View from the booth

“Don’t get into pots with him. Just value bet your good hands if you do, don’t bluff him. That’s a good strategy. Check some medium strength hands and let him bluff at you because he loves to play.” – Phil Laak about Talal Shakerchi

“I wish I’d said all in a little more today.” – Jennifer Tilly reflects on her play in today’s heat.
