This was a very nice read, and definitely one of the better Little Black Classics I have read. Also, it was my introduction to Pushkin. The story features a man obsessed with what is supposed to be the secret magical set of cards with which to win a fortune. Needless to say, this does not end well for the main character. You know that this is how it will end but it is an interesting way to get there.
