R-Day Minus 50

The Poker Mutant will be retiring (mostly) from poker on 1 January. This is the latest installment in his thrilling countdown to the End of Times.

Not playing anything today because I’m trying to finish off Lab Girl by Hope Jahren—a National Book Critics Circle Award-winner—for my book club tomorrow night. Reminds me a bit of my mom; some of my earliest memories are of the labs she worked in while I was a small mutant.
