Richard Nixon's poker career

An excerpt from my signed copy of The Memoirs of Richard Nixon:

"My poker playing during this time has been somewhat exaggerated in terms of both my skills and my winnings. In Whittier any kind of gambling had been anathema to me as a Quaker. But the pressures of wartime, and the even more oppressive monotony, made it an irresistible diversion. I found playing poker instructive as well as entertaining and profitable. I learned that the people who have the cards are usually the ones who talk the least and the softest; those who are bluffing tend to talk loudly and give themselves away. One night in a stud poker game, with an ace in the hole, I drew a royal flush in diamonds. The odds against this are about 650,000 to 1, and I was naturally excited. But I played it with a true poker face, and won a substantial pot."

For most tickets, you can make standard flight changes including time, date, and goal as long as 24 hours of your flight takeoff. In case you're attempting to change inside 24 hours of your flight takeoff, audit Same-Day Ticket Changes. A few tickets, for example, Basic Economy charges, can't be changed after the Risk-Free Cancellation period. Right now changes made to your current reservation will apply to all travelers in the booking.
