New Short Stories and Three Hand Pinochle
. Book Summary: This book contains a collection of short stores on life events encountered by the author and members of his immediate family, fictionalized for presentation to a broader audience. It also includes a head’s up on “Three Hand Pinochle” a card game for the masses defined as having two levels of players: Level 1—social players and Level 2—players registered as competent to play the game in competitive financial events, for example: casinos, cruise ships etc., under rules explained by the author [Phil Duse Rules] which make the game truly challenging and unforgiving of players who for whatever excuse fail to follow the rules. Such infractions are defined and qualified as reneges or “Opps” which either result in a loss of “Melt” or both a loss of melt and reduction in score equal to the bid.
