Smitten

thR2ZX19T8John Smith is so widely quoted even when he uses a wrong word the meaning changes so the quote makes sense.

John’s home is just down the beach from his favorite haunt and watering hole, Smithery‘s. He’s like a king who holds court during the day at the bar and by night at his home.

Somewhere during the evening a game of poker will break out. It lasts long enough for John to win all the money brought by his guests. The casinos of Monte Carlo don’t allow John to gamble.

The famous French gambler Pierre Bennett left John’s home declaring he had won. He came with 60,000 Francs and left with 4,000 Francs. For Pierre that was a victory.

Once you have played cards with John Smith it is said you have been Smitten.
