Retired poker pro Justin Karet claims to be “over the game” and has spent much time disparaging the professional poker circuit to the media over the past year. Karet’s claims have no credibility, however, for despite his boasts that he would not bother to travel more than 30 minutes to attend a tournament, even if he expected to win, Karet was recently sighted at the Fulterton Poker Tilt, a sanctioned tournament event held 90 minutes from his hometown of Guerra.
Which of the following, if true, would most weaken the argument?
A) Karet has “retired” twice before, only to return to professional poker each time.
B) Karet was heard to claim that he would win the tournament handily, and did, taking home an estimated $115,000 in an afternoon’s play.
C) Karet no longer lives within an hour’s drive of Guerra.
D) Karet was offered a significant appearance fee to attend the tournament.
E) Karet has also claimed that blackjack is superior to poker.
