Frame 78: It’s Better Than Drinking Alone - After a heady night and a kickstarter triumph, the players relax with a little drink. It seems to hit them hard though and they both make uncharacteristic errors. And when you think how characteristic errors are for these players that is pretty amazing. It’s a denouement that beggars belief and will raise questions about collusion, betting patterns and off-shore tax havens. See Rich and the Mes (after the show) on tour.
