High Stakes - Winner takes all......(private)



The invitation had been intriguing, a poker game against a new arrival, one who has stated she was flush with cash and looking to experience the full range of activities the hotel had to offer.

I admit this was quite normal, the hotel often pushed guests my way, usual business men, hoping I would ensure that they were soon parted with thier cash and more vulnerable to the hotels attempts at securing their services.

However, this was a bit different, a female guest who was looking to learn how to play and was happy to part with some cash in the process.

So here I am, in a private room, awaiting the arrival of Ms Pullman.......I check my watch, 8.03pm and smile......fashionably late.
