I'm not that crazy with prop bets. But one time I was in the car with SC Trojans [Scott Freeman] and TLC "No Scrubs" came on and he was like I LOVE Destiny's Child. I'm like it's not Destiny's Child. He's like it 100% is. I'm like I'll bet you 100 it is. He snap says ok. And as soon as he does he realizes he's made a mistake, gets really annoyed and immediately ships me the $100. Quickest $100 I ever made.

Like a wheel, the Round Table is a circle of adventures and victories, beats and stories, and life as it unfolds with a cast of characters that may, or may not, have joined you in your home on a local TV program. There's so much more to poker than what you see on TV. Although I won't use canvas, I will paint the full picture for you as I follow the lives of some of your favorite (and some unknown) players. The Round Table is an ongoing series of life, viewed full circle.
