So…after an eternity of pairs, flush draws and complete garbage, you finally find yourself staring at the whole reason for playing VP: four to a royal*. Do you do a little dance? Cross all your fingers, toes, legs…anything else you can find? Rub a rabbit’s foot? Beg or bargain with the machine (or your maker)? Or is it just business as usual? Me, I usually pause for a beat while muttering under my breath, “BE there”. Then I tap the draw button with just a little more gusto than usual...then utter a series of expletives at that ****ing four of diamonds! *If you play a game that places a huge premium on certain quads, you may substitute your “routine” for drawing with three aces or whatever.
