Ante Up!

Poker has certainly become a big deal, hasn't it? World championships. Celebrity tournaments. ESPN telecasts. The proliferation of poker playing web sites. And I gather the game of preference is Texas Hold 'Em.

Bah.

I'm old school. I love to play poker. But real poker. Dealer's choice. Baseball. Acey-Deucey. Draw. Stud. Criss Cross. Gut. Whatever.

Around a table of good friends. There's got to be a little money involved, to keep it interesting. Nickle/dime/quarter mostly. The main point of the activity is the social aspect of it. The money was always secondary.

Beer. Soda. Chips. Cheetos. Music. Pizza. Jokes. Gossip.

Good times.
