Listen Up

Kids are great for at least one thing: Convincing them that you're really good at poker.

I've been playing small stakes tourneys online lately, and the expected-but-still-amazing bad beats have been killing me. The pair vs. pair, where the guy hits runner-runner shit - the two-outers on the river, that stuff.

My soon-to-be baseball All-star came into the room after I bubbled on two consecutive suckouts and said this:

"Dad, listen. First, I do not mean you, OK? I do NOT mean you."

"But some people, who play poker? Well, they're just dumb. But not you, OK?"

OK, kiddo, if you say so.
