Michael Ian Black told us he's a poker whiz, but we wanted to see if he's bluffing. So we pitted him against a worthy competitor, World Series of Poker champion Matt Matros, in a no-holds-barred trivia showdown that covers poker lingo, lore, and the world's weirdest bet.

Plus, Jonathan Coulton rounds out the game with a cover of "The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers.
