I had the pleasure to spend the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend with both sides of a major American logistics firm that is expanding into the Chinese market. I met several of their experts from Shanghai, and had just a wonderful time. Texas Hold ‘Em, Guitar Hero, and Call of Duty provided the entertainment, as did several delightful young children.
I probably would have done better at Hold ‘Em if I had bothered to learn the denominations, instead of just calling the chips blacks, reds, blues, and whites. Still, my strategy of making sure that some of every color were in each pot made for an interesting game, worthy of Wall Street (or my new favorite boardgame, Credit Derivative Monopoly).
