In this episode Steve is in Las Vegas staying at his brother Chris' house over the holidays.  He's able to sneak away for a few sessions playing at the Bellagio, Binion's, and the Aria.  A couple interesting hands come up, one of which is laying down Queens before seeing a flop.

 

Mike is back in the game and back to his jovial self.  He's booked a few winning sessions, and the dynamic duo discuss playing AK from the blinds - in one hand heads up against a pro and the other against a reality tv star.
