Let's Play

Would you like to play?

C'mon, it's easy.

52 cards, neatly arranged by suit and rank
Alone, their value is little more
than the number or face with which each is stamped

But let them dance on green felt

Let them be touched by hands
That know how to coax the connections

By a mind that can choreograph perfection
from the devilish swirl of infinite possibility

And suddenly, 52 separate soldiers become an unforgiving army
of kings and queens, deuces and jacks, aces and nines

then their value is measured in treasure, in riches
in hopes and hardship
in wasted lives

in broken men.

C'mon, it's easy.

Let's play.

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
