This is a before and after story.
Before Joe Tall co-founded Deucescracked.com and became known throughout the land for the poker expert and righteous man that he is, he hired me to coach him. When the initial program was over, I gave him my standard-issue diploma. It looks like this:
Yesterday, Joe sent me a text. It came with a picture. What he wrote was, “Still Tiltless after six years!” And the picture he sent was…
I asked, “How did the part that looks like lava get that way?”
And Joe replied, “The chip has a way of finding me over and over for 6 years now. I usually never worry about its whereabouts.

Now it’s hard as a rock again.”
