The great thing about being on @TrueGeordieTG 'The Showdown' is playing poker against the crazy, nonsensical, erratic styles of people who've never studied a hand of Hold 'em in their life.

The trash talk started early, and it didn’t stop.
Last week, PokerStars pros Fintan Hand, Ben Spragg and Arlie Shaban took their seats around True Geordie’s The Showdown poker table for a £1,000 winner-takes-all sit & go.
Poker was played. Stories were told. Laughs were had by all.
You can watch the full episode below.
That’s probably for the best, Fintan.

This wild 2-7 hand got everyone talking:
It's sort of funny until you realize that you can't unsee this after you've seen it. The fold on the next hand really is the cherry on top. pic.twitter.com/jAGTqC6Ym2
