If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.

Katharine Hepburn


Here is your poker hand:

      Eight       Seven       Six       Trey       Deuce

Your hand is a flush (better than most). Since your hand is one that beats a lousy pair, your webmistress has increased your previously assigned limit. Your webmistress encourages you to try for still better!

In this session, you have had no previous hands. This is your first. Your limit for this session is sixteen, increased by seven from your original limit of nine. You have fifteen more chances to try for better, or to play against your buddies.

Hands that beat a pair increase your limit. The better your hand, the greater the increase! The winner is not necessarily the person who draws the highest hand. Rather, the “winner” is the person who is able to achieve the highest limit of hands (webmistress's website, webmistress's rules).

Anyone can play. Your ante is prepaid. No need to thank us. Your visiting us here is thanks enough.

This page remains in development. When fully operational, it will invite user names, and keep track of players' achievements. That may be weeks, or more, away. In the meanwhile, statistics that appear below, if any, are to be taken with a grain of salt. They are calculated from test data.

Once fully operational, there will be winners every month so long as there has been sufficient activity here. “Sufficient activity” might include, for example, a certain minimum number of visits, and a sufficient number of visitors. These numbers can be adjusted from time to time, as may be indicated.

Winners may receive prizes. No registration will be required to play. Registration will, however, be required to qualify for a prize. Visits by unregistered players will still count towards the monthly required minimum.

Thus far in September, twenty sessions, by four separate visitors, reached or exceeded their limit. The highest limit attained was seventeen. That limit was first reached on September fourteenth.
