Mike stared at Jerry across the table. Jerry wore a Yankees cap and reflective sunglasses.
“I call,” Mike said. “All in.” He flipped his cards. “Pair of queens, pair of aces.”
Jerry gave a warrior's whoop.
“Wraparound straight! I win!”
“What the hell's a 'wraparound straight?'”
“Ace is high and low, so it's jack, queen, king, ace, two.”
“That's not real,” Mike growled.
“Okay, but a small straight still beats two pair, right?”
“That's Yahtzee, moron.”
“Oh. Good thing you didn't call me on those other hands then, huh?”
Also based on a true story. Except that I always knew a wraparound straight wasn't real. Was, however, disappointed that a small straight wasn't real.
