Dying to Win at Poker

Dying to Win at Poker

Don't take gambling so seriously. Have a read, have a laugh and see the funny side of losing at poker.

Six guys are over at Stan's house for their weekly poker game. Abe is having a bad run and keeps losing. Finally he decides to go for broke - all or nothing. He bets everything he has and loses over $500 on the hand. He clutches his chest, chokes, turns blue in the face and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five complete the hand standing up. 

Roberts looks around and asks, "Now, who is going to tell the wife?" 

They draw straws. Don Smith, who is always a loser, picks the short one. 

They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, don't make a bad situation any worse than it is. Remember that Abe's wife may not be so well, either. 

"Gentlemen! Me, discreet? I'm the most discreet man you will ever meet. Discretion is my middle name, leave it to me." 

Don walks over to Abe's house and knocks on the door. Abe's wife answers and asks what he wants. 

Don says, "Your husband just lost $500 playing poker." 

She hollers, "Why that no-good so and so! Tell him to drop dead!" 

Don says, "I'll tell him."
