    In case people are wondering why I shouldn't be trusted, here's an excerpt from this month's issue of Bluff:

    Leggo of my Legos!

    When I was a kid, cards fascinated me. I spent many a rainy day playing War, Gin Rummy, Spades, Five Card Draw, and I even fell for 52 Card Pick-Me-Up a couple of times. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice we gonna kick it to the curb.

    I still dont like being fooled. And with this in mind, I was concerned about my sons ability to hold his own at the card table. He can play a mean game of Mau-Mau (a German card game much like Uno), so I figured it was about time his old man should intrude on his childhood and teach him to play Poker Five Card Draw.

    Now to a four-year-old, chips dont mean diddly-squat. So I set up a game where we used most of his Legos instead of chips. Legos have meaning to a young boy. They are a tangible item. The small square blue ones were fives, double-sized red ones were tens, and the long yellow ones were twenties. I divvied up the chips into equal piles and explained that the object of the game was for him to get as many chips into the pot in order to win mine. I then laid the cards out on the table and demonstrated all the hands from aces high to an RF. He was very receptive and thought it was cool in the way that I shuffled the cards. Im stylish, man. Makes the opponents forget about the game.

    So we began to play. And after about a half hour, he was catching on. Even though I had to keep reminding him about the hierarchy of hands, he got lucky a few times he even got dealt a pair of aces and pulled up a third after he discarded. It was time to get down to business I thought, and I commenced to kick ass. You should have seen him cry when he lost his last Lego. What a baby. And of course he had to go tell his mom.

    So much for playing a little kid; time for cyberland. And yes, Paradise Poker.com was my destination. A little poker paradise was on the agenda after getting ragged on by the ol lady for mistreating my mini-me....

    Just an end note: Intercasino felt sorry for my boy, so they sent me a complimentary box of poker chips :thumbsup:

    Ah, but am I teaching him to gamble, or am I teaching him certain survival skills?

    In my mind's eye, gambling = slots or the throw of the dice. Poker is more skill than anything else. You learn self discipline, the art of bluffing, knowing when to fold, (knowing when to run :D), and why it's important to never show all of your cards - win or lose. These skills are essential when you are out on your own, and daddy isn't there to help you any more :D

    When my son was 2 I would ask him, "what comes after 8, 9, 10?"

    I was quite proud that he knew the right answer, "Jack, Queen, King."

    Somewhere I've read accounts of old man Rockefeller actually cheating his boys at cards when they were young, so as to get them ready for the real world. Interesting philosophy. But true, life really is a poker game. I don't think you can teach your child too early that you need to be competitive in an adult world.

    ??

    Still got the Lego??

    I would check to see if the little critter hasn't reversed your cash-in for failing to meet the playthrough requirements :D

    "Dear Daddy,
    The management have reversed your cash-in of xxx Lego bricks as you have failed to meet the playthrough requirements for the promotion claimed.

    You have played 5 card draw for a spell, however you still need to take the kids to Eurodisney in order to fulfil the terms.
    Please forward DNA evidence and documentation to prove that you really are "Daddy", and not just an Uncle.

    Please note that should it transpire that you have multiple offspring with different maternal accounts all winnings will be void, and all Lego will be confiscated and returned to the toybox" :D :D

    You'll all be pleased to learn that the boy's Legos were returned soon after I won (fair and square). I told him to "quit sniveling" and be a man; chalk this one up for a lesson learned: Don't put all your Legos in one pile.


    But we have chips now...
