dealer's choice

Harry Truman's "motto, 'The buck stops here,' refers to the dealer's button or placeholder, because during the 19th century hunting knives with buckhorn handles often served that function.

Photo by b1-66er and used without permission only because 1) I'm posting from this hospital room and 2) it was the only poker-like imagery I happened to have on my phone (so lucky for me it was an excellent image) and 3) I haven't had a chance to ask him yet.

(hey b1 -- mind if I use your photo?)
