Rounders Co-Writer Discusses 'Optimal Play’

For those of you who haven’t seen Season 1, Billions is loosely based on the activities of Preet Bharara—who you may remember as being the U.S. Attorney who was instrumental in taking down Full Tilt Poker and others on Black Friday.

Back in August, Hellmuth announced that he and Cantu would be cameoing in the upcoming series.

Here you can watch series co-creator and writer of Rounders, Brian Koppleman discuss the episode, 'Optimal Play,’ and the parallels he draws between poker and hedge fund management.

As an aside, anyone else find that Taylor is channeling Eleven from Stranger Things in this scene?
