Mortdecai Question #17 - Poker

Unread postby Liz » Wed Mar 11, 2015 8:42 pm

As Fireflydances points out in her tidbit on Poker, every chapter heading is related to the game of Poker.

Take one or two chapters and explain how you think the heading fits the chapter.

Can you find the knaves, queens, kings, or dealers?

Can you add anything to the poker side of the equation?
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

We must not be poker players! :bigwink: I need a cheat sheet for the rank of hands, so I am not going to be able to add much to this discussion.

You think it's poker that's the issue?

Then I guess I will post yesterday's question after all. It's a similar exercise, without the poker.

Groan. I fear I know what is coming, and if it is, it didn't make any more sense to me than the poker did. :dunce:

Well, I was hoping you guys could explain it to me. :biggrin:
