I probably don't have to do this but the purpose of the poker games is to show their thinking processes. 13 is more strategic and patient than the others while Slade is more inclined to take risks
and increase the pot. Joker is more inclined to give in a situation the others might stick into and see what happen. We don't know exactly how Fel thinks because this is the first time we have seen
her play especially since she played after Slade did.
