When some men discharge an obligation, you can hear the report for miles around.”   —   Mark Twain

(Oh boy!  Good ol’ Samuel would not be a fan of many of today’s athletes!  Some guys celebrate the smallest gain/stop/block/point, etc., etc. as though they’ve just won the championship.  Dude, or dudette, you just did your friggin’ job.  Acting like a clown is just disrespectful to your opponent, and makes you look like an ass.  Show some class.  Be a good sport.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  STACKED UP WELL

(An ace of a pun?  It definitely wasn’t a flop!  This should’ve been a more obvious answer, but it wasn’t to me.  And yes, I have played poker before.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  As usual, the only one to trip me up was the jumble for “poetic”.  The answer letter layout was a splendid thirteen letter jumble.  I thought it disguised the final answer very well.  I surmised early on that the middle word had to be UP, and the first word had to end in ED, but I thought the third was was LAST – no pun intended.  But, when I saw that I couldn’t make anything out of EKCLW to fit into the first word, I had to rethink things.  Fortunately, I had written out all but the ED and UP, so I was able to see STACK, and then WELL.

For me, I didn’t think that the stack of chips was obvious enough.  When you pull in the pot after a win it’s usually just a disheveled pile, and I didn’t see any other stacks by the winner.  But, other than that, it’s another fine basement, poker scene cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —  YUR

PS.   The spoilers are suspend for a few days, as I am attending my 40th college homecoming/reunion.  I will most likely get caught up though.  Have a good weekend everybody!      YUR
