You expect Slim to sit and grind with you for 12 hours? To quickly flip the 10's over after you call, and silently rake the pot?
Anyone else, do the tables break into applause? No one would even care it happened.
Sucks to be the original poster and lose with the Aces. Just had the misfortune of playing the role of the foil in that one. But he got an Amarillo Slim story out of it.
