Class is in Session

For any poker players out there that want to improve their short-handed tournament play, I highly recommend Poker After Dark on NBC at 2:30 am. What makes this show a little different than all of the other poker coverage that's saturated the airwaves is that NBC and Full Tilt have minimized the editing, and broadcast the majority of hands dealt. While this obviously makes the production less expensive for NBC, it also provides a greater educational tool for the aspiring poker player, who can get a better feel for the texture and tempo of tournament play. This week should be inspirational to even the novice player, who will quickly realize that at the very least, they have the same skill set as Chris Moneymaker; and if he can win a bracelet, then anyone can.

The rest of the lineup includes:
Jamie Gold, Johnny Chan, Chris Ferguson, Doyle Brunson, and Carlos Mortensen.

And of course...Shana Hiatt (tho unfortunately, NBC hired a high school drama student to apply her makeup- so I'll post a pic from a better day.)

Yeah, with my fatal combination of insomnia and being a degenerate gambler, this 2-3 am programming seems to be catered specifically to me.

I mean, I can only watch the Girls Gone Wild infomercial so many times.

(Turns out that "so many" = approximately 75.)
