Quandary Resolution 5402
bleb, peckled, saponaceous, Yarborough

Eli Bunch was known as Slippery Sam to most of the security professionals in town for that saponaceous talent which had allowed him to slip through many Vegas casinos for years before being detected as a card counter, but now banned from them all, he found himself playing five-card stud in a dive with a peckled-face teen, a tattooed biker, a rather disheveled and perhaps homeless man who had parked a shopping cart in the corner of the room, and a working woman using spandex to stuff too much into a rather skimpy tube top, on an old pool table with blebs in the felt, as he recalled card games of the past when a Yarborough might have tempted him to bet against himself, but right now, with only a three showing, he was holding all four sixes.
