Inspired by Keay's wonderful description of the poker game in her June challenge, I decided to see what I could find on famous poker cheats (I meant specific types of cheats that are done) and ran across the following.  Maybe it will inspire some bunnies for folks.

Some are relatively contemporary to our boys.

Great link, Riders.  Thanks for posting.  I know nothing about card games.

Ohh, I should have checked these out myself. Still I'm pleased that my story inspired you!

Does anybody know, when playing 7 card stud poker, can a player look at their own down facing cards throughout the game, or do those cards have to remain unkown until the showdown?

Yes, Keays, a player is allowed to look at their own downward facing cards, also know as the hole cards.

Thank you Sky! I couldn't find anything about it in the various rules I looked up. I guess they figured that someone who knows absolutely, practically nothing about poker, would know this! ps; this is  how I wrote the scene, because it made more sense, but I was prepared to go in and change it, if my guess was wrong.

Thank you, Riders! I had seen the site before, but lost my link to it when my old laptop crashed. I love the stories about famous poker cheats - there are two among them whom our boys might have run into.

For those interested not only in the cheats, but some basics about poker - I posted something under Historic Research.
