By Robbie Strazynski
September 03, 2020

Robbie and Bruce recap their home games, played both online and in person. Bruce hits a royal flush, while Robbie eked out a win with quarantined Kenny watching from the virtual rail. The game featured the (unofficial) home game call of the century, as Maurice and Moe squared off in badeucey; it’s a story you HAVE to hear.

George Chao of BBO Poker Tables talks about the future of live poker in the U.S., as rooms begin opening up, as well as home games re-starting after a lengthy hiatus. Plexiglass shields are becoming the norm.

Finally, Ben Ludlow brings the laughs and the heat in this episode’s One Outer as he recaps the 2020 summer of online poker, and what he misses from “real world poker.”
