"Who is he?" I asked.
"Oh, Critters? Cool. Thanks, Guillaume." I picked up the card set and walked over to the table.
"Hi!" I said when I reached where he sat. "You Jeff?"
Dude looked up and a slow grin stretched across his face when he saw the silver case of chips. He kicked out a chair for me.
The next hand proceeded. Things were looking pretty good for me after the flop, so I raised the bet. Jeff eyed me speculatively, then said, "You know, I see you haven't got much cash, but I'm sure we can make this more interesting. How 'bout I throw in the best car in the universe? My Ford Mustang."
"I wish. Nope, haven't got that either. I do have a small moon out in the Toopa System. Haven't seen it yet, but the agent told me it has terellium deposits."
"Wow. That does sound good."
"So does this," said Jeff as the river hit the table. Maybe good for him. I was one card short of a flush and didn't even have a pair. There went my moon. I stood up.
You can visit Jeff (and maybe test his poker skills) at his MySpace page.
