Poker is the one and only thing Jake can beat LeBron at!
Host is a conspiracy theorist liar
Should be banned off the internet like trump. Uses his platform to spread lies and conspiracies and bullies others.
Guess I should at least leave a review for winning the 88 > AK vs Nate. At least I can confirm you played fine and got unlucky. If I remember right fun player on the btn got you for 30 we flipped for 20, the blinds moved up, you played one QJ hand questionably then lost a flip.
