Upping the ante

‘You’re a liar and a cheat!’ Sammy snapped.

‘And you’re a sore loser,’ James said, stacking chips.  ‘I’d ask if you wanted to play another hand, but I seem to have cleared you out.’

‘You were crazy to bluff on a weak pair,’ Donald muttered.

‘He’s a cheat!  Nobody’s that lucky.’

‘Luck’s got nothing to do with it,’ James said.  ‘It’s good judgement.’

‘Well, you judged me all wrong!’  Sammy flipped the table to one side and lunged forward.

A sharp upper-cut snapped his head back.

‘If you’re upping the ante, Sammy, you’d better be able to play the game.’ 





A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Ah, yes, a friendly game. They can turn nasty so quickly, and you've captured that really well, Rob.
