Question of the day

Who would make the better poker player--Special Agent Seely Booth, or Dr. Temperance Brennan? Booth: Wily, suspicious, ruthless, and psychologically insightful, but emotionally volatile, easily tilted. Brennan: Wicked smart, cool under pressure, unflappable, analytical, calculating, fearless, but with no insight into others' feelings and motivations, uncomfortable using deception.


Non-fans of "Bones" need not apply.

Brennan would impossible to read, wicked smart, but too straight-forward with her play reversing the known "weak is strong/strong is weak" type of play.

Booth is an excellent interagator that has no qualms about check-raising with air.

Limit games - Brennan
No Limit - Booth

I agree with Drizz, but would add that Brennan would probably destroy 1-2 NLHE as well.

You guys do in fact know that the Booth character is a recovering compulsive gambler??
