And the winner of the first NAME THAT GENERAL is Steve Sumners (followed by Pam Taylor and then Bill Johnson) who correctly identified James (Jim) Peters. Jim is currently living in Ocean Isle, NC. I will be having lunch with Jim in a couple of weeks and will post some pictures here. Watch in the next several days for NAME THAT GENERAL #2.
NAME THAT GENERAL
April 2010 had been one of the most difficult times in his life; his leg had been amputated below the knee. But now, after months of rehab with an artificial leg, he was on his way to Las Vegas and Texas Hold'em. And he intended to win.
He checked into the Luxor and found his way to the tables. Before long, he was dealt an ace-high flush; he thought he was unbeatable. He looked around the table at the five other players and realized that he would be the last to bet. When the dealer finally called on him to place his bet, he pushed all of his chips to the center of the table and said, “I'm all in!"
Then, he reached under the table, grabbed his already loosened prosthetic leg, tossed it onto the table and declared, "And I mean ALL IN!"
No one could beat that hand—and leg!
