We play for cars..

This is self promo # 1 of 6 for chucks photo illustration class.

In this photo, you see a high stakes poker player that is playing with a lower stakes play, or is that his bluff?

I was going for a clean shot of a poker game between two players that took a different approach to the strategic and psychological aspects of poker.

I tried to make strong relationship and tension between the two players by posing the far player tilting his head down and looking up into the eyes of the opposing player while viewing his cards.

In this situation, the low stakes player has a high hand (perfect hand) and it is to be assumed that the high stakes player has a lesser hand. But who’s the key player here?
