"How can I lose?"

I have finished watching the "regular season" portion of the Doubles Poker Championship. One of the last matches had two back-to-back hands worth sharing.

In the first, somebody says the words in the title of this post, and something happens in the hand to cause the priceless quartet of faces you see above (screen shot cropped to eliminate the cards). Try to catch all the things the players say before the denouement, as they greatly enhance the fun.

The second hand is maybe the best example from the shows so far of what happens when two partners disagree on what to do in the middle of a hand. Annette Obrestad was throughout the series the one most willing to be openly critical of her teammates, so it's not surprising that she's in the heat of it again here.
