I played some $10-$20 limit at Binion's on the final day of the 2005 World Series of Poker, and wrote disparagingly of one guy at my table:
The one seat player wasn’t too sharp anyway. After he heard me speak earlier in the night, he asked me if I was from Missouri. “People from Missouri don’t sound like me,” I told him.
I also noticed that earlier that summer I wrote about a girl at the $1-$2 NL game at MGM Grand who had survived a brain tumor. Where was she from? Missouri.
