Great family story. Glad CJ took the risk of playing for money....or he may not have found out about poker and all it's.....rewards!

Little kids always have luck when you try and teach them a lesson...love the bastard comment and I'm sure she said it. I'm stealing that cartoon and putting it on Facebook!!

Your son is a riot! I hope he put some of his winnings in the bank -- although he'd make more if he just keeps playing grandma! lol

Putting money in a savings account is terrible financial advice. Better to open up a Roth IRA.

What a delightful story. Hope it didn't hook him on gambling or if it did that he remained a winner. . Loved that cartoon.

Great story. I was teaching a little guy to play chess. He beat me every time.

I'm glad my grandma didn't play poker. Getting trounced in a game of croquet was bad enough!

Yeay for CJ! I may or may not have experienced a similar fate when I taught my youngest son to play chess.

I'm tickled and giggly by the fact that your son had luck and karma on his side. A most amusing story, Stephen. Thanks for the cheer. xoRobyn

Putting money in the bank earns something called interest? Sounds like it's a lot better idea to use it to play poker!

You paint such a vivid image of your mother.. what a hoot.

When the finger went to the temple he must have been sizing her up, wondering what she might have in the pocket book.

So funny! I feel I know your mother very well, after reading so much about her. And calling her grandson a 'little bastard' - Priceless!
By: Bryan Jones on April 12, 2014
Having read a lot of your posts I could well imagine your mother saying those words when she lost. Well done, CJ, and thank you, Stephen, for another great story. It's hilarious! :)

Hilarious. And I will never play poker with your son... or your mother. The dog cartoon is brilliant. That would be me.

So you raised a hustler? Good for ya, Stephen. :) S

You should of known your mom wasn't throwing the game. The fact she called her little grandson a bastard pretty much tell us that she wasn't planning on losing. Really funny story though...did CJ grow up to be a professional gambler? Or did you win all of his winning back the following night?
