It is also a card game...which was played for blood sometimes in the
musician's backroom of Chicago's Jazz Ltd. by drummer Freddie Kohlman and
trombonist Dave Rasbury.
I helped with their bar bills when they undertook to teach me the game.
I soon began to buy my own drinks with the money I saved by NOT playing it
with those sharks!
