Yeah, get a good look. This is one for the blogger record books. The Geek won a Stud H/L game.

I will not take any credit or brag about my amazing skills at games not called No-Limit Hold’em. Instead, I will give you a single hand from early on heads up that tells you exactly what you need to know about how I pulled this off.
