RICH: Darn right, Danny. Elway flipped the knob straight on a wide elbow in the first round, and caught the balls short of a flip pair with a narrow flush in the second. Let’s see if he can continue his streak and nut flop a tilt on his backhand here in round three, at our feature table.
RICH: Here’s the deal. Lamont gets an Ace of clubs and a Joker which doesn’t help him much, because of course in Viking Secret Wild Card Poker jokers are anti-wild, and may lead to a squashed spin if another one comes up on the flaps.
DANNY: Elway however gets a king of diamonds and Mrs. Bun the baker’s wife, so he’s already in a very good position for a spin flush.
RICH: Play is to Lamont, who bets 2000. Over to Elway who takes his time to see that bet. Both men check, and it’s onto the Knuckle.
KNUCKLE TURNS UP A MAGIC CARD
RICH: No help to either player there with Elder Dragon Legend Vaevictis Asmadi.
DANNY: That’s a real shame for Elway, because Chromium might have actually helped him, despite his lack of mana. Looks like he’s still betting though.
ELWAY BETS WITH A RUBBER CHICKEN
RICH: Elway bets the chicken there.
LAMONT BETS A MEMORY CARD
DEALER LAYS OUT FOUR VARIOUS CARDS
RICH: And look at those Flaps! The three of clubs, the eight of hearts, Sir Robin's Minstrels, and Colonel Mustard with the Candlestick. That really evens up the playing field. Right now Elway's going to have to decide if he should hold the Knobs steady, cut the straight along his outside Felch, or scrump all his Grits in one trug and go ahead with the check.
DANNY: Wow. Lamont is clearly confident that he has the better hand and he’s put Elway in a tight spot. I wouldn’t be surprised if Lamont pulls out a full under-crutch moonsault.
RICH: And Elway checks.
DANNY: And a spin from Lamont.
DANNY: Double Indemnity.
RICH: Elway taking his time here.
ELWAY: (Pause) Gargle.
ELWAY PUSHES ALL HIS REMAINING CHIPS IN.
DANNY: Here’s the deal…
DEALER TURNS UP A FOUR-COLOUR UNO CARD
RICH: And it is all over. Against all the odds, Elway has done it! He crunched a heavy twist, let Lamont flip his gargle, and it completely paid off. The winner: Franklin Elway, your Super Mecha-Godzilla Viking Champion for 2008, and forever!
