‘NOW…. Here’s the plan.’
Clearly, this was not his first on-line game of poker. On-train-line, that is. Hah hah.

I WAS interested in the game and how Peter was playing it as I watched over his shoulder. I did understand poker, by the way. I just knew I didn't have a poker face. In that respect I was like my mother. There's a kids' game called 'Cheat' - you may have played it. The person who can lie most convincingly wins the game every time. Mum tried to play it against us kids and looked so guilty when she had to lie that she was useless at it.
I would have been like that in a real poker game. But not Peter Moloney.
