50/50 

           Jerome is lucky again this week - and took the pot!

  Scam

            Fred, Earl and Jerome were all in line to draw from a brand new deck...

         Fred and Earl both pulled spades - but not the right one, and Jerome pulled

         an Ace - but not the lucky one.  Maybe next week...
