The clock showed 5 o’clock in the morning. Pablo Pares had been
playing non-stop for 12 hours. Two beads of sweat slid down his
forehead. He couldn’t believe his eyes: the three cards that he just
exchanged formed a magnificent royal straight flush. He tried his
best not to show any emotion. He felt the vein in his temple triple in
volume. His heart pounded like a drum in his chest, his arm began to
tremble, his vision became blurred…. and he fainted falling under the
table. Three hours later, when he awoke in the emergency room, his
fist clenched his royal straight flush so firmly that for several hours,
no one could take the cards from his hand.
