Lodden Thinks, With a Side of Poker

will_shill • Level 2: 0-0, 200 ante

On a {7-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds} board, Bill Perkins check-called 7,000 from Alex Epstein and the river was the {10-Hearts}.

The pot between the pair came at an inopportune time, with the pair both involved in a game of Lodden Thinks. The Brain? Jason Koon. The question? How many times has Koon said the word "shit" since the age of 10. The current number was 2,000 from Perkins who checked the river.

"For Lodden," said Epstein. "I'm going to say 2,500. For the bet..." He put out 10,500 and Perkins called. Epstein showed {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts} for a flopped full house and Perkins mucked.

"Not a bad flop," said Epstein. "I'm not a greedy person but if I was picking flops."

Perkins then increased the number to 3,000 and Epstein took the under.

"Way over," said Koon. "Since I was a child?! I was 18,500. I think I say shit like 10,000 times a month!"
