Episode 87: Big Blind Protection Rule?

One of the worst things that can happen to a tournament poker player is to pay the big blind, only to have your table broken and find yourself in the BB again at your new table. The RunGood series tested out the Big Blind Protection Rule (BBP) to counteract this poker atrocity.  The Overlay team breaks down the rule, and how it played out in it's first implementation.
