On this week’s episode of the Weekly Burn & Turn, Robbie and Shimi jump into the show “totally unprepared.” As you might expect, hilarity ensues as the guys discuss such topics as shot clocks in poker, poker trends that didn’t catch on and ways to make your home game more fun.
The guys also talk about one of the more interesting news stories of the week, where a deceased man’s family and friends prop him up to play poker at his own funeral and of course, they play Name That Pro where Shimi proves that he is not just a fish at poker.
Check out the clues in this week’s game, and drop a comment on YouTube letting the guys know if the game was too hard or if you too think Shimi is a fish.
