Four Aces

In the debate last night there was a bit of poker word-play when Candidate Romney noted that Candidate Perry had been "dealt four aces" when it came to the Texas economy.

If Texas was four aces, then California was a Royal Flush. What the hell happened to that hand?

Actually, Southern Man understands. He has vivid memories of a grad-school game of spades in which he was dealt ten - yes, count' em, ten - of those black beauties. And two of the three non-spades were face cards, including an ace. It was the best spades hand he's ever seen, before or since. And then he mis-bid it, and then he mis-played it. It's surprisingly easy to blow a good thing.

Southernman, I scrolled down the right hand side of your page at the game listings. I am now addicted to the sudoka game. AND it is all your fault. I play before and after work, during breaks. What is the story behind this game? It is a very good way to relieve stress for me. Thanks! Would never have found it without you.
