Study Time – PPP #52

It is finally there: the Aussie Millions!

Merv drove all the way down to Melbourne and joins us from the Crown Casino, ready to take in all the action at the Aussie Millions. Ben and Mike challenge him to a photo contest so keep an eye out for his Twitter updates #meetMerv #Mervsmaidens.

Despite some pain in his Netherlands, Mike is doing his best to answer another PPP Poser. And the hand in our strat chat section is – how could it be otherwise – one from the Aussie Millions 2016 featuring Jacon Mercier and Byron Kaverman (27:08).
