I taught Max the basics of blackjack. After a couple of days, we migrated to betting with Monopoly money.

Today we played with marbles as stakes.

If Max gets blackjack, he asks us to double down and we are barred from doubling down if we have a chance of winning. πŸ˜‚

It was Monday morning. Swaminathan was reluctant to open his eyes. he considered Monday specially unpleasant in the calendar. After the delicious freedom of Saturday and Sunday, it was difficult to get into the Monday mood of work and discipline.
