We shouldn’t have let Guy join our poker school. He was brash, loud and fancied himself as a snappy dresser. Worse, he regularly won our money. Worst of all, he crowed about his winnings and his poker-playing skills.

Throughout last week's game, he wore his latest fashion accessory: Aviator sunglasses with intensely black lenses. He boasted about how expensive they were and how cool he looked. The game over, he silently paid out his considerable losses. None of us had told him that we could see all his cards reflected in the lenses.

This week, he didn’t turn up.
