The Green Harvest, Part Two

Cast: Tycho, Gabe

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Gabe and Tycho are each holding a hand full of cards, loads of money and Doritos are on the table they're seated at. Gabe is staring, eyes tightly fixed upon his cards.}
Tycho: Alright, now look at your cards. What do you got?
Gabe: I have three kings, and two nines.
Tycho: That's a terrible hand.

Panel 2

{Tycho opens his mouth widely, appearing distraught to Gabe.}
Gabe: Really?
Tycho: Oh, yeah. Kings hate nines.
Tycho: If you get a hand like that at the event? Honestly? I wouldn't even tell anybody.

Panel 3

{Tycho holds up a two of diamonds, with a suspicious scowl on his face.}
Tycho: Okay, now, I had the hole card. That means I win everything.
Gabe: Aw, man. What's the hole card?
Tycho: This time, it was a two.

Explanation Edit

Gabe has a full house (a set of three cards of the same rank and two cards of a different rank). A full house is a very strong hand. A two, on the other hand, is the least valuable card in poker.
