How to Play Poker

For a short time, America went crazy for poker. Missy and I were as guilty as anyone else, and we both reached a level of mastery I think one would call “semi-competent amateur.” (Missy was much better at it than I was, which will surprise nobody who’s actually met us.)

I actually went so far as to enter two non-money tournaments. (Missy entered some real money tournaments as well.) I managed to come in second in the first tournament I played, but it wasn’t due to good play on my part. I think it was my unorthodox table image. I comported myself as a friendly but shy guy who didn’t talk trash and was there primarily to have fun. Turns out that persona made a lot of the other players instantly angry, so much so that they were still hostile the next time we played.

Good news everybody! My most recent novel The Authorities™ is available now!
