Game Theory – Pilot Episode

Omar Bawzy I gotta tell you Omar this resume looks
pretty thin little to no work experience no
accolades attributes applicable skills I can get college interns for these office and you haven’t even completed a simple high school diploma Now I’ve talked to your father Told him, I’d do what I could to get you a job I uh… I used to play poker online Then what they call black Friday happened the
government got involved, it was a big mess. Anyways that’s why I’m here. It’s for the best, I mean you got all these people sitting at home, playing games, gambling, not paying their
taxes. Now you gotta get a job in the real world. So you lost everything huh? I’m not a gambler, I play poker I was never high-roller but I got my bills paid, It’s not like I’m some kind of degenerate. I play a disciplined skill game The legal stuff going on has nothing to do with me. Look I know I’m here cuz of my dad so
anything you can do for me. Alright Omar, I’ll start you at min-wage. You can scrap that shirt and tie. You’ll be doing manual labor A little hard work for once hey? What the fuck? Hey, what’s up Omar? Any word online? It’s still all frozen. I’m jammed up. You’re dad hook you up with that job though right? I’m not gonna work for some fresh out of college
academic douche who treats me like shit. You shoulda seen this pimple face suit. Diego I gotta make a run for it. Grind live games, if I could get one buy in I could blow it up. Ah fuck those low limit live cash games man, everyone’s a fish. When most the table’s fish you’ll always be getting run down. Your hands won’t hold it’s the wild west nowadays. What choice do I have? Besides I want the fish they’re bankroll builders. uh… not that many fish See in those games any two suited pairs raising under the gun, queen-trey, jack-deuce, seven-x raises still getting five callers. That games a crap shoot. I can’t lower myself to that level of bingo play. What’s the good game out here? Just Tang’s local right? You got a connect to get me in? Man, you don’t wanna be fuckin’ with those Asian sharks. For all their congenial social graces, they some cut throat mother fuckers on the felt and if they get a whiff of scared money, man you’ll be… Right back here with no money, working some 9-5. Isn’t it just the five-five game? Starting yeah. But by the end of the night those degens are splashing around, rasing max buy in, triple auto straddles, prop betting and they got deep pockets. That’s what I’m talking about Ah, I wish I had the role to play in that game. K, I’ll start early before their stacks get deep and just grind. Diego I got this, get me in. Yo it’s not a stake alright it’s a gift so no pressure. I’m heading out east for a minute and man I just don’t wanna see the life sucked out of you when I get back. All day every day brother. Under the gun opens for a standard raise Tang three bets with strength, running over the table. No cheap flops around here. Suited semi-connectors out of position
against Tang when I know he’s gonna pound the flop. Fuck it, I can’t let him run me over. If I four-bet I nkow he’s not afraid to call and I’m just building up a big pot out of position with napkins. Now if I flat call and tight under the gun player goes over the top I can put him on aces or kings under the hole and just muck The one hole folds Damn Tang’s table presence is strong. In previous betting he’s checked top or over pairs he does slow play monsters, plus I haven’t shown any speed so he would probably want me to catch up if he was really strong. He can’t have ace-jack or king-jack or medium pairs because i don’t think he would three-bet the under the gun raiser with those holdings He knows the one hole is the only other tight player here. For all his bully posturing Diego profiled him as fundamentally old school. He must have ace-king maybe ace-queen Either way my two might be good because it’s not a call me bet. Smells like a get out of the pot type of bet. His stare, is that a tell of weakness? I wish I had more live experience If I call I could face a big fatty for my entire roll on the riv. How did I get in this mess? Is he advanced enough to range merge a jack rag, a snowman or a seven in this spot? Tripple barrel bluff jam? I’m getting like three-to-one. Would he be bluffing twenty five percent of the time? live and die with your read, he’s gotta be on ace-king Nice call. Nut no pair. Where the fuck did you get that? Look I went to the interview but it’s jus…
it’s not for me. I’m not cut out for… Hey, I put my name on the line for you. You fuck up and it reflects on me so I don’t give fuck what you think
was under fire what you think and you you’re gonna go do that job. I’m not gonna sit here and let you ruin my name over some dirty gambling money.
It’s not gambling, I have an edge. For fuck sakes. You think I let you move back in and I go clean toilets all day so you can fuck off and gamble Look onlineit’s not regulated it need’s legislation, that’s politics okay but the game itself is a skill game I made more in two hours than you make all week. Tax free! I can give you half if that’s what this is about.
Fuckin’ Kid. Fuck off! Fuck you!

  1. Really nice job. In my opinion it would be even better if the pace of the scenes and dialog was a little faster. But still nice hope will be able to continue 🙂

  2. Thanks for your interest. Please make donations through our Indigogo page as it will help us reach our funding goal.

  3. Cant wait to interpret this into my game… oop coldcall an ep 3bet with "semi suited connectors" then stubbornly putting villain on AK, that must work 🙂 Personally i think Omar won SM with the help of a miracle for the first attempt, and spewed away money ever since 🙂


  5. his friend sounds like a good poker coach for him ..hope he gets more parts to guide Omar..
    good show..must subscribe…bless.

  6. Correct for a 3 bet, for a standard raise ($15-$20), it's not a BAD play if he's a standard TAG. But against a tight open and aggro 3bet, it's a terrible play. Pick a better spot.

  7. Looks really interesting with lots of potential but i think you need to work on the pacing of the show a bit and concentrate more on character development.

    Also another suggestion is making the show more friendly to people who know less about poker. This will expand your audience and get you more funding. I don't want the series to drag itself down to a completely ridiculous level though. I believe this can be accomplished as you have established our protagonist is new to live poker.
    Good Luck!

  8. Great pilot! Nice directing & don't mind the "mainstream-minded" advice, personally, i dig how your show rests on the precept of the viewer being a poker aficionado. Well done. Bravo.

  9. 10:47 see thats how u gotta treat these internet poker players lurkin in there dingy fuckin bedrooms! Whip em! . I Love the lamp technic ,really nice touch! personaly id opt for the haymaker style whippin motion but overarm works just as well . good job. i hope in the next episode the omar gets raped by a gang of crack heads, whilst he sits on that bench looking smug

  10. I thought it was cool. They need to not go too far with the lingo…."I might face a big bet on the riv" lol…I like how they are showing thought process during a hand, but maybe merge pro and amateur lingo ranges together 🙂

  11. would be careful about assuming AJo & KJo aren't in aggro regs 3b ranges, bold assumption imo. obv after we chkcall turn our decision is made, nothing to even think about on the river

  12. Seems kind of shortstacked to be making moves facing a 3bet with a 4-2 suited, then just calling it all the way down. Feels pretty passive for shortstack.
