Rolled Up Aces Over Kings

Worm: Hey, you know what cheers me up when I'm feeling shitty?

Mike: What?

Worm: Rolled-up aces over kings.

Mike: Is that right?

Worm: Check-raising stupid tourists and taking huge pots off of them.

Mike: Yeah?

Worm: Stacks and towers of checks I can't even see over. Playing all-night, high-limit Hold'em at the Taj, "where the sand turns to gold."

Mike: F*ck it, let's go.

Worm: Don't tease me.

Mike: Let's play some f*cking cards!
