  1. Near the end of the interview, were they saying they could beat many pros at HU NLHE, or LHE? I assume they were talking about NL but it wasn’t clear.

    • Talking about NL. They’re claiming they Cepheus can beat (or at least not lose to) anyone in the world at HU LHE.

  2. Imagine my confusion when I started listening to the strategy segment on my way into town, then picked it up again on my way out 8 hours later, tired and confused. 490 in the pot? Villain bets 370? What cash game is this? Who submitted the hand?

    It wasn’t until the river that I finally remembered this was in Peso’s.

    Had to share. Thanks guys. Its a pleasure listening to you.
