Steele held a full house. "I'll see your five and raise five."

"Let's make this interesting," Johnny said. "Ten more."

Steele's eyes narrowed as he sized up his opponent. Did he have a better hand? The elderly man revealed nothing.

"You're quite the card player, Mr. Cooper," Steele complimented. "No tells."

"I've been playing this game since before you were born, son."

Steele nodded. "I raise you twenty."

Johnny lowered his cards. "I fold."

"Not folding with four kings again are you?"

"Perhaps," Johnny smiled as Steele gathered his winnings. "But why would I possibly need a pile of matchsticks?"
