Viva El Poquer!

Fidel Castro just resigned as el presidente de Cuba, and what better way to celebrate the conclusion of his 49 years of dominance than by playing poker and munching on a Montecristo #4 from Havana? That’s how they roll in Mexico, specifically if you’re an American expat in the Yucatan:

    That sounds like a lot of fun, seriously…love to steal some pots from the Federalis. Dan, aren’t those free Cubans worth more than the buy-in? Can you call that phone number and let em know that I’ll be running a little late, just blind me off.
