Before each game, I arenad our hand over the vents in the bonus room to make sure they weren’t blowing any cool air, plus I double-checked the thermostat to ensure that the bonus room zone was set to 72 degrees.
I’m abysmal at poker, and despite having played for some time, I just can’t master our poker face. Despite our acting failures, I still host a biweekly poker evening at our family’s home. After years of losing disastrously to our several relatives, inspiration struck a single evening when it was particularally hot in our bonus room. The Heating as well as A/C plan had been acting up, plus the room where all of us played was warmer than usual, even the people with the best poker faces couldn’t contain their discomfort at the warmth of the room. It distracted them; they were so busy worrying about the sweat stains under their arms that their faces betrayed their hands. I betted accordingly, plus for the first time, I was the victor of poker evening! Although an Heating as well as A/C specialist came out the next day, diagnosing plus repairing our leaky air ducts, I decided that I would be turning up the heat in the bonus room on poker evenings going forward. I told our relatives that I was keeping our thermostat at a higher temperature to maintain energy efficiency, plus to reduce our cooling system’s impact on our electric bill. They all seemed to understand, but their respective games were absolutely impacted by the lack of cool air in the room. Before each game, I arenad our hand over the vents in the bonus room to make sure they weren’t blowing any cool air, plus I double-checked the thermostat to ensure that the bonus room zone was set to 72 degrees. Since our wife plus I usually keep the current home at a cool 72, the poker players essentially walked into a sauna every time all of us played. The discomfort of the weather conditions impacted almost everyone’s play, plus as a result, I won more often. I was also more confident, knowing that I held the reins to the comfort of the rest of the group.
