It was one of those rounds where nobody folded
The bets kept coming and coming, everyone was eying each other up trying to read the bluffs in our faces. But the sheer amount at stake kept the sweat dripping of our collective poker faces.

The next card came up

"im in, raise by 10"

one by one all the other players folded till it was just me and him. I looked at the bet trying to remain calm, this guy had owned the table all night. I calmly downed my single malt in one, and replied

"all in"

neither of us was backing down this was it. He slapped his pocket aces down and reached for the winnings. Wordlessly I raised my hand to stop him the revealed my hand, a flush on the river card.

All the quality street was now mine. 2008 was the best boxing day ever.

Damn right
The standard exchange rate is 3 Quality Street = 2 Roses = 1 Terry's Orange = 1 Miniature Hero, is it not?

If you're going to play for chocolate, at least play for mans' stakes.
