Show Time Stamps

2:35–37:10How Ya Runnin?
 Robbie: Experiencing the vicissitudes of home game poker… set over set, boat over boat, and knowing what it’s like to feel “upstuck.” Plus, big plans for the summer, heading out to Las Vegas for the World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions and Super High Roller Bowl, as well as the World Series of Poker.
 Bruce: Badugi, the “Rubik’s cube of poker”… back to “breakeven Bruce” mode. Plus having enough different dealer’s choice games in the mix to not repeat a single variant all night, and trying “inversion Omaha.” Finally scoring a coveted “multi-life” tournament cash.
 Bonus: How Kobe Bryant cost Robbie a LOT of money at the poker table a few years back…
