This video was recorded during the epic birthday party we hosted for Lara Miller and it kicks off with a textbook shotgun demo from Mr. Brunson, complete with elevated finish and high-five with yours truly. Check below for the insider play-by-play.
As a small aside, Brunson's wearing Roderick from POKERLISTINGS' media badge, not PokerNews as Lara says.
Sadly some of the other participants were unable to learn the proper technique. Second up is Newby who pretty much blows the entire operation. Sorry Newby but it's true. First he punches the hole with the can vertical, then somehow takes like a minute to drink whatever was left.
Third is our good friend, and pride of the French poker media, Benjo. He had the determination but didn't fully understand the process.
Benjo forgets one important part, popping the top of the can. As a result he spends a good 18 seconds getting it done.
I'm up next and I hold my own pretty well. I'm saying about 2.5 seconds. I get a nice little angle-shot in by yelling "Go!" while Todd's still punching the hole in his can.
