      For me this just goes to show how poor the play at the play money is, how easy it is to earn play money from and why you should never use it as practice for real money games. Just such low quality, bet anything with anything players. Still, can be good fun on occasion, though.
      'Cause I have done it before and I can do it some more I got my eye on the score'
