This made it a dead certainty that Hairlip did not hold three tens. I was sure Monty knew this and knew also he had a lock with three sevens. Hairlip had obviously made aces over tens. He bet $100. Monty reached for his wallet. He threw in one $100 bill. Then three $500 bills. 'I raise you fifteen hundred dollars,' he boomed. Hairlip scratched his head for a moment and looked at Monty's cards.

'Now, kid, you're playing real good and winning us some money - that's the proof. ' He looked at his watch.
