Top Pair Podcast 306: Who's At Your Ultimate Fantasy Home Poker Game?
In episode 306 of the Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast, Bruce Briggs and Robbie Strazynski engage in a fantasy draft of sorts to see which players they’d love to have seated at their ultimate home poker game. Some of their selections might shock you!
The guys then catch you up on all their own home game happenings, with Robbie barely getting any time to play but winning heaps, while Bruce looks to purposely bust out of a tournament early… for financial reasons?!
In closing, a poetic One Outer segment that’ll leave the taste of sorbet in your mouth.

|Robbie: Only 2.5 hours to play home game poker in the last two weeks; reflections on the difficulty of leaving when the game’s still going, especially when you’re up big and running well. Plus a fun hit & run story.|
|Bruce: Still adding new games into the weekly home game mix. Up 120 BB in the latest cash game! Also, discussing an interesting situation where it pays to be the “lonesome loser” in a poker tournament. Does a crazy style of play in order to try and bust out first make you a douche?|
