High Stakes Poker Season 6 Episode 10 Recap

I love how the episode starts out with Gabe Kaplan’s commentary about Shabbat dinner at Eli Elezra’s house.

High Stakes Poker Season 6 Episode 7 Recap

Away from the table action, once again I liked the Negreanu Did You Know? segment about implied odds (excellent addition to the show this season!). What was even more entertaining, however, HILARIOUS as a matter of fact, was Gabe Kaplan’s post-segment commentary about “putting your opponent on implied tilt and he might give you an implied middle finger” LOL…
