Funny story of the month -- A day in a poker players life... but which day?

(Based on a true story)

As a professional poker player it's pretty common to lose track of time. Unusual sleeping schedule, playing for 24 hours straight and so on can really do that to a person.

So one night at a poker game a pretty simple question stir up a little more excitement than you would expect. It all started when one of the player asked another what day it is. The player replied confidently that it's Tuesday, but another player jumped in and said »What's wrong with you?! It's Monday!«. That was the start of a pretty fierce debate on that one simple question, and like all arguments between gamblers, this one ended with a prop bet as well. So both players bet on their days and asked someone to actually check on a calender. The »judge« answered »Boys, it's a split pot, you're both wrong, it's actually Wednesday!«

That's all for this month! Enjoy!
