Limited to 200 numbered copies, signed on colophon by author and illustrator. A fine copy in fine slipcas. Tuesday night at Zink's Club 34, not exactly a hang-out of the rich and famous, and the few regulars present (apart from those at the card game upstairs or too far gone for rational discourse) discuss sure bets of the past which turned out not to be sure at all. To which are appended Joe Crow's eminently practical rules: "Walk away from bad hands early," "When your mind is elsewhere, go there," "Bad beats only happen to good players," and many more. With five colored wood engravings by Gaylord Schanilec, who also did the colored label on the slipcase and the decoration of the cover papers. Set, printed and bound by Schanilec.
