More Than a Game
For some, poker is practically a religion, but for many, it’s a way of testing their mettle against life’s many punches. When the cards are dealt, you never know what you’re going to get. Some people are born lucky and seem to be a magnet for trip aces. Others make their own luck, especially when the stakes are high, and could bluff their way out of Brexit given half a chance. The thing about luck is that it comes in a variety of guises. For those who are living with Aids, it sometimes appears as amfAR, The Foundation for Aids Research, an evening of esteemed guests all there to raise the ante in the fight for a cure. And the ace up the sleeve for this evening of glitz and glamour is the gorgeous hostess, Charlize Theron. And that ain’t no bluff!
