Maverick, Beauregard "Pappy"
Professional gambler. (April 7, 1787 – July 8, 1880)
Known affectionately to his sons as "Pappy," he raised his boys under his own life's philosophy: Avoid work and trouble, stay out of other people's troubles, never drink, and never gamble... stick to poker. He raised his sons to be read and understand human nature, and to never cheat an honest man.
Pappy made his two sons, Bret and Bart, promise not to marry until they became 38 years old.
Pappy's lessons were taught by example. When his sons were very young, he took them into saloons and gambling halls where they could study their trade first-hand from an early age. His wisdom was reinforced with humor and witty proverbs, which his sons revered, quoted and lived by throughout their lives.
