    A very well written story of a terrible night. This happened not long after I was learning all of the ins and outs of Greenville’s poker underground. I know several of the people involved and heard many of the stories but this really showed every side of it.

    Great job.

    Brad, the Bust series on Bitter Southerner is fantastic. A few weeks ago, I was playing at a private game in Raleigh, NC that was raided. As raids go, this one was almost lame. Two agents, a simple knock on the door, nobody freaked out, no weapons drawn, all players released in less than 10 minutes, no cash or property confiscated and the host not charged with any crime. They just told him to shut it down.

    Of course, many years from now when I try to recount the incident for my grandchildren, I’ll tell a fish tale, and your chronicle of Aaron Awtry’s saga will inform my narrative. Maybe with a few re-reads of your story and enough self-delusion, I’ll begin to believe I was actually there.
