to spend my money on books, instead of cigarettes. Reading is my habit of choice.
