Sports News Without Fear, Favor or Compromise

Okay so you’ve got two weird poker guys here, which is not surprising because this is the main event of the World Series of Poker and all poker guys are weird. One poker guy, Will Kassouf, spends what feels like hours trying to goad the other poker guy, Griffin Benger, into tipping his hand. Kassouf later refers to this strategy, which is so goddamn annoying, as “speech play.” Poker guys: the worst!

Anyway, Benger manages to stoneface Kassouf for about five minutes, but at the 4:45 mark of the video above, he finally cracks. Benger starts yelling about how Kassouf is verbally abusing him, and then shouts, “Check your privilege!” multiple times. What a strange and confounding moment in poker history.
