  1. Five card draw was all the was played in the San Diego card rooms in the late 60’s. One or two tables were at most these candy store type establishments. I personally played at “Harrison’s” which was located at 47th and University avenue. There was a retired San Diego police officer who made bundles and got involved with a situation a losing “hard rock” (tightest) player in all of San Diego.
    After they “raise-reraise” they get all the money in before the draw, “Jack the Hack” discards a single card and says: “Gimme one”.
    The story is Ralph has been dealt: AAA77. Ralph discards the two 7’s and says: “gimme two”. Ralph catches the fourth ace and cracks the four 10’s which Jack the Hack was dealt. That’s an example of what you can do to a guy who’s “too tight”.
