Silence except for breathing
then the cards are shuffled.
The cards are dealt
to each player.
An all in bet
by the low stack.
An all in call
by the big stack.
A roar from the crowd.
The flop, then the turn.
The big stack in the lead.
The river comes.
Everyone gasps at the card.
Against all odds
the low stack wins.
He takes all the chips
and it starts all over again.

I like playing poker so I wrote a poem about something that could happen during the game.
