In the Cards

11 Oct
My Canadian grandmother 
tried to teach me
card games.
In pinochle, players with
the most trump cards customarily win. 
But some biding their bids can trick out
with no trump to stop them. Of course, 
there are cheats who mechanically conceal
aces and tens up their sleeves, stuffing
the trump-ability of the opposition.
Then whining suspect gamers
are pushing to cancel the trump
altogether. If you loathe the rules,
petition Hoyle. Fat chance. LOL
