A few minutes ago, Brian Roberts was involved in a quiet conversation, and it ended with him grinning widely and looking rather relaxed. We figured he'd gotten over the little tizzy with the production crew, but his irritability has returned.
Jack Effel just leaned over to Roberts and cautioned him: "You have to show your hole cards."
"Well," Roberts began. "What's gonna happen if I don't?"
"You'll get a penalty. It's in the rules," Effel answered. After a moment, he added, "All of the other players are showing their cards."
"Because they're not in the eight seat," Roberts snapped back. He explained his problems one more time to Effel, and they're going to try to work on a solution during the break. The rail is rather high, and Roberts is a bit cornered by the edge of the table and the big stacks of both he and his neighbor Moorman.
