Heads-Up Play Is No Laughing Matter -- Or Is It?
 
The commentators are spending most of their time making jokes about the word "check." These players are from the Czech Republic, and they eat Rice Chex or Corn Chex for breakfast. Then they talk about hockey, because the players can receive fouls for checking. Many different ways of saying there's a lot of checking.

Limp-Check, Check-Check, Check-Bet-Fold -- Repeat
 
These final two players seem to be limping and checking as much as is allowed by the rules. There may not be much action unless both players wake up with two pair or better.
