That's Baloney

Tony 'Baloney' Recchia is a fixture in the community and the poker community. His sandwich shop near the entrance to American River College is a community institution. Pick up a bottle of the salad dressing while you're there, but don't ask him what just happened in today's tournament.

Waking up with AA, Recchia meads to bet out 3000 - three yellow chips - but grabs three black 100 chips instead and gets two callers, one who ends up rivering a flush and sending the 70-plus-year-young Recchia back to Tony Baloney's for the afternoon.
