Caption reading: Jim Kramer (Roseville, MN) (left) and Joe Weinike (New York, NY) draw to see who goes first in their game. Joe's annotator, Gregg Foster, seems to be in on the "joke." Notice that these players travel with their lucky racks. Jim uses a standard wooden rack and Joe uses a long, lucite rack. At the end of this game, they will slide the standard racks back into position for the next players at this board.
