A while ago, a well known poker insider who wishes to remain anonymous approached me with the opportunity to do a regular web-based TV show.
"The idea is you interview poker hands," he seethed through his teeth, which were as brown and yellow as October in Vermont.
I was reticent. Oh yes, reticent. For one thing, I don't really want to have my face go public on the internet. For another, I'm not sure I have the whole TV personality vibe going. And also, I'll be honest: Some poker hands scare me. But finally he talked me into it.
"Come on," he said. "Do it."
What can I say? I'm impressionable.
So here's the first episode, which was a lot of fun to shoot. I'm hoping that we get picked up.
